Default First Timer's G14 Rebuild w/Pics!

Hi guys,

I've posted off and on w/Q's as this is my first time undertaking a project like this (not a ton of mechanic skills coming into this . I'm getting close, just waiting for a sheave to arrive in the mail to throw the engine back in the cart. You guys have been so unbelievably helpful (either when asking Q's or looking through old posts) so I thought I'd share some pics of what I've been able to do with your help.

This is what she looked like when I first got her:



It was a mess, so I cleaned it and tore it down:

I peeled off all the stickers from the cowl (total PAIN), then prepped and rattle-canned the cowls (tryin' to pinch a penny).



Rear Cowl Primed:



Rear Cowl Painted (Looks OK, not great)



Front Cowl Painted (Holes for Lights cut in)

Then I began running the wires for the lights and turn signals I bought from CPP (this made my head spin!)



Installed the turn signal lever:

So then I decided I wanted brake lights, too (why not right?). So I had to engineer a brake light switch. I used a post from someone on an EZGO or CC forum and bought a 1950s Chevy Pickup brake light switch. I mounted this on a steel plate and then placed the switch behind the brake pedal where the accelerator return spring attaches. I drilled a hole in the top of the plate to put the accelerator return spring on and it seems like it has proper tension. The switch works like a charm!

Side view of brake light switch:



Top view of switch:



Zoomed in view of switch mounted to plate:

I threw a speed spring in her, did some painting of the frame and what-not and have been rebuilding the engine (which has proved a touch on the difficult side). I have used mainly old posts here and the help of ppl like Dooms, Dave, and Spriddle and I am now in the process of putting the engine back together. However, I have run into a snag.

I marked the crankshaft for the timing with a perm. marker before taking it out of the block, but then like an idiot threw it right into parts cleaner, which took the mark right off. I've found old posts about getting the balancer timing correct without the mark, but am still a touch worried if I am off a couple of teeth, will it cause problems? How do I check to get it perfect (the cam-crank-balancer marks make a "v" but how do I know for sure if I'm on the exact correct teeth? Thanks a bunch guys!
