Hey so I'm in thr process of building a single cam 30 and I just have a few questions.

First being the torque specs for the crank girdle, still retaing factory bolts? I have looked around and got mixed answers. Thanks.

Second being piston ring positioning. I will attach the guide I used from the fundamentals course below. I am just curious to the idea behind the top compression ring having its gap on the thrust side of the engine?

And third, I have a spool spline driven gear set fitted to my crank. I have heard you need to check the clearence for the pump gears?? I just want to know where am I checking this clearence and what clearences are acceptable. Thanks.
