Manual Reference:  Engine install
Brief Description:  Mounted engine to engine ring

Removed the engine from the shipping container,

Removed the starter, both carburetors, the water pump housing and the clamps holding the ignition wiring (primary side).

Worked with the factory to determine that I did, in fact, have the correct parts. The issue had to do with the part numbers on the parts, the part numbers listed in the construction manual, and the pictures of said parts. All turned out well - except the steps required to install the engine ring are far short of the effort needed to do the job. In this case, I decided to remove the starter motor as that for sure would help with the install of the ring and I wasn't convinced that the other option would work. Unfortunately the starter is mounted unlike any other I've worked on and I ended up (accidentally) taking it apart. So, I got a lesson in putting it back together. I'm ready for the time when I really have to do it intentionally.

Also, the Cherry Max rivets I needed to finish installing the butt ribs came is so they were installed as well.
