Just to help he is degreeing or angling the prop from what I can tell rather then just using the marks on the prop also when the guys said don't do anything this guy is doing I think he is referring to don't use and impact but u only skipped to the 440 mark

Edit I only skipped to the 440 mark and that's not a level it's an angle finder I'm pretty sure

So be it I used a red sharpy pen to mark the position of the blades, I don't have to use that thing, correct.

Also was I supposed to use red threadlocker on the 7 bolts inside the gear reduction unit? The ones bolting it to the rear of the engine.

Thank you guys. I got her back together. I will fire it up in the morning. I need a clear head and clear vision to do that. Right now I have neither.
