I recently aquired this motor from a friend. He replaced the piston and rings but put something back together wrong. He thinks he put the needle bearings in incorrectly.

Here is what is going on:
You can only turn the motor so far by pulling it or turning the magneto.

I assume he did put the bearings in incorrectly. Could he have done something else wrong? COuls he have overtorqued the connecting rod assembly?

Does anyone know where I can get a service manual for this motor?
