Peter, the crank should be shimmed to give the correct end float when correctly assembled. If you have not put a Scott crank together before, TAKE ADVISE before proceeding otherwise you WILL damage the engine.
The cranks MUST be supported when “knocking” up,
Hopefully you will get someone close by with previous experience to give you a hand as it’s much easier to do with two people anyway.
If not send the parts to One of the engine rebuilders for assembly.
Sorry if you have done this before, but I’m just going off the letter you sent for the Yowl.
