    I disassembled a 49cc 2 stroke engine in order to replace a crankshaft seal...that done, now I find the bucking bar sticks out so far that the clutch rod cover can't be installed and work properly....I know their is steel ball bearing that goes behind the bar, I've checked to make sure there was not two in the shaft, as I don't remember taking it out....can the engine be used without the ball bearing...or should I grind off some of the bar.....I just don't know why this happened.....

    Do a search. There are many others that had the same problem. You've installed something incorrectly. Don't cut it.

    Good Luck,

    Sounds like some trapped air, the heavy grease you used [ ? ] to lube ball can often trap air, and defy re-assembly. Pull the bucking bar out,
    stick a wire, or long nail in there to fully seat ball against clutch crown. Now bucking bar should go all the way in.
