:D did u mark the rotor button position before u pulled it out??? u need to put it back in the same spot as before. When ure putting it back in not only do u have to line the rotor up but u have to make sure the oil pump drive lines up in the bottom of dizzy. The oil pump drive isnt lining up with bottom of dizzy thats why it wont go all the way in. Sometimes can be a pain but keep trying it will go in eventually. :oops:

As your putting it in, twist it, cause they are helical gears.

Also, push down on the dizzy, when turn the crank by hand . it will slot in as soon as the gears start to move.

if that fails, slowly tighten the dizzy lock nut while turning the crank, they can be a very very tight fit sometimes.
