Not that I know of. Crank "end play" is ENGINE based ...NOT transaxle gauged. Understand too, that "crank end play" ("run out" ) CAN'T be gauged unless and UNTILL the flywheel is INSTALLED on the engine and the "gland nut" torqued to about 214 foot pounds. You adjust this end play by adding or subtracting the shim washers. If it was in specs, it should be the same as it was prior to messing with engine. Good luck. Peace.

Kiddo, you'll need the proper adapter between the engine and the "New" transmission.. Research again and if you don't there will be more questions from you and I am not available 24 hrs a day...Do your home works first!

no need to adjust crank end play you do this only when you split the case and install new crank shaft.also remember to torque the flywheel bolt to 250 ft ponds or the bolt will come lose and trash your crankshaft (been there done that once)
