It only needs to clear the driven gear on the end of the alternator.  Just clip it off with a cutoff wheel in a die grinder and get it relatively flush. There is a reasonable amount of clearance behind the gear and you can easily check it visually. It's not necessary to go to all the trouble to set up a mill cutter.

Figured a quick update was in order. Not a lot of progress on the engine, but all the parts are in. And that pesky shaft/nub is no longer in the way.

Most of last weekend was spent at NJMP watching the super bikes play in the rain. Interestingly 3 of the last 4 MotoAmerica races in NJ were in the wet. The USCRA guys were also in attendance, and like last year It was fun watching them go round.

I did manage to find a little time between rain drops on Friday to put the final coat of clear on. Ended up going with white. I think it looks rather nice with the big Bridgestone markings.

The under lying color is your standard Rustoleum. With a top coat of USC 2K high gloss clear. Very impressed with how this went on. It’s a 2 part clear, you “pop” a button on the bottom of the can shake for 2 min, and spray. And it’s full proof - I hope.
