    Put back in the rotor and tighten the bolts fully on the non drive side with no shims. Turn the head so drive side is at top and if rotor isnt dead square with motor fit one or multiple shims as required to each required bolt

    Do as @Greenhorn says, take your time & get it right, get it wrong & there is a good chance the motor shaft will snap off, no other option than a new motor then.
    Had ours out earlier this week as needed new drive gears, then got a set of bearings & end plates while it was out & new front rubber. End plates turned out to be thicker so had to grind the hole mounts & shim back up to suit, expensive but should sort it for a while......I hope :).

    Obviously the above manual is the copyright of Mcconnel, I doubt they'd mind me posting them up as a customer helping a fellow customer, if they are bothered by this then I'll delete them. For reference the part number for the 1.2 multicut flail head manual is 41571.29 and I'm sure easily obtained from any Mcconnel dealer.
