Hello everyone!
I've picked up a used 576XP for what seemed low price.
However I found out that It has an aftermarket cylinder and the clutch side bearing rotate in the pocket.

While I was opening It,the little tab that set the bearing depth on the clutch side broke off,I've found It very worn by the bearing rotating against It,maybe that's why It was so brittle and It cracked easily while opening It (required 3-4 medium tap with copper hammer).

I understand that this only held the bearing for being settled too much inside the pocket,since It already rotates inside,can I use some green bearing locker to set It in Place? Will It work?
Picture of the damage 🙁

I look at it this way, since it is already broken, can't hurt to mess with it and see if you can come up with a fix, especially if you are careful with how much money you throw at it.

Yes,I was thinking of start with the 2 bearings and gasket,if I can lock the bearing and close the crankcase,an aftermarket top end will suffice until It grenade again 😄
Spending just the essential to make It work,maybe 150$ total
