Motor ended up having to come out any ways. The thrust bearing and crank were not in as good of shape as I hoped and the cam bearings were trashed.

It also didnít appear to have any locktite on them, but the bevel on the retainer is an oblong shape vs the normal bevel shape on the bolts. I am assuming it locked them in there like previously suggested. Thanks for all the advice fellas!

Congrats on getting through a pain in the ass task, That should not have even been anywhere near the pain in the ass, that it turned out to be.
