Might be worth checking this dimension just in case as there is one in that area.

Hi Simonic
that "little fellow" can come from a few different places: the pin that keeps the kickstarter shaft in place, one of the five pins of the cranckshaft, one of the pins that keeps the cages of the roller bearings of the input or the output shaft in place.
These are all situated in the upper cranckcase. If one of them dropped out, take a dowel, place it on the side of the gap where the pin should be and give a gentle tap on the dowel with a hammer. Put the pin back in the hole afterwards and make sure it stays out about 5 mm.
As far as the broken output shaft is concerned: don't mind, it's common. It's one of the weak spots of the ST.
If you can find a complete shaft, replace the one in your engine, if not, find someone who can work with a lathe.
Let him drill a hole in the shaft, make a thread in it (M10) and use an M10 allen bolt to secure the coupling of the drive shaft. (Take a look at how it's done in one of my previous projects; I think there's a picture)
Your ST will also work without the nut in place. The coupling is held in place by the strong spring.
Good luck!

Hi Simonic
do you have the dimensions of the "little fellow"?
If it comes out of the front bevel gear case it might be the little pin to hold the drive schaft on the front bevel gear case. It all depends upon the dimensions and in this case: size matters! If it's very small you have an identification of your "little fellow" if not, keep searching.

Hi Simonic
the pin that connects the propellershaft to the front bevel gear case measures: 6 mm long and has a diameter of 4 mm.
If it's this one, DON'T loose it, I'm not sure if you can stil buy it.

I had a trip to my engine builers last week. He was partly thru doing the grinding in of the valves and a little porting. While he is finishing this off i've brought the crankcases home to paint.
I'm going for a stock look in black.
So,gentlemen.
What should i use for paint?
I'm able to spray thru a gun as well as use a rattle can and i have facilities to cure.
Thank You

Simoniz / Sperex Tough black satin or Wurth satin black is the closest to the stock finish you will get and can be either cured in use or baked on.
Once cured they are both fuel and heat resistant and last for years.
