Just hope that you don't have a big end like the BSA's. there are not bolts to take the big end apart, you have to split the crankshaft, which is in two pieces connected by the big end bearing shaft and is a press fit. I still have to do mine and I am not looking forward to it.

The stripped stud in the base can be helicoiled, though unless you have a workshop, it may be best to have it done by a specialist as any error may cause the stud to not line up with the base of the barrel.....
