Shining a light down the mainshaft oil feed and looking down the sludgeplug hole I can see through to the oilfeed hole in the mainshaft and can see a full circle of light so it looks as though the hole / mainshaft is lined up correctly.
So my question is: is the key for the timing side half the depth of the flywheel keyway and half the height?
John Nash posted some mainshaft images in this post back in 2011 but they do not show the key in question

If your reading this John and you can have a look that would be great.
I do not want to disturb the mainshaft if what I have is normal. My view is that the key is in place, the oilway appears to line up correctly and the shaft is being held firmly in place by the taper.
