The shank bolt goes through the starter the end of the starter that fits into the crank is taperd they all so use glue to keep it from spinning on the crank so if the shank bolt gets twisted off then all you have is the press/glue holding it together and the shaft of the shank bolt holding it center it might hold forever then again the glue can let go and it will fall apart and you won't be able to start the bike
The Chinese use soft steal to make the bolts for these things they shouldn't be drill started ( like you can get away with on Stihl and Brigs stuff)
Unfortunately parts are starting to get scarce and we really do need member's to start parting out engines that are worn out or not wanted instead of throwing them in a box to be forgotten about or in the trash...
