New to me 05 trx450r project

Well it is official. I am a new owner of a 05 trx450r. It needs alot of love. But i traded 400ex parts for it. So no complaints. As of rightnow the engine is draining the water out of it. It sat outside with no valve cover on it. To my absolute astonishment the swing arm bolt came right out. Cylinder is toast and so is the rod by the feel of it. But its almost complete. Missing just a few odds and ends. Now for the crazy. It came with a second frame that is gusseted and powdercoated. And a subframe to match. I will post some pictures to my garage as i did for my winter rebuild. Stay tuned!

Not entirely sure what caused this. Appears they "torqued" the head nuts without the thick washers and forced the stud deeper? Next picture will show you where the piece of cast went and got wedged.....at some point.

To all the 450 guys. What am i missing here? The counter shaft dosnt even touch the seal? It was obveously leaking from there no doubt. But i cant seem to figure out what is missing...fsm dosnt show anything specific. Did they use the wrong seal maybe?
