Today removed generator, checked for gear damage - none. Drained oil and took off side cover. No gear train damage. Flywheels still binding. Rollo came over to help. Stripped everything off and removed case from frame. Pulled off right side -still binding. We talked about pulled flywheels out of left side and I called Bruce Palmer for help. During the course of his telling us about special tools to pull compensator pully shaft assembly, I let him listen to the scrubbing noise over the phone. He said it sounded like something dragging on aluminum. That meant flywheel against left case. Then---I had an epiphany. Got a whrench and removed the timing plug from the left case. NO MORE DRAGGING. I had put in an incorrect, too long plug. No it's going to be an exercise in how fast one can tear down a motor to the flywheels and then put it all back together. Great lesson in what to check first.
