Is it necessary to remove the radiator?

No. Just remove the linkages from the throttle lever and the cross arm to the carb. Take out the bolts back the mag away from the gear and rotate the mag one tooth backwards. This is assuming the posted picture was taken at number 1TDC. I have done it many times.

I've done a few as Cecil suggested. The governor cross shaft has a support bracket, held to the front of the engine with 2 bolts, those need to be removed. The procedure can be done in about 1/2 hour.

That's why there are several of us here, Cecil! I often forget little details (or big ones) as well.

We should have warned you about that tiny key! You're not the first to drop it, glad you were lucky enough to find it!
