I am considering how to handle getting the cotter pin in from the underside on the shifter lever now that the engine, trans, swingarm, and rear fender are in place.

Is it possible to unbolt the trans flange from the swingarm, remove the rear engine-to-frame through bolt, then pivot the engine upwards enough to allow the cotter pin to be inserted?

There are other attachments

There are other attachments to consider. There's a top engine mount bracket. Plus the mufflers are going to interfere, so they would likely need to be removed...not sure about the headers.

Sorry, I should mention this

Sorry, I should mention this is a an ongoing rebuild just started, so the only parts connected are the engine and trans to frame, trans to driveshaft, and the rear fender is in place as is the rear suspension and fender.

Pinch bolt for shifter

Yes
Just loosing the front engine mounting bolt and remove the upper engine support and their is enough room to tip the rear of the engine upward to insert the bolt to secure the shift lever (nut is on top)

I agree

I agree. I did the exact thing. Front and top engine mounts. Tip the engine forward. Easy fix.
