I reuse 11mm flywheel bolts all the time but not 10mm bolts.
What makes you think the top end isn't low time? I don't see anything in the photos?
Do not use a drill and insert sheet metal screws to take that RMS out. I have seen a lot of cases F'ed up for people doing that! Plus there is absolutely no need for it! Go down to Kragens and get a seal puller. $10. Shorten the handle if you need to. Use the seal iteslf as a fulcrum point. Or just the right board. It will come right out. I worked with a numnut that put superglue on them. If they are super stuck, a little heat will help. Now you can use the same puller to better pull out tons of seals! I have three or four of them modified in different ways to pull different seals. They are worth their weight in gold!
How does the cam sprocket look? Although I have never seen a simplex cam sprocket wear, I have seen a number of duplex cam sprockets worn out.
