Not factory, likely an engine builders initials or previous owner initials.

My knuckle engine has the previous owners name stamped in the side of the flywheel.

Could it be a machinist or inspector stamp for the final sizing of the tapers? In Hydra’s motor B did the crank pin right side and K did the pinion shaft hole. Then O did the sprocket hole. In the other photo, K did both shaft holes.

No stamp for the non-keyed left crankpin hole?

Just guessing

I don't know what BK represents but it’s stamped on top of two H-D Pan flywheels I have. Both have MOCASCO on them as well as an MCC logo indicating they were produced by Motor Castings Company. One has casting number 150 40 and the other casting number looks like 23923-56.
