Crankshaft with Connecting Rods R/R


  1. Disassemble crankcase (41 En).
  2. Withdraw camshaft.
  3. Remove crankshaft with connecting rods.
  4. Mark insert of Bearing 2 and 3.


Installation is accomplished by noting the following points:
  1. Lightly bevel bearing seat edges at the crankcase joint to prevent gouging as a result of bearing preload upon reassembly of crankcase,
  2. Check dowel pin in Bearing 1 for firm seating.
  3. Oil passages in crankshaft journals and bearings must not have sharp edges in evidence.
  4. Install in crankcase insert halves of Bearing 2 and 3.
  5. Place insert of Bearing 1 on crankshaft journal so that the off-centered dowel pin bore is closest to the flywheel side.
  6. Insert crankshaft.
  7. Note timing marks when installing camshaft.
