Reposition case on press table and press out outer races (12 and 14) and bearing spacer (13) from case (15) using Sprocket Shaft Bearing Outer Race Press Plug, Part No. 97194-57 (Fig. 3E-6).

If flywheels are to be disassembled, grip pinion shaft in vise and pull bearing from sprocket shaft using the Bearing Puller Part No. 96015-56. Place hooked ends of puller halves behind bearing and hold collar over puller halves. Engage puller screw cross in puller slots and pull bearing off by tightening puller screw against sprocket shaft center as shown in Fig.

3E-7. Keep bearings (9 and 16) in a set with proper bearing outer races (12 and 14).


Grip pinion shaft in copper covered vise jaws so shafts are in vertical position. Insert a rod about 5 in. long and 1/2 in. in diameter through holes in flywheels to keep them from turning. Remove lock plate screw (1), lock plate (2) and crank pin nut (3). Strike left flywheel with soft metal mallet at about 90 degrees from crank pin hole on wheel periphery to loosen. Lift left flywheel (4) off crank pin.

Hold down bearing assembly with a short length of pipe or tubing so connecting rods (5) may be slipped off bearings. Remove bearings (6). Hold together in set until bearings are washed and refitted to crank pin.

Remove lock plate screw (7), lock plate (8) and gear shaft nut (9). Tap pinion shaft (11) out of flywheel (10). Remove key~(12) from shaft.

Clamp crank pin in vise. Remove lock plate screw (13), lock plate (14) and crank pin lock nut (15). Tap crank pin (16) out of flywheel and remove key (17).

Grip sprocket shaft in vise and remove lock plate screw (18), lock plate (19) and sprocket shaft lock nut (20). Remove sprocket shaft (21) by tapping it out of flywheel, and remove key (22).
