Remove the two chain housing stud nuts attaching starter housing to chain guard. Remove wires connected to starter solenoid terminals. Pull inner chain housing loose from mainshaft using Puller, Part No. 95960-41 A, which has four screws to fit tapped holes in chain housing. Care must be taken to be sure housing moves out squarely as front end is snug fit on shoulder of crankcase. As housing is pulled out, shake starter assembly shaft to free it from gear in starter motor housing. Remove chain oiler hose at oil pump. Remove chain housing oil return hose at rear of chain quard and vent host at T-con-nection and move housing away. On FX, remove foot shifter lever linkage from chain housing and shifter pawl lever on transmission cover. Remove battery carrier bracket from right side of transmission.

Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly with the following exceptions:

The four nuts securing the transmission to mounting plate as well as the bolt which secures transmission to frame support bracket should be left loose to facilitate easy alignment of the chain housing with engine crankcase and transmission bolts.

Primary chain case bolts on engine and transmission should be tightened evenly to 18 to 22 ft-lbs torque so housing does not bind on transmission mainshaft or shoulder on engine crankcase. Final tightening should start at three bolts at engine crankcase, then four bolts at transmission then four base mounting nuts and bolts securing transmission to chassis bracket.
