REMOVING TIMING GEARS (SIDE VALVE ENGINE)

case. Take out cap screws and remove nut from one end of each stud. Three of these studs, the one at top between cylinders and two at bottom, are a tight fit and will have to be driven out with a drift of somewhat smaller diameter than studs. With all studs and screws removed, crankcases can be separated. If they don't come apart freely, tap mounting lugs, using a block of wood and a hammer. Main bearing parts shown in Illus. 63 are now exposed.

10. Disassemble flywheels: Remove lock washer and nut from left end of crank pin. Tilt flywheel assembly on right flywheel and strike rim of left wheel with soft hammer about 90° away from pin. One or two sharp blows will usually loosen wheel. Do not strike wheel on its side, as doing so might either break flywheel or damage the tapered hole. With flywheels apart, connecting rods and roller bearing assembly can be -removed from crank pin. Note that female (forked) rod is for the rear cylinder and male (single end) rod is for the front cylinder.

In connection with a complete overhaul, where all main bearings as well as connecting rod lower bearings are to be refitted, remove all shafts from flywheels. When crank pin is removed from right flywheel, it will be noted that this end of pin is a taper fit in flywheel, the same as the other end, but in addition is keyed. The purpose of this key is to locate the drilled oil passage in crank pin so that when wheels are assembled it will register exactly with drilled oil passage in right flywheel.
