Post by 75860GTDUCK »

I am not really sure how to get the shaft and gears out of the tube.I have the timing gears and cam out.Can anyone give me an idea on how to do this.In the workshop manual looks as thou the lower bevel gear screws off?.Thanks to all responses.

After you take the cylinder heads off the bevel shaft tubes will readily pull out of the upper bevel gear housing. They are just a slight friction fit.

really you do not need to take ANYTHING off the heads,........ Just remove carbies and exhaust, remove the 4 nuts that hold the head on and lift the heads off. It is easiest if you first line up all the timing marks and whatever you do do NOT spin the cams after removing the heads. THen slide out the bevel tube from the top or bottom, wherever it happens to stay, replace tube Orings, slide in the new tubes and replace the cyl to head orings and then slip the head back on. Voila.
