750 Workshop manual
Posted: Tue Mar 15, 2011 4:31 am
I am hoping that someone on here may be able to help. My local Ducati dealer has just had delivered to them a very early 750GT on Amal carbs and steel inlet manifolds! Needless to say they haven't got any manuals!
I have lent them my parts manual off this site and the Haynes manual that I have, but we are worried that there may be differences.
As it hasn't run in years, the engine needs to come apart to be checked and cleaned out - can anyone help with a factory workshop[ manual?

Bet that surprised them! Maybe a Cucciolo next week...

I've got a copy on a CD, but it's stored as 78 separate pages of HTML. Hopefully, I've just e-mailed it all to you ...

Chris,The factory manual is little more than a picture book showing Mr. Hands holding wrenches and giving order of assembly etc. It doesn't go into the specifics of setting up the bevel shimming other than saying the ground areas of the gearsets should match up evenly.I think the singles book provides that info in more depth[I haven't seen one in years].The majority of the bottom end is the same as the early sq. case and that manual is much more informative.
As for the carbs,The owners manual I have lists the AMAL jetting specs as
Right R930/76, atomizer 106,diffuser[slide?] 30,main jet 190, idle jet 25,and needle position 2nd notch.
The left carb is listed as a 930/77 with the same jetting
Hope this helps, Bill

let them use the manual for the 860 (as found on Bevelheaven) for most of the bottom part, with the parts lists of 750 and 860 on the side to check for differences.
Shim the gearbox without the crankshaft so you can see what's happening.
Tricky bit is setting the lower bevels for the camshaft but the same method can be followed : be sure that the dots align and then check the surfaces that are grinded, you find them when you turn the engine a bit further or backwards.
These surfaces should be flat.
Remember that a bit loose is better then too tight.
THEN let them check the teeth align well with engineers blue as prscribed in the manuals.
No big deal, except most modern Ducati mechanics don't know what engineers blue is.
