CRANKSHAFT, MAIN BEARINGS, FLYWHEEL & CRANKCASE
Remove the pilot bearing from the flywheel (if
equipped). After cleaning inspect it for wear and
If the bearing is still serviceable lubricate it
with clean engine oil and reinstall it.
If the bearing has considerable service,
Repair the Flywheel and Ring Gear as follows:
Grind the flywheel as required. The maximum
allowance for removal is 1.6 mm (1/16 in.).
It is not necessary to remove all grooves or
DO NOT remove more surface material
than specified. Otherwise interference of
the driven member hub with the clutch pilot
bearing in the flywheel will result.
Remove the broken ring gear from the flywheel
by heating the gear with a torch to expand it.
Then drive gear from the flywheel.
3.Install a new ring gear as follows:
Heat the gear to 260° 290°C (500° 550F)
Place the hot gear onto the flywheel.
The chamfered edge of the ring gear l.D.
