Removal of the Guzzi V65 Lario Gear box

I suspect that a bearing has collapsed in the gearbox and I will need to remove it for repairs. It looks a bit daunting. Can someone tell me the proper removal procedure please?

Can the imput shaft on a 2005 mazda e2000 manual van be removed from the bell housing side or do i have to dismantle the entire gearbox as i need to replace its bearing ?

normally ---no
as the dog teeth for 4th gear hit the large first gear on the counter shaft
if that bearing needs replacing, there will be metal bits in all of the other bearings so a quality repair is a box dismantle and wash out
quality practice recognizes that one bearing failure , all bearings are close to failure as well
however if you can get to a decent bearing puller there is one that on the leg ends there are 1/2 balls formed on the ends
you have to remove the cage and these ends fit in and when turned to fit the puller bridge , lock into the grooves and you can pull the bearing that way
replacing would be by heating the new bearing in oil and sliding it back into place on the shaft while the shaft is in place in the box
after removing the bearing , the shaft can come out but to do so will drop the spigot needle roller bearings into the bottom of the box and it has to back in place as fitting the bearing before installing means that the dog teeth will not fit over the counter shaft gear

Moto Guzzi 2001 California Neutral light not working Please refer to additional detail

Hi, Frank I would have to agree on your diagnosis and theory and here's what I would do:
1. Remove the neutral switch and using smoke and mirrors especially mirrors, if necessary, shine a flashlight in the hole to view the detent/lug situation.
2. If that looks ok then spray the sh*t out of the neutral switch with carb cleaner, while depressing the spring loaded plunger 3-4 times then blow dry with compressed air.
3. If that doesn't work buy a new switch.

Gear selection difficult nissan primastar

It's a bit of an common problem with this gear box the forward backwards selector arm ( the T shaped one on the left when viewed from the top) has an oil seal that is prone to failure allowing water to penetrate in to the gearbox. If left unchecked the selector bearing will eventually collapse making it impossible to get any gear. A further problem that can happen is that the main bearing in the box will also suffer from the presence of the water. Best way to check is to drain the oil from the box thru the plug on the bottom if the diff if it come out even slightly milky then the selector oil seal has failed only solution is to drop the box out and have the selector turret beaeing changed buy a recon specialist and have them check the main bearings for water damage too

1988 Moto Guzzi V 65 Lario will not start

Hi, Jondoncam411 and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. The fuel tank has old dead gas.
3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.
7. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
8. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
9. Fuel line to carburetor or throttle body pinched, kinked or blocked.
10. Carburetor float stuck.
11. Fuel injectors clogged.
12. Fuel injectors stuck open.
13. Quick disconnect check ball stuck.
14. Compression below 75 PSI.
15. A stuck-bent-burnt valve.
16. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a cursory reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
17. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
18. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
19. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections are loose or connected to the wrong cylinders.
20. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or MAP, CMP, CKP, O2, TPS, ETP, IAC sensors.
21. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
22. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
23. Faulty or corroded run/stop switch.
24. Tilt sensor needs a reset.
25. Security system not disarming alarm needs a reset.
26. Check for engine trouble codes.

Engine starts but trans wont go

Hi, if the gearbox is a manual shift then the chances are that the clutch has gone or even the thrust bearing operating the clutch could have collapsed causing the problem your having.

If your gear box is an auto box then this would more than certanly mean that the gear box needs replacing as they are to expensive to repair your cheapest option would be to exchange yours for a reconditioned box.

Let me know what type of box you have then i can assist you further as it could be that the master or slave cylinder has gone on the clutch pedal if your gear box is manual type so let me know then i can assist you further ok
