Question about Garden
Engine is on a Craftsmen Yard Vac.Removed base plate to replace gasket and the camshaft fell out.I see a mark on the cam gear but not on crank or crank gear.I Need to know proper alignment ,also on the bottom of the camshaft there is a plastic "banjo" shaped piece with a steel rod with ball end on it,It appears to be there to pump oil thru the camshaft,where it slides over the cam one side is tapered in,the other flat,which side goes toward the base plate? Lastly, any special alignment for the governor gear?
The banjo part is the pump - this should be a two piece unit - you will see a cutout in the base plate where the ball end fits into - by tipping the engine upside down while installing base plate you can manuver the ball into place - as far as the crank gear mark one tooth may look different then the rest or have a line on it . it has to be there also as far as the tapered banjo part it realy doesnt matter which way the taper faces
