The thread is RH, loosen the nut un till its just flush with the top of the crank threads, use an soft metal drift, copper, allly, brass etc.
hold the fly wheel and strike the top of the nut with the drift it will pop the fly wheel off. you may need a hand. if it wont come off use a screw driver under the fly wheel and pry it up when you strike the nut..Dont hit the nut /shaft without the soft will destroy the shaft.

the clutch thread is LH..

Dont split the cases! the bolts that hold the cover/bar on are square heads that sometimes fall back into the bar oil reservoir.Use an extending handle magnet to go thru the bar oil fill hole & retrieve it and reinsert it with same magnet. A 30 second job. I just did exactly what you did. got as far as the flywheel and realized what I had missed . DOH!!

Do i need to remove engine studs on 1989 GSXR 1100 to split the crank case?

Usully, studs are simply bolts that have removable nuts on them. You should not have to remove the studs to split the case.

How to change the crank case gasket briggs 23hp

Yes you need to drain the oil, turn the engine onto its flywheel, remove all the crankcase screws, clean the exposed crank to remove any rust or dirt, now gentlty ease the base off, it should come away with the oil pump gear.

I have a Husqvarna 44 chain saw,s/n 5031839 and need the stud that actually holds the chain var and cover on.Any help would be great.Just getting the year the saw was made would be helpful.Thanks in...

The stud never changed through production, it is part no. 501454301 should be available through your local dealer, or on the web, it can be fitted without splitting the crankcase, with some thin wall tubing and pulling through the oil filler hole.

Only will run when squirting gas in carburator.I have replaced carb plug air cleaner end fuel filter.Taken to repair shop,they say something internal.SO what?

Could be a massive air leak, possibly the crank seal has fallen out, or the cylinder base gasket has blown out, remove the flywheel and check the crank seal behind, remove the clutch, sprocket and oil pump and inspect the crank seal on this side,if they have fallen out, or are very wet, replace them, there are kits available to blank off the inlet and exhaust so as to put a pressure into the crankcase to quickly show where the leak is.

I have a husqvarna chainsaw 41(1994-05) is what the model number is showing the carb has been rebiult new gasgets it has fire but will not run can u help

The 41 was quite prone to blowing the crank seal on the flywheel side, remove the flywheel and check, at the same time check the flywheel key has not sheared, behind the carb fixing plate is a rubber induction tube, make sure this has not split, als check the impulse seal underneath the induction tube.

Ive removed the cover on the crankcase side in order to change the chain itself. The cover is held in place by two studs. I cleaned the crankcase and then went to fit the chain assmebly and cover back on....

I really can't see the studs falling inside but it sure could drop out. But to make sure and satisfy your curiosity take your saw and shake it, or turn it upside down then right side up and listen for noise to see if it could be inside your saw. Sometimes when you remove the nuts the stud comes with it and you don't think too much of it. I have done that myself. I hope this helps, thanks.

How too replace connecting rod on a ttr 125l. I have a 2001 ttr 125 with a seized conn big bearing. and I would like to know the proper way of splitting the crank too replace it

The top end comes off then the left and right side covers, flywheel, clutch and shift shaft. Now a case splitter is used to split the center case halves. To replace the bearing you will need a hydraulic press to disassemble and reassemble the crank halves. If the bearing is seized you should replace the bearing, crank pin and the connecting rod. The crank must be realigned using twin dial gages. Personally, I suggest a new crank assembly be purchased from ( $241 ). I would replace the crank end bearings at the same time and also the sprocket shaft outer bearing and seal. Please rate my answer.

I need to know how to dis/reassemble a 1974 DT 360?

A service manual ( if you can find one ) is what you need. The second thing you need is repair parts. They are pretty hard to find. Babbitt's, a well known distributor, only has parts left in stock for the top end. Go to their website,
and you can see what is left. There's also a diagram of the crankcase center halves. If you can't get the repair parts, spending hours doing an engine teardown is fruitless.

The teardown will require a flywheel puller, a case splitter, an impact driver, and a torque wrench (somewhat optional). Disassemble the top end then remove the left and right side case covers. Remove the flywheel and related electrics, the clutch, crankshaft drive gear, oil pump, kick starter, shift shaft assembly, shift drum end cap and index pins. Now remove the screws on the center case and you can then split the case. This gives you access to replace shift forks, gears, and bearings. Note that crank seals can be replaced without splitting the case.

I am not trying to be a smart *** here, but re-assembly is just the reverse of dis-assembly. This is why a manual would help. Another potential source for parts is to Google motorcycle salvage yamaha .
The normal things you would need to replace inside the center case would be bent shift forks (if shifting is the problem), busted gears, crank bearings and seals, and sprocket shaft bearing and seal. All else can be replaced by removing just the side covers.

Timeing a yamaha 175 enduro

Without the year of the bike I am hampered. Lets assume it is an older bike and has a set of ignition points and not a CDI model.
Pull the cover off the shifter side of the engine. Remove the spark plug then turn the flywheel so you can see the points. Oil on them? Dirt, or rust? Next check the main bearing. Do not rotate the flywheel but instead hold the flywheel firmly and lift it up and down, left and right. Was there any movement or was the flywheel rock solid?
I am willing to bet that the points were dirty and there was a lot of play in the crank bearings. If so, you will need new crank bearings and seals plus new points and condenser. The engine needs to tear down into about 75 parts in order to replace the bearings. The job requires some special tools to remove the flywheel and clutch, plus a crankcase separator the split the gearbox.
This is not a job for the beginner. I suggest you have the shop do the work and also that you spring for 3 more bearings and seals plus a fresh cylinder bore, new piston and rings and a new spark plug. You now have a brand new engine that should run well and last for many years. Please rate this solution. Thanks
