Recommended Posts

HI ALL.
TO REMOVE A STAG CAMSHAFT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SERVICE MANUAL, IS THERE ANY KNOWN PROBLEMS WITH THIS EXERCISE AS THE BRACKET AND SINGLE BOLT TO SECURE THE SHAFT CHAIN GEAR SEEMS A LITTLE INADEQUATE TO SUPPORT THE GEAR AND CHAIN TENSION.

Before you remove the sprocket bolts and locking tabs stuff some rag down the timing case. If you accidentally drop a bolt or washer it will go straight into the sump, so stuffing the hole with a rag gives you a sporting chance of recovering it easily.

I'll second that, once the bolt drops into the job becomes a nightmare. Removing the sump involves taking out the front cross member, can you tell what i did wrong!

FFS don't drop the bolt it cost me nearly a month out last summer.,
