What didja find when ya got her open?
Gonna 'operate' this Sunday cuming.
I haven't got an air impact wrench, so I was wondering 'if' its the compensator sprog nut thats loose, after I tighten the nut up as tight as I can get it with what I've got,.......'Might' I get away with driving about 4 or 500 yards to the nearest auto shop and get them to 'impact' the shite out of it, bearing in mind there'll be no primary cover, hence no oil in it? (clutch plates an all that)
and I'm a skinny fuk and pushing it would snap me in two!

In my manual,it says you need a primary drive locking tool.(HD-41214)
If you can get a breaker bar, it'll make things a lot easier. Manual also says that the tq spec on the comp nut should be 150-165 ft lbs. (203.4-223.7 Nm) I think if you can get that bar, (borrow one) a good meter should do it, you can pull till you pop a vein and it should be ok. BTW , over here there are auto shops that will rent out tools or let you take them if you leave a deposit. Make some calls in your area to see if they have a tq wrench that will do the job.

No problem fmich!!! I was wondering how much 'over' might be 'safe' to go with the torque anyway. Thanks for the heads up.

Well it looks like I didn't tell you anything you didn't already know. I just read the other thread. {shrug} At least you know how to tackle it this time. It should go a lot faster. :rolleyes:

Clean the threads of the compensator nut and shaft to get all the oil off before you use the Loc Tight and the stuff will hold better. I used rubbing alcohol to clean mine. I also made a primary locking tool out of a piece of Red Oak (it's real hard) wood. 2 inches by 2 inches and about 3 inches long. Use a saw and cut 1/4inch stair steps on one end of the wood and jam that between the chain and the sprocket. I used the same piece of wood two different times and it's still in good shape.
