  • Installs easily?

    Bought a new cover for my bike, ad says it installs easily. However, after receiving it, I am doubtful that's the case. I'm not even sure of the correct nomenclature, it's the little circular cover that would be the points cover if it were a H-D with points. Do I have to remove the whole cam cover to do this?

    Remove cover and on the inside the round piece unbolts (if it's the one I am thinking of). I also think it has a gasket so get one ahead of time (or use permatex ultra grey I've done that before and works well)

      If it's like the one on the left side of the engine, you have to take the larger cover that it is mounted to off first and then you will see that the smaller cover is bolted from the inside of the larger cover.

        the right side cover? where timing gears are?, I fashioned a gasket last week. while waiting for delivery. auto stores have roll gasket material. i already had some. iron it flat, self drilling screw it to flat wood, outline in pencil. drill all holes with correct drill size, put 2 more screws in 2 different holes, take first 2 screws and drill thoseholes . then take it off and use a SHARP blade. oh, and there are 2 alignment pegs, u wont need those until the real gasket arrives, , just pull them out with a nipper and bag them

            Thanks for the diagram Mort, and thanks tto everyone else who responded. Is there any little springs or any shit that's gonna come flying out of there when I pull this cover? Is any oil gonna pour out of there?

                Cover 2 (#17) unbolts easily without removing cover 1 (#1)

                  I believe he’s replacing #41. #39 has to come off to get to the two bolts that hold it.

                    Yes #41 is it. I ordered the gasket today.

                  Shit. That’d be an old shovel head if it had points and condenser. .

                  Update on that homemade gasket, I removed it again to do the front cylinder ,and the outline imprint of the engine case is now inscribed on the gasket so that makes it really easy to cut the inside of the homemade gasket.

                      I assume #42 in the diagram is some sort of vibration dampener?
