Installing the Primary Drive Assembly

Take picts of the engine’s left side.

Bolt on the primary drive gear assembly, including its key, pickup coil rotor, and spacer washer, but do not torque the bolt yet.

 

Installing the Oil Pump Driven Gear Assembly

Install the oil pump driven gear assembly, including the brass oil-delivery tube. Remember to include the three, little O-rings for the oil-delivery tube. See photo above.

 

Installing the Shift Shaft Assembly

Next, install the shift shaft assembly.

Tip: I forgot to install the shift shaft assembly until after my clutch was completely in (Not one of my better moments). But I was able to get the shift shaft assembly installed without having to take the clutch back out. To do this, I used a little wire-tie on the shift shaft, to pull the lever clear. Then I just snipped off the wire-tie once the shift-shaft was in. See photo below.
