Hi all - a rare poster on here so hi!!

i have a D7 De-luxe which I have had on the market but not sold, partly I beleive because it needs a new gear lever return Spring . So, to be able to create space in the garage for new project reckon I will bite the bullet and open up the cases to replace the spring. Is there a post somewhere on here detailing the procedure or could someone butter point it for me?

 

cheers Bryan

Just found some answers in "Technical" !!

i don't need to remove the clutch before splitting the cases my next qu is therefore can the whole clutch side be left in situ - can I split the cases by just removing the flywheel side??

If you look here, you can see the return spring just to the rear of the clutch drum. You can get at it if you remove the primary drive cover and it is also possible to replace it without removing anything else if you have prehensile fingers (and a bit of patience). You may even find it has just slipped off it's mount.

gear lever return Spring !

D7 has a crankcase screw behind the clutch, unless it had not been replaced by a previous owner, top right behind the clutch basket
you will need a clutch compressor tool and a flywheel removal tool
it would also be a good idea to replace the crank oil seals while you have the engine apart
perhaps Hynes manual would be a good idea

Deliberate mistakes we all make them including on the page you linked to and my own embarassed

incidentally although if im going to split the crankcases I prefer to strip everything out and check it
you can leave the clutch basket in place but to stop the hassle of the kickstart spring and its protector plate falling out ( having removed the screw on <D7 ) I put the primary case back on and then use a ½ rod to push out the gear change shaft which then holds the kickstart and spring in place

Thanks for the tips!!

so - after head and barrel/piston, if I remove the flywheel assembly and oil seal on that side can I split without taking the primary/clutch side apart at all (other than the hidden screw!)? Cheers B
