Remove and Install Timing Gears

Postby Bill Powell » Wed Aug 17, 2011 12:57 pm



I have a couple of questions.

I'm changing my water pump in my 1981 GL1100 Interstate. Of course I'm following WingMan's "How To" instructions every step of the way. I purchased a set of crome timing belt covers and I wanted to replace them while I had this much of the bike apart. I removed the old front covers and thinking of the difficulty in removing the belts and gear to install the new crome rear timing gear covers. Is there tricks or problems with removing the gear that I should be aware of?? I tried to study as much as I can and know that each gear should be lined up with it's respective marks and T-1 at the top of the motor veiwing window.

Is it simply removing the gear along with the key?? Is there a specific torque to re-install?? forward or reverse threads??

Thanks for the info. The motor was running pretty rough. A loud knocking noice on the right side at almost idle. Now I know why. It looks like the previouse owner off set the right bank by one tooth. I'm hoping that properly adjusting the gears to the correct position will improve the engine sound and no seriouse damage has been made from this change.

Thanks again, this is a great help in the rebuild of this bike.
