Crank pulley bolt..

Postby heholdem » Sun Mar 15, 2015 5:10 pm



I'm starting to do an alternator conversion on my '81 as the stator is nearing the end of its life. Can anyone tell me the direction the crank pulley bolt needs to turn in order to remove it? I set to TDC, rotated 90, held the crank bolt on the stator end in positions with a wrench, and have tried both directions clockwise and counter-clockwise on the crank bolt on the pulley end and have not been able to get it to break free yet. I just need to know which way to turn it to get it off before I put anymore force on it and have not been able to find anything pointing me in the right direction, pun intended.

Thanks Jake

Its a regular right hand thread. So turn it counter clockwise to remove. Do not use the bolt on the stator to hold the crank in position when dng the crank bolt. You may end up undoing the stator bolt or worse, then you are in trouble. Put the bike in 5th gear and have a helper stand on the rear brakes or use an impact gun. 8-)

You are welcome, I assume you saw the how to article here in the 1100 DIY page that covers the alternator conversion . 8-)
