rev counter (tachometer) drive oil seal

Postby rogertee » Fri Oct 15, 2010 5:12 pm



How do I go about removing this from the housing? Mine is leaking quite badly and as I'm doing all the other seals it would be silly not to do this little one.

Remove the top bolt that hold the tach to the head and pull on the tach cable. IF you look at it closely you be able to tell what bolt I am talking about.

thanks, but I have the cable out okay. It's the small oil seal and cable drive that I wish to remove from the fuel pump housing.

Cheers,
Roger

I removed one by using pliers to pull on the shaft and it came out,keep in mind the fuel pump was removed from the mounting screws and pulled away from the head.After doing this i discovered the plastic gasket was cracked which may be the cause of my leak.I replaced the gasket with a good one and it has not leaked as it was idling in the driveway,have not taken it on a road test yet thuogh.
