How to remove camshaft drive pulley

Post by Lastwachter »



I have to replace a head gasket on my 1978 gl1000. In the Service Manual it says to remove the camshaft drive pulley and shows a photo of a wrench on the center bolt. However turning that bolt simply moves the valves. How do I remove that bolt?

Hi, if my memory is good, you don't have to take the pulley off but you do, block the pulley with a block of wood or use an impact gun.

Aa in wedge a piece say under the pulley so it doesn't move while I loosen the bolt?
