Removing LHS Crank Bearing on Tenere?
Im sorting out the old 5th gear trouble on my 85 34L Tenere again and Ive run into a problem: I thought, seeing as though Im down there, Id replace all the bearings too, which I have done before, but now that im wanting to replace the LHS Big End I see that I cant pull off the bearing because I first need to remove the lower Cam Chain Sprocket.... which I cant remove... we broke a puller before realising that the sprocket doesnt come off. Balls!
My question: if I separate the crank will I be able to pull out the shaft to which the sprocket is a part and so remove the bearing? Am I making sense? Also is there any danger is pulling the pin for this reason in terms of it being happily seated now and then being rudely pulled and seated again?
PS You may be wondering how I did it last time? Well the thing is Im wondering the same thing- scary stuff !
