Having purchased new cover is it a straight undo and replace?

Are there any hidden springs or anything that might drop out.Is it necessary to replace the gasket.I can carry out some basic jobs but nothing major.!!

Thanks for any advice.

Regards Brownbaker

Is it the rocker cover you are replacing? Upper or lower part (it comes in two parts)?

This would be the timing chain cover that brownbaker means I hazard a guess.

Being as I want to refurbish mine, I too would be interested in the answer.



(wasn't the one on ebay today was it ?)

Are you talking about the center somewhat oblong shaped cover on the very front of the engine? The timing chain cover? Or have you purchased one of the aftermarket chrome covers that simply stick on top of the whole affair with double stick tape?

If the original cover (order replacement gasket first) just take out the ten bolts in the cover, clean the mounting surface well, silicone sealant is required in three spots also, and if switching covers you have to take the CKP sensor(crankshaft sensor) off the original cover and install on the new. There are a couple dowel pins to make sure you do not loose and insure they are in place on the install.

Torque is not much, I forget, would have to look it up, but low.

Nope no springs are gonna jump out. :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

Sorry my scanner is broke or I would scan the manual for you so you can see the whole operation.

Yes you need a new gasket, about £7.00 from dave silvers, its about a 20 minute job to take the old one off and clean the gasket and put the new one on, I'll come and help you do it and give you a few bob for your old one, your about 20 minutes maybe 30 from me...

Are you sure it is not an aftermarket chrome one ?? if it is then as Kit has said it just sticks on over the old cover , 3 min job ,Just make sure the old one is cleaned of oil and greaseso that the double sided tape sticks well to it , Ciaran

It is the whole cover that Brownbaker bought I believe, not an after market cover.:)

Sorry for not replying sooner,I only just received the E-mail saying there was a reply.

I would love to take the Offer of fitting from Tanygaer.I will let you know when the gasket arrives.My old one is pitted and spoils the front.As for chrome I used to have a Valkyrie and developed Chromitis so I have had enough polishing!!
