Front CCT and Haynes info ???

So i changed the read CCT. wass np at all. Working on the front cct now.

In the guides on this forum. it says i should turn the engine 1.5 or so until the mark FT alignes.

In the Haynes manual it says the same, but also says that the marks on the crankcase cover should align with the FI and FE marks !!!

I tryed this but cant get em to align at all when the mark are on FT.

any one noticed this before ? and what do i have to work after, the haynes info or the info on this forum ?

Jens

I would just follow one guide (personally the one on here) to keep from getting confused, because it sounds like you're already confused.

important, it's 1 and a quarter turns, not one and a half;

(11) Clean off mating surfaces, fit new gasket and new CCT, (they come already retracted) once fully
tightened up you can release the CCT plunger making sure it unwinds slowly until full tension is released,
then remove tensioning tool and re-fit sealing washer and bolt, then re-fit cam cover. REMEMBER TO TAKE
THE METAL CAPS OFF THE OLD CCT PLUNGER HEADS AND FIT ONTO THE NEW ONES, AS THE NEW ONES
ARE NOT SUPPLIED WITH THEM!!!!!!.
Most of step 11 does not apply to installing APE’s You don’t have to release tension, and don’t
need the “caps”
After installing the rear APE and getting it finger tight, go to step 12
(12) Now remove the zip ties, turn the engine over anti-clockwise 450 degrees (one and a quarter turns)
until the 'FT' mark lines up with the mark on the alternator cover, you are now ready to remove the
front CCT using the same procedure as the rear, without the need to remove the front cam cover
(13) Re-fit everything else in the reverse order of removal, I use a little thread lock on the screws that
hold the base of the air box to the carbs.
(14)
