Finally got the old girl running and noticed some bearing noise at the belt pulley shaft. I have probally an 1/8th inch of end play on the shaft.
Owners manual say no end play so am I courting disaster any time soon with the right angle gears on the belt pulley and clutch shaft? The bearings have a water mark where the rollers have set on the race. I plan to replace the bearings and races soon but can I shake out the other buggs without hurting anything.
How are the roller bearings on the ends of the belt pulley shaft removed? Can this be done with the shaft still in the case? Or am I going to get to learn how to go in from the transmission top?
Any advice will be helpful. Thank You.
