First off, I would like to thank Lakeside for the great pictures, details in this thread on splitting cases and reassembly, http://arboristsite.com/showthread.p...splitting+case. Secondly, I would like to thank Jacob J for the help his has given me so far and in the future on the 064 with a 066 big bore kit. He has done this set up numerous times and has the insight of what is needed to make it work.
While I am not as fast as Brad, I will try to post the same amount of pictures. So this thread will be a little slow and I will update as I go along.
So first off is splitting the 064 case and pressing out the bearings. With the help of the fore mentioned thread and my dad's experience of doing bottom ends on old 2-stroke dirtbikes, My dad and I plunged into the 064.
The reason for the splitting of the case was due to a bad pto bearing. The polymer retainer let go.
Now to the pictures:
PTO side, splitting the case. Went surprisingly easy.
PTO side bearing shell. The ball bearings are held in by a plastic/polymer retainer and it had let go. The whole thing just fell apart when touching it,
Here is how we knocked the crank out. We set it up on the wood blocks, with the crank free of restriction and gave it about 3 medium taps with a dead blow hammer. Didn't take much at all. Very simple.
