Torquing up vis balance shaft delete freewheel?!
« on: November 10, 2020, 09:35:06 pm »
Is there a guide anywhere on fitting this free wheel? How is it braced to be able to torque it? I assume a dab of blue loctite is advisable?!

Thanks

There's a hole in the pump housing to poke a small screwdriver/allen key into to hold the shaft still to torque up the sprocket.

@muff1991 has a picture of it.

Loctite isn't a bad idea.  I'd go with the permanent loctite red personally.
