Fitting new timing gear.

Just trying to fit the timing gear on my new motor.
Should the bottom sprocket slide straigh on? It steams to get half way along the snout and it gets tight all of a sudden.
I notice the snout seams to have a machined ring around it at the point where it gets tight, do you need to knock it on with a drift or is there something wrong here?
Timing gear is brand new roller master with multi key, but it doesnt seam to matter which key groove you use it wount go on. the key itself is in the crank properly as you can still see light through the sprocket.

any help guys??
cheers

Re: Fitting new timing gear.

First off make sure there are no burrs etc on the crank nose, if there are clean them with some emery tape.
Also make sure your woodruff key is not damaged and it fits the pully.

It should butt up agains the raised part of the crank that the seal runs on. A few light taps with a soft hammer should be all you need. IF it still wont go on compare it closely with your old one, etc the ID of the crank how and width of the slot for the woodruff key, even to the point of fitting your old one to see how it goes on.

Im not 100% sure but i think the windser ones a diffrent and there is always the chance they have given you the wrong one.

Hope this helps somehow.

Re: Fitting new timing gear.

The crank sprocket will be TIGHT. It is a press on job, or you can tap it on with a brass drift. The sprocket will seat against a step, but not where the seals runs though, because the balancer hasn't been fitted yet. Degree it right the fisrt time, or you need a puller to remove the sprocket if you need to advance or retartd it.

But unless you put it on all the way you can't tell if its degreed right, so he may have to take it off and adjust it.

I bet he puts it on zero, or advanced 2, and doesn't use a degree wheel. Just a hunch
