rollmaster i need help with it

Ive been putting it togeather today and the lower gear wont budge any closer to the block theres about 6mm gap then i noticed a cone shapped washer on the gear drive and i was wondering if it goes in there? The top gear is all the way in and the chain is clicking on the lower gear, i think the lower gear needs to come forwards a bit any thoughts?

Dont u hate it when ppl coppy ya user names?

Re: rollmaster i need help with it

The lower gear needs to be seated hard up against the crank with the chamfered edge of the gear crank side only . The whole gear set needs to be installed mated together as a unit .If its '"clicking"" then you haven,t got the gears parallel.

Re: rollmaster i need help with it

the cone shaped washer will go on last , before the cover plate .
helps to deflect the excess oil away from the crank seal.

Re: rollmaster i need help with it

i cant remember if the crank gear is tapered in the hole .
could it be on backwards.

Re: rollmaster i need help with it

nah cause the dots are on the front of the gears it cant be backwards. the lower gear has a 5 mm gap til it closes and the chains are really tight

There is no way the lower gear will ever need to come fwd to match up. The lower gear sets the line where the chain runs. Assuming the lower sprocket is all the way home to the crank step, it will be the cam sprocket that needs looking at. Do you have the cam thrust plate on and bolted up, and did you use the brass shim? Here is a pic of mine, not thata there is too much to see.

Re: rollmaster i need help with it

no i didnt put the brass shim in. The lower gear is just not moving all the way up to the bearing cap. could the crank be bent?

I wouldn't do that. Find out why its not going all the way on. Take it off, and start again, and see what the interference is. Have a look at the step it seats against, and give it another go. It is meant to be very tight, so dont machine anything.

Did you put your harmonic balancer back on? as you tighten up the crank bolt, the balancer will push the crank sprocket on nicely.
