Hi guys,

i removed the sump tonight, and removed the oil pump. I was surprised to be able to rotate the oil pump chain while the crankshaft did not rotate....? Does this suggest the oil pump chain sprocket has worn? :confused:

Thanks :d

The chain sprocket on the crankshaft is not keyed and relies on a friction grip of the outer crankshaft retaining bolt. This bolt is a use-once-only fitting and must be renewed each time it is used.:)
