Cam damper inspection
Visually inspect the cam surfaces of the damper cam
and cam
follower.
Check the splined or serrated portions
of the cam, cam follower, and inner and outer
shafts.
If they are badly
worn,
replace them with new ones.
Visually inspect the damper springs for cracks or
other damage. If they are damaged replace them with
new
ones.

Bevel gear inspection
Visually inspect the teeth of bevel gears. If there
is any kind of damage, replace the two bevel gears as
a set.
ENGINE LUBRICATION SYSTEM
The engine lubrication system includes the oil screen,
engine oil pump, oil filter, oil bypass valve, oil pressure
relief valve, and oil
passages.
An oil breather keeps
crankcase pressure variations to a minimum and reduces
emissions by recirculating blowby gases. The discussion
here concerns how these parts work together, and how
the oil reaches the various parts of the
engine.
Details
on the relief valve, engine oil pump, and oil filter are
given in the sections (Pgs. 201 -- 202) following engine
lubrication.
Since the engine lubrication system is a wet sump
type, there is always a supply of oil in the crankcase
at the bottom of the engine. The oil is drawn through
the wire screen into the oil pump as the pump rotors
turn.
The pump is driven by the gear attached to the left
side of secondary shaft. The screen removes any metal
particles and other foreign matter which could damage
the oil
pump.
From the pump the oil passes through
the oil filter element for filtration. If the element is
badly clogged, slowing the flow of oil through it, oil
bypasses the element through a bypass valve in the oil
filter mounting bolt. After passing through the filter,
the oil branches into five lubrication routes in the oil
pan. One of these routes is to the crankcase main oil
passage. Through the main oil passage, the oil flows
to the crankshaft main bearings, then to the connecting
rod big end journals, starter gear journal, camshaft
journals, right side water pump drive shaft journal, water
pump shaft
journals,
governer shaft journals, and
primary chain
.
