Here's a quick recap of what was already done:
|Joey's CB750 is inching closer to roadworthy, state-inspected completeness. With the brakes replaced, brake light fixed, and most recently the front wheel bearing done, there's just a couple more things left to do.|
First up was the cylinder head cover's tach cable seal. Oil has been spewing out of this since we got the bike running. It's time to fix it.
Oil seals arrived!
And that brings us to where we are now:
|Old one's out.|
|New one is replaced with this side facing IN. |
Use a punch to help guide the new seal over the tach gear shaft.
|There's a dimple on the tach gear shaft, the tip of this punch fits in nicely.|
|Once the seal is in place you can guide it in using the end of an old tach|
or speedo cable. Place it over the oil seal and hammer it in evenly.
|Slides right in. No drama.|
|There you have it. Simple as pie.|
