Re: oil pump chain adjustment while doing clutch
Actually there are a couple of screws that can be loosened and adjust the tension. But, it is normally very loose. So don't be deceived. There is a inexpensive tool that is used to measure the tension. Don't adjust it snug just by eye. The drive gears are just stamped not machined and it is made to run a little looser than seems reasonable.
Screw #1 is at top of the tension rail, #2 is at the bottom and is the one that slides, it pivots on #1. The tool is:
11 1 931 or order # 041 502.
here are some words from the DVD
Loosely install screw (2).
Insert eccentric gauge (No. 11 1 931) between the sprocket and the gearbox input shaft.
Align the mark on the eccentric (arrow) at right angles to the oil pump drive chain.
Use your hand to push the tensioning rail toward the chain and tighten screw (2).
Few people mess with it. I really think it is worth it to buy the DVD and read through it for the factory details. You can integrate this with your Clymers and other information.
