1976 XL250: removing alternator cover with motor on frame

Recommended Posts

Is there a trick to getting the alternator cover off this '76 XL250 with the motor still on the frame? I got all of the screws out, and am able to pull the cover away from the block but can't get it all of the way off. Is there a bit of the frame towards the bottom - perhaps the lower front motor mount - that's getting in the way? And if that's the case, can I just loosen the other motor mounts & jack the motor up a bit and gain enough clearance? Sorry, should have taken a pic...

Never mind. Got it off - had to cut off a flanged part of the front lower motor mount.
