Mag Cleaning procedure & Pix

Recommended Posts

This might help some, might bore others.

This is the mag cover

Remove 6 bolts with 8mm socket and you will see this

This is what you want to clean

Note the dowel pins

Those holes are where the long bolts go.

This is fine metallic flakes.

Bolt cover on. I like to start with the 2 longer bolts and work on opposing bolts in order. Just snug at first and then torque to maybe 6ftlbs or so.

Finally reward yourself for a job well done.

If you are really pleased with yourself the rewards may continue.

That last pic is great and has given me an idea for a new thread. Everyone post a picture of themselves doing a Dale Wickline impression with their favorite flavour of beer. :applause:

So did you just wipe it out and put it back together? Would blasting it with some contact cleaner help any?

Thanks

Dale: How many miles before you did that (first?) check/cleaning? I've got just under 1K and have not checked yet. Also, you dumped your oil first - right? Otherwise some total squid (me) could have a driveway mess on their hands. Thanks for the pics.

I've got about the same mileage and I've done it twice.

Yes the oil needs to be drained.

I don't use any cleaner just wipe it off.

Nah, those days are long gone. The last time I had a puff was probably 15 years ago, or maybe 4 years, maybe it was 6 months ago. No, it was 10 years ago, fersure 10 years ago.

Thanks Dale! Something to do while it is snowing!!! You did say drink the beer afterwards, right??? Would one beer be ok between draining the oil & taking apart the cover? You really need to be more precise!
