Yep gotta pull the engine. Since you have it pulled you might consider the tuxedo stator plate mod.

Thanks

I was hoping the stator mod could be put in without removing engine LOL I have 27666 miles on it now. New stator(H.D.) and rectifier should last another 27666 miles.

It can be put in w/o pulling engine. However, the process is only a few steps away from pulling motor anyways.

And IMHO its safer to do with the engine pulled. More room to work and you don't have to worry about your bike tipping over onto you.

I shyed away from doing an engine pull also, to do my upper cam chains....Im sorry I did...shouldda pulled it in autumn....now, I may end up being late for riding season (a little)....at least these bikes have the removable frame section to allow for easier removal...60's and 70's bikes didnt have that, and it was a real chore....these tend to be 10x easier from what Ive been told...

Good time to do yer splines too....btw....

Oh well...

I ordered the parts and will pull the motor, I just wonder how to disconnect the driveshaft or front part by the engine case to disconnect it; I think it is the front bevel?? Will I need more gaskets? I will lube the shaft, I may be able to disconnect it to get the engine out.

to remove your driveshaft, you need to remove the front bevel gear. Unbolt it and slide it out and forward a bit. should come out smoothly. You will probably need new gaskets, but it will be cheaper to buy gasket material and make your own. When I made mine, I used line chalk (blue) and dusted it over the areas that needed a gasket and then placed the part on the gasket material and applied a bit of pressure. The chalk leaves a nice outline on the paper for the new gasket.

Now where did this piece come from???

Good luck with that. I bought the Ricks "HD" stator and it lasted 400 miles before the cheap Chineese wire melted together in the case at the stator itself. Second replacement the engine case got the Tuxedo mod! Never did get my replacement or money back from Ricks. Guess they lost it in the mail.
