ACCT to TOC MCCT question

I've ordered the new TOC tesnioner and I'm just waiting for it to come in. That being said from what I gather in order to change the front cylinder I just take the two bolts off place in the new one and keep tightening until I feel some tension then back off a half a turn and adjust after start. Does anyone mind allowing me to call them as I go through this? I will PM you my number. I would feel better with someone on the other end with experience

You will also have to carefully bend the oil line bracket away once you get the inside bolt off of the front cylinder. You've got a couple options for the bracket when you put the MCCT on. 1) Leave it bent out of the way. The oil line is plenty sturdy without it. 2) Bend it back into position before putting the acorn nut on. This is what I did. Or, 3) Cut it off with a Dremel or similar tool.

You got it though! It isn't as daunting as it seems. I just put mine on a week ago and took a video of it to ask the guys if it sounded right.

Just DON'T turn the engine over before you've done the initial tightening!

The old pros will chime in soon, I'm sure. Good luck!

Can you explain exactly where this oil line bracket is? I don't see it outside. Is it inside the cylinder?

Your bracket may have been removed.
A good way to check your depth before installing your mcct is to hold a screwdriver into the hole where your mcct will go. Mark the depth & adjust your mcct prior to I stall.
Then it only leaves a small adjustment to seat it.

Its mounted on the right bolt on the front acct. Its just a little chrome tab and not much to worry about.

I just changed it out and there seems to be a small hiccup in the exhaust every few seconds. Would that mean its too loose or tight? Also would someone mind helping me do something. Can someone remove their MCCT and count how many threads there are to the base so I can cross reference my depth for a little gratification

normal oil level is just short of full sight glass when warm, and shut down (check on center stand). while running, oil level is low in glass, as its being pumped thruout the engine

Thanks. I added a full gallon after I dropped it for security. I feel so much better that way. Still really hope someone gives me a showing thread count of their bolt from the base up after tightening so I can see how close I was. If I did it right
