Help! Foreman 450 ES. Found extra spring in clutch cover

Recommended Posts

 
Posted (edited)

I had previously thought this might have been the oil pressure valve spring, since its also in the front cover

Pat checked it out and said that the pressure spring is still in place

Anyone else out there have an idea on whee this spring might come from?

It was sitting  in the bottom of clutch cover when he pulled it off

 

I wonder if the cam chain tensioner fell apart at one time and the spring from it rolled out of sight and got left in there?

It doesn't look like the relief valve spring

This is the first time the cover has ever been off but it's possible it's been in there forever.  My son also said this washer fell out.  I was fairly sure I knew where it goes but now I'm not so sure because I don't see it on the exploded view of all the parts.  Does anyone recognize this and know where it goes?

Is that the washer that goes on the end of the shift 'rod' that goes from front to back through the engine?

I think you're right.  That washer goes on the front of the shifter shaft and touches the cover.  It makes sense because it's the only washer that can just fall out when the cover is removed.  The washer was probably stuck to the cover from the oil on it.  I'll put it there and see if the cover touches home or if it bottoms our prematurely.

Thanks!!!

Pat
