Separating the intermediate section from the cylinder block
Carefully pry the intermediate section from the cylinder block so that there is a gap of approximately 6-8 mm.
Then carefully tap off (on the exhaust side) the intermediate section with a rubber mallet.
Lift out the intermediate section. Ensure that the bearing covers for the intermediate section come with it.
Caution! The bearing covers are not interchangeable. Also not the position of the upper half of the axial bearing for the direction of rotation of
the crankshaft. The crankshaft must not now be turned.
Ensure that the screws for the flywheel and carrier plate, which were installed earlier, are properly tightened. Lift them and the front of the crankshaft.
Carefully lift the crankshaft straight up.
Remove the remaining bearing covers.
Note! The bearing covers for the different bearing seatings are not interchangeable.
