YM1500D Camshaft Removal

Postby stepheal » Mon May 18, 2020 1:02 pm

I need to remove the camshaft from my YM1500D engine. The manual says to "Remove the stopper" then simply "Remove the camshaft". I believe the "stopper" is the Philips-head bolt that goes in the hole circled in red in the attached pic. Should the camshaft just pull out or is there something else I need to remove?

I agree with your thinking. Should have been a washer under that screw that holds the ball bearing from coming out. Watch out for lifters.
