Default S3t oil pump drive gear

I want to take a short cut from the factory manual changing the oil pump drive gear in the case.

Can I change the oil pump drive gear by just removing the cam cover and pulling the pinion gear. Then replacing the gear.

Or will i screw up the engine with out re-leaving the cam spring pressure

First, it's very risky to the cam bushings in your crankcase to pull that cover with valve spring pressure on the cams. You're torquing them pretty badly.

Second, you'll have a very difficult time getting the pinion gear off with cams pushing on it from the valve spring pressure.

Third, even if you do manage to get it off, as soon as you pull it clear of the #2 cam, the cams are going to turn due to valve spring pressure. You'll never get it back on there, at least not in the right spot, without pulling the rocker boxes.

Pull the rocker boxes.

Failure of that gear at higher power levels is much more common than it should be. Not a huge problem at the 55-65hp of a stock XL, but at 75-85hp of stock Buells, it was a big deal. HD finally came out with the bronze gear to solve the problem starting in 2006, but they never put it on Sportsters, only Buells.

So yes, if your Buell is pre-2006, then changing this gear as a piece of preventative maintenance is a good idea.

We stock the gears as well as the pinion locking tool you need to change it properly, and we give a 10% discount to XL Forum members.
