Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Overhaul of the crankcase halves

Carefully examine the engine crankcase halves.

Check that the surfaces of the crankcase halves are perfectly flat using a reference surface.

Check that the bearings (1) and (18), and the bushings (2) and (17) are in optimum conditions. Note that the main bearings must always be changed in pairs (refer to the procedure below in "main bearings").

Note

When overhauling an engine it is good practice to renew all the crankcase half bearings.

After having renewed the gearbox shaft bearings (28) and (9), secure them in the crankcase half with the spacers (21) and the retaining plate (10).

Take care not to lose the shim (6) interposed between the bearing (7) on the end of the gearbox primary shaft and the chain side crankcase half

Overhaul of the crankcase halves


The seal (14) on the external side of the roller bearing (15) must be renewed at each engine overhaul.

Overhaul of the crankcase halves


Check that the oilways are free of restrictions or clogging. Check the condition of locating bushes (22). If apparently distorted or loose in their seats, change them using proper tools. When the locating bushes (22) are hard to remove from casing, use a left-hand tap to force bushes out.

Important

The bushes (22) must always be renewed when they have been removed using the above procedure.

Overhaul of the crankcase halves


Remove the bearing (23), the circlip (5) and the roller bearing (4).

Separation of the crankcase halves
Use two screwdrivers to remove the circlip (29) from the timing belt driveshaft shaft (30) on the clutch-side crankcase half. Note Take care to avoid scoring the surface of the shaft while re ...

Main bearings
The main bearings have are of the angular contact type with offset inner races so that the balls transmit loads from one groove to the other along straight lines at an angle to the axis of the bear ...

Disassembly of the gearbox shafts
Place the shaft in a vice in such a way as to facilitate the disassembly operations. Important Take care not to invert the positions of the shims on reassembly: this would potentially lead to jamming when using the gear selector control, making it necessary to reopen the engine crankcase. D ...

Overhaul of the connecting rods
Make the following dimensional checks on the connecting rods: Clearance with gudgeon pin on assembly. In the event of excessive wear (sect. 3 - 1.1, Crankshaft), replace the connecting rod. The small end bushing must be in good condition and firmly driven into its seat. Check for para ...

Reassembly of the gearbox
To refit the gearbox components follow the procedure under sect. 9 - 9.2, Reassembly of the crankcase halves, relating to reassembly of the engine crankcase. As a final practical test, ensure that with the gearbox in neutral the front coupling dogs (a) of sliding gears (b) are equidistant o ...
