Ducati Diavel Service Manual: Shimming the shafts

Before assembling the crankcase halves, calculate the shims required to obtain the correct end float of the crankshaft and gearbox shafts.

To determine the correct shim thickness proceed as follows.

Shimming the crankshaft

Shimming the crankshaft


Shimming the crankshaft


Add 0.30 Mm preload for crankshaft axial bearings to bed in correctly into their seats (inner rings seated inside outer ring).

Thus, we obtain: sa=la1+la2+0.30-La.

To calculate the thickness of each shim note that: sa=sa1+sa2 where "sa1" and "sa2" represent the shims for the clutch-side crankcase half 1 and the alternator-side crankcase half 2.

Considering the alignment of the shaft, this gives: sa1=la1+0.15-La/2; and finally, the second shim thickness: sa2=sa-sa1.

Shimming the crankshaft


In addition to the above procedure, the following is a practical shimming method, providing a guide on how to calculate the crankshaft shim thickness accurately.

Install a shim of minimum thickness (1.90 Mm) on each side of the crankshaft to prevent contact between the crankshaft web and the crankcase.

Install the crankshaft and assemble the two crankcase halves.

Fit four m8 screws in the seats indicated in figure and tighten them to a torque of 19 nm (min. 17 Nm - max. 21 Nm) (sect. 3 - 3, Engine torque settings).

Shimming the crankshaft


Place a dial gauge (c) with magnetic base on a support plate fixed to crankcase.

Bring the stylus into contact with the end of the crankshaft and set the dial gauge to zero in this position.

Shimming the crankshaft


Place a lever (d) between crankcase and crank web of the crankshaft pushing towards dial gauge.

Note on the dial gauge the total clearance and add a preload of (0.30 Mm) plus the thickness of the shims used (1.90X2=3.8 Mm).

Divide the resulting value by two to obtain the thickness of the shim packs to be installed at either end of the crankshaft.

Note

After assembling the crankcase halves, the crankshaft should turn with some interference in the new bearings.
