The montesa manual sayes that every thing is in the R/H casebut you have to use a crankcase puller and soft hammer The parts book only has Honda numbers Both mains are the same bearings

I'm preparing to replace the mains in my 315 also. Could anyone advise on the following:

Special Tools - Looks like I need to buy

- a M30 flywheel puller

-some sort of clutch or flywheel holder

-crankcase puller

-crankcase assembly tool

I can have use of a press and bearing puller. Have I missed anything ? Can I do without any of these items ? Presumably ebay will be ok to source them, but are there any particular models of any of these tools that are best for price / ease of use ?

Gaskets - Is it possible to buy a decent quality complete gasket set cheaper, instead of buying them all seperately from Sandifords ?

Neutral Gear - it's virtually impossible to select neutral with the engine running. Is this down to wear ? Is there anything I can do about this whilst the engine is on the bench, or is it just a characteristic that I'll have to live with ?

(I understand recommending suppliers is not allowed on this board, but please do PM me if you know of anywhere that can help with the above tools and / or parts)

Recommending suppliers is fine as long as the poster does not gain personally

Got the job done. Special tools needed are crankcase puller and flywheel puller - I was incorrrect above - the flywheel puller is 32mm x 1.5mm pitch l/h thread. It's an unusual size: this firm can make custom pullers. I don't think there is much advantage to buying the main bearings from an engineering shop - the expensive parts are the seals.
