    Are there any videos on crankcase gasket replacement?

    why you need video? it only goes on one way... most important bit is shimming the crankshaft so it has some side to side play, without being excessive, or nonexistent...

    if your gasket is leaking, you should try tightening with an impact driver (including three screws under clutch) - splitting the cases is a lot more than most folks are prepared to do

    there is a special puller for all gears, but the rotor should just slide off if the woodruff key inside the slot is held down a bit with a sewing needle so the magnet can't make it jump up & bind under the rotor
