Front Sprocket Orientation
I'm replacing the front sprocket as part of a chain replacement and came to installing the front sprocket. According to the manual, the extruded side is supposed to go closest to the engine but there is no way I can get the sprocket onto the shaft past the frame. Same with the old sprocket. And I'm not convinced it could have come off that way round either.
I could do with some advice here...
EDIT: I think I could get the sprocket on by alternately tapping it with a rubber mallet and rotating it. But I'm not sure I could get it off again. And in case you're wondering, I pulled the original sprocket several days ago but ran out of time to finish the job and know it wasn't a pain to remove.
