546/2 engine tin side standing covers

#1 Post by ThibautBoey »

hello,

pre-assembling a 546/2 to see if I have everything before the next step...
I note that the side standing covers( number 23 in the parts manual) are different from each side. have 2 identical and 1 does not fit. i suspect they will differ due cilinder set up/arrangement.

otherwise I have 1 to trade :D


thanks for the info.

Thibaut

That piece should be identical side-to-side.

You need to manipulate the cylinder tins until the side pieces go into place.

I was too careful. It is wriggling to make fit but it worked.
thanks!
