I'd like to remove/disassemble the variator on my 79 Moby. I don't have the stroke limiter mentioned in the manual. I'm hearing a strange rattling sound coming from out of there, and though I'm just as likely to do harm to the bike rather than good, I really want to get in there and poke around.
So 1) Is there a good procedure for removing this thing without a stroke limiter while doing no damge to important parts of the motor. 2) Is the nut holding this on reverse thread? I thought I remembered reading somewhere that it is, but I'm not sure.
I'm sure this has been discussed at some point. Sorry if this is repetetive... though I couldn't bring it up in a search...
