CCT REPLACEMENT

Recommended Posts

I just received my new CCT for my 1997 XX. Is their anything I should be aware of in order to replace the old one. I'm assuming it is a direct replacement, unbolt and remove the old one, install the new one and then remove the key that holds the piston in place. And then start the engine. 

Yes? No?

Aren't you supposed to use a little key to relieve tension before removal and install? Been a looong time and maybe I'm thinking of a step in adjusting the valves, somebody tell me if I'm crazy or not....

LOL!  
If you insist, "You are crazy"!

unbolt old CCT (allen) and remove

Drop in new CCT with new gasket, tighten allen screws ...
Then and only then remove the key from the top of the new CCT.
You will hear the "Lifter Set" tension up as you pull the key and release the spring.

What we call a CCT, Honda calls a Lifter Set.

Here are pics of the old and new CCT

The old one, pink dot was installed with 8mm bolts, the new one came with allen head bolts.

The old one has a bolt in the end of it. Am I supposed to have a bolt for the new one?

I just started my XX up and it is very quiet. Because the noise increases gradually I had no idea how bad it was. It has 29,003 miles on it.

I just started Jackie's 2001 XX with 17,972 miles and it is very quiet.

My other 97XX with 25,052 miles, not so much. It too needs a new CCT.
