hi mate, ask viking paul! in a previous post he says the cover will come off without destroying it. when i did mine i had to saw through the cover with a hacksaw blade. you pull out the rubber bung near the injector pump and then saw down near the brass insert. you still have to take off the bottom pulley i believe and thats torqued up to about 450 ft pounds if i remember correctly. even after doing that it was still tight coming off and even tighter getting back on. ive sent you a pm
