Andy, sure no problems.
-remove outboard cover.
-unplug wire going to temperature sensor? (above carb)
-move wires out of the way that go across rear plastic cover (top rear of engine)
-unplug rubber drain tubes either side
-remove rear plastic engine cover (held in place by two rubber grommets on rear of cover)
-check that cam belt is lined up with the pully. On its own the pulley can drop down towards cylinder head which allows the belt to ride up and flip off
-test camshaft pulley with slight hand pressure both sides pushing down (and look for cracks around metal hub)
-replace in reverse order

Camshaft Pulley issues on Honda 50 / 60 HPs

Hector, no idea myself.

Are the pulleys made of a hard dark plastic? Is the inner hub (part of the pulley) made from metal)? If yes, I guess they could be prone to the same problem.

By the way, got the run around from Honda UK (in Swindon)

regards
G

We managed to get one repaired under warranty but we had to do alot of work to get Honda to pay out, the engine was under warranty just but they didnt want to pay out because the customer had not had it serviced on the dot each yeah. We argued that the pulley failure would have happened regardless of the servicing.

The small dealership replaced the cam pulley and checked valve clearance for free. They did not know that it was problem with them. The motor did not have service history as i do it myself but had an hourmeter and looks as new. Their service was great
