    It's the double timing gear bearing and shaft. It's off an '07 990

    I have the repair manual, but I downloaded the 04-06 version and the part is different

    Looks like you've already got it broke loose and on it's way out.

    If you haven't pulled your tensioners yet, do that first. Before you take that out, de-rail the cam chain and hook it with some sturdy wire (I use an exhaust spring tool and a bungee cord). Then as you remove the shaft, have a hold of the gear. It will all come apart easy as you please!

    I doubt it.

    Alternatively, you can simply pull it and let the gear and chain drop...it's not gonna go very far and will be easy to fish out.

    That what I thought. The bolt comes completely out leaving the shaft in still. In my manual for the 04, the shaft IS the bolt, but this is two pieces.

    On page 4-4 of the engine disassembly there is a note for the 2007 models.

    So you need to pry it out with a screwdriver, the O-ring is keeping it in place at the moment.

    Manual is the same for 03-08 models, i pasted a link but it needs to be approved by a mod first.

    From our local forum, another chap had the same issue and solved it with the bright idea of a 10mm rawplug for concrete to finally get it out:

    I'll be dogged...they did change it! Learn something new...

    That's a good idea, too!
