Can I remove the timing gear

i'm building up a 350 wide case race bike. The ignition timing is via the crank courtesy of the Electrex STK-168D ignition system. Since I'm no longer using the cam for timing, do I need the timing gear at all? Can I remove or if I do will the oil pump gear get wobbly?

Matt,
Thanks so much for the in depth description. What size oil lines did you use for the returns into the timing case? And what size AN fittings did you use? Pics would be AMAZING.

Again, thank you for taking the time to write out such a thorough response.

Location for external oil lines

I know there were some discussions on this several years back but I never saw anything definitive on location of the external oil lines. I'm building up a 350 for race season and I've heard this is a modification worth making. So, where do the fore and aft drain lines on the head go? Looking at phot...

Re: Narrow Case AC vs DC coil

Aren't the AC coil terminals marked 1 and 15 and the DC terminals marked + and -?

Re: New to the forum and vintage Ducatis

Aren’t 7/8” and 22.2mm bars the same thing? I always assumed bars came in 7/8” and 1” (for Harley and some Triumph and the like)

Re: Marzocchi fender studs

Fair point and I agree. Used flame on the alu boss and not directly on the stud. Made nary a difference. I'm sure they are just screwed in but woe be the one who tries to unscrew them.

Re: Marzocchi fender studs

Soaked in penetrating oil for 24 hours. Hit the studs with the flame wrench. Used a stud extractor. All 4 studs sheared. I drilled the studs out and retapped them at M8x1.25. All is well.
