hi, task at hand 'taking down the cylinder head' - front cylinder. forum search and workshop manual didnt get me further on that initial task, to later diagnose my oil issue. any hint / link on how to align the pistons etc before further action?
I am keeping it with higgy's signature

There's no problem so bad that a little fixing can't make it worse!
If it ain't broke keep fixin it till it is

thanks a lot in advance

Gruezi !

I have not understood why taking the front cylinder head could help to solve your oil problem, but to dismantle you need a special ducati tool in a "U" shape. Check at the end of the workshop manual and order it at your local ducati store or on eBay :

Objet :
Laser Outils 6127 crows pieds clé set-DUCATI for around 55€ delivery included.

Align cylinder ? Well there is only two cylinders and two pistons connected by a conrod for each one....

What is your oil issue ? Leaking or burning ?

engine running, but very smoky, according to my mechanic it is the front cylinder having oil in the cylinder. he is not sure where from bur eighter leaking gasket or worse. so since i want to do it myself he suggested to take down the cylinder head and start checking.... wrong approach? thanks to both of you

Nlzero, before opening the engine, check through the trap about the guides of your valves if they are loose, if the rubber is still there.
