Ok I understand how it works now. Sometimes a good sketch is better than a long speech.
No problem, the engine is on the bench now but I took the compensating sprocket off before removing the
engine from the frame.
Thanks
sincerely

Hello,
now that the engine is on the bench, before opening it, I have to take off the compensating sprocket shaft, but can't find any clear information on the way to do it.
Do I need a special tool ?

The sleeve can be anything form a fairly tight press fit to loose on the splines. The factory tool has thin flanges that hook behind the rim of the sleeve and pulls it off. A bearing separator works well for that task too if you have access to one. Warming the sleeve will help as well. Often the sleeve is stuck with old grit/rust/etc., and soaking beforehand with Kroil or the like will also help. Judicious use of a pair of screwdrivers can achieve removal as well but caution must be used.
