So I added oil to the primary/trans/oil bag. I started working the kicker to pump oil into the crank case... and noticed a drip on the lift under the motor and thought "Oh shit..." so I got to inspecting and found this...


Turns out I'm supposed to have a blanking bolt and copper washer in there to plug that oil way. I did not have the original on hand. But had a bunch of 5/16-18 bolts which is what that oil way required. So I grabbed one and trimmed it to length with the lathe and installed it...


Very glad that drip was that easy to correct... crossed fingers for the rest of it.

Another teaser... still tying and tucking wire and cables for a good slip fit on that tank tunnel... it's pretty tight in there.

Don't forget the insulators Garry said... "insulators?" I said.... they arrived today and I slipped them in-between the carbs and mainfolds.
