I have an idea that because the latter covers are a bit thicker that if you use one on an earlier motor that has had a cast iron oil pump retro fitted you need to use a Dremel ( or as English speakers would call it a die grinder ) or similar to relieve the cover a bit so it doesn't interfere on the pump, test the fit with no gasket to make sure there is clearance and dont just rely on the gasket thickness to provide clearance , its too marginal
something like that anyhow details are starting to drop out of my head but 95% im right ......can someone confirm this remark
BTW Kevin E ... i saw u liked one of my posts , glad we have buried the hatchet bro ... all good this end
Hey Ignoramus, hope you’re well buddy.
My post was concerning the primary drive side chain case, so no worries about oil pump clearance on that side of the bike.
Hatchet was never out, so no need to bury it.
I’m not the type to hold a grudge. We’re all bikers and BSA lovers, so live and let live I say.
Take care over there in NZ 👍🏻
