Not really true, it fits nicely but without an idler pinion installed. My engine should be made in May 69, cover number is 71-1047 and it looks like it's later because it has a boss for a later clutch actuating mechanism, however earlier cover 70- something fits even worse, leaving 2 mm gap between it and a case. I checked an idler pinion with both covers and they don't interfere with nothing, it looks like boss for a pinion idler bush in those covers is 2 mm too high. I know for sure a pinion is part of my engine, covers are not.
To lower a boss in the cover I need a milling machine ( which I don't have access to ) so my question is what about turning a back of the pinion on the lathe, are they very hard? Did anybody had the same problem and solved it?
