I started using Goo-gone and my fingernail. Worked good till I got to the clutch cover. That thing was a beast.
So back to post #1.. Upon much closer inspection. The PO. did insert a threaded insert in the very back of this hole. It seems like it's way to deep. Sorry no photo.Sorry long story..
Several yrs ago I bought a spare gl engine. Supposed to have had recent triple done? Haven't got far enough into to verify but price was great.
I knew the clutch needed parts and I got the a long time ago. Today I cleared space on the bench to pull front cover and address clutch.
A PO. had smeared JB weld all over the place to address an oil leak. I have been able to remove most with brute force, but this idiot must have used 2-3 full tubes..
I did however find an issue on the lower right bolt on the Rach cover. It is/ was FUBAR. View attachment 200086 View attachment 200087 I dressed the face with a file, but there is a gaping slot in the bolt hole.

Can I use more JB weld to "dress" this slot and bolt face safely?
Also how do I remove the rest of this shit from the block and covers??? Thanks pete
New seal arrived today and I'm glad I did not try the other one looking at how it actually sits on the rear cam shaft. Thanks all for the input.I've seen the 17 x 28 x 7 from the front of the cam, used at the back.
The seal was deformed by the extra mm shoved through it and leaked like a pig.
