Re: 1972 B50 SS Return to Flight.

I would not be worried about this more worried about wearing the splines on the clutch where they slide when releasing.

You should change the smarties to the PES type that aren’t affected by oil while apart.

Re: 1972 B50 SS Return to Flight.

I think the one that I’m thinking of has a tube from the centre plug to the level of gear box oil and the complete plug is for drainage or could be primary case.

Re: 1972 B50 SS Return to Flight.

I do recognize that but memory from my rebuild more than 5 years ago something like gearbox oil level drain or primary side level drain. You should buy a spare parts book or look at the one on the site.
