What attaches here? Anything?

Post by BevoBowen »

My ‘76 has a threaded hole on backside of right cylinder head. Is anything supposed to attach there? The left cylinder has a threaded hole on backside of head, same relative place, and on my bike there’s a pan head screw holding a clip that secures wires from the points.

So, is the hole on right side used?

Both heads are identical, interchangeable, same part (except for the cams), so that hole must not be used on that side.
When all else fails, RTFM!
