Missing Screw on Engine

Post by laxin20 »

I’m pretty sure I have a missing screw on the right hand side of the engine. Please see the photos.

Anyone know what size those screws are?

Your finger pointer is confusing but if you are referring to the hole in the fuel pump ??? that isn't a screw hole. The pin that the fuel pump cam follower rotates on fits through there.

You don't have a missing screw. Both heads are the same, with one obviously reversed round compared to the other. That hole is for the belt cover bolt when used on the left hand side head.
'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
