|To access the engine bolts, the yellow chain case cover needed to be removed.|
|Note the BSA rubber bung proudly advertising the name of the manufacturer. Bear in mind it would have been completely hidden by the engine enclosure almost all of the time!|
It looks fairly clean inside the chain case, quite unlike everything else. Engine bolt is accessed just behind the top run of the chain but there is enough slack to not have to remove the chain:
|Behind the plastic flywheel cover.|
|Plastic cover just needs a clean and it is ready to fit to Bertie Batavus.|
The idea is to get the Batavus all sorted and running properly and reliably (and road legal so I can use it on NACC runs), then use the running engine as a reference for when I try and put an Ariel 3 together.
