I bought a refurbished rocker cover end of last year and checked the wee screws then. Anyway picking up a another cylinder head and piston today so it'll be rebuild soon. Might even do some head work on this one :)

I meant I should check these screws too.

Perfect time to mess with the head, what's the plans?

What a place to use a self tapper, I wonder how many other engines have been wrecked because of them. Is it holding a splash guard of some kind? the other side of the cover doesn't seem to have one so can it be removed?
