Seem to have a bolt missing from the back of the cases and that doesn't look to be a 80mm M6 just past the out put shaft  ;D ;D ;D

Don't think yours had a overflow plate. Fitted to later engines  ;)

ASAP if I were you Paul. Depending on the work you need done on the tank it could take quite a few months.

As you can see from your parts list, it is wrong. No, number 1 against the K2 and that is when it was introduced in the UK  ;)

Looks like it depends on the engine number as it shows a 'from'  number in the RH column.

Oil filter housing repair.
Bit more shaping and finishing with a fine stone and it will be ready for painting  ;D ;D
