Really appreciate all the help ... this forum is awesome, didn't expect such quick replies and nobody even gave me crap for asking a stupid question.

So I investigated closer this morning. Guess, my eyes are not as good as they used to be. There was a washer embedded into the hole. Little bit scary as to why the previous owner had the wrong size washer there and missing a bolt. I sure hope there is nothing broken off inside the cam case but I really don't want to open her up to see. If I do, I'm likely make things worse.

Anyway. take a look at this pic and you can see how easy it was to mistake it. That washer blends right in. That smaller hole to the left has a washer on it believe it or not. I took a 2.5" nail I had on hand and stuck it in the hole and it never even bottomed out. So I am going to try the 2 1/4" bolt. I believe the bolt to the right of that hole is the shorter 1 3/4".

Thanks for the quick help!! Now time to finish rebuilding my caliper, carb, new gas tank, rocker cover leak ... who knows what else. Really didn't know what I was getting myself into when I traded one of my guitars for this. Anyway, it is fun and rewarding.
