I think he has the bolts.looking for a helicoil size? that's the crankcase section of the manual.look in the primary area.

I thought I saw it in the section under “chains” which has both primary and rear chains and associated parts(?).

Did the helicoil yesterday. No too bad at all. Put a cork with a hole in it the timing plug and blew air through.

The tang at the end is the only concern I have. I put a hook in and gave it a pull. Wasn't there anymore but couldn't find it in the floor.

Hope it will be good!
