The bolt is one of the primary cover bolts. I thought it was missing but turns out it was broken off below the cover at one of the knock pins. Doesn't surprise me. All the fasteners I've encountered so far have been tough to get off.

Make sure you use antisieze grease when you're putting it back together. That's probably why you have to do an extraction in the first place.

Good luck!

I can't quite tell for sure - The image is a little dark - But right near the shifter shaft, it appears (in this picture) that one of the Ring Gear Teeth is missing or shorter than the rest...

Is that so?

Thanks for the tip on the anti sieze.

Good eye about the gear tooth! Unfortunately I got some cold bug that hit me pretty hard, and haven't been doing much of anything. The plan is to get some better photos, confirm the chain tensioner model, and try and remove the nut to inspect the stator. I'll see what stoud material I have to wedge the gears... Though I'll probably go and pickup the heavy duty brass hinge.

Updated photos. Old tensioner it looks like. The teeth look decent enough, must've been a smudge on the lense

With some grunting and an old door hinge was able to get the front nut off. Seemed a tad smaller than 1 1/8. Stuck at the clutch nut... Don't have 1 3/16" socket. For some reason I have (2) 1 1/8 sockets, so will grind the second one down a bit. Will get some photos once I'm in. Also need to pick up some red locktite for reassembly.

Well, 1 3/16 was way too large for the socket, so I picked one up.
Pics attached... I didn't see anything noteworthy, other than on the clutch assembly, the teeth that engage the starter look like they were hitting the shifter arm. Maybe it's these chunks that I saw in the oil?
