Besides the tool kit you will receive 1) A stand for an Ironhead motor 2) points cover and gasket 3) Compression tester 4) Timing with running gadget 5)Timing Light 6)34742-71 Filler Cap”

That tool kit should fit into a Large Flat rate Box which cost $17 and change to ship with E-Bays discount.

To preserve originality the exploding gears in the trans were retained to maintain that question mark every time you select 2nd or 3rd.
