Unhappy HELP!! cam cover

I really need someone's help, bad..
I know that you guys know about sportsters so I am contacting you first.
I have a 90 sporty and here is my issue.
I had a screw break off in my cam cover, this screw is one(the bottom one) of two that attach the timing plate to the cover. While drilling it out I think that I went to far, I don't think that I broke thru( well I am sure I did not break completely though) but I don't know what is directly behind that screw that may have been hit...? My main concern is to find out if there is an oil passage for any of the gears etc.. that may have been effected?
Do you happen to have a cam cover laying around and can take a look for me to tell me what is there?
Thanks for the help

Hi m0trh3d,
do you have any idea how far you went? How far can you stick your drill bit into the hole that you drilled? Not sure if you introduced yourself in the forum yet, but if not then welcome!
John
