Re: Annoying Loose Lucas Indicators

The answer is in three parts:
1. Some do.
2. Others have them rotate skyward.
3. Those that have removed their indicators do not have this problem.

Re: B25T Rear Chain Oiler – Cap Off?

My B25 has the oiler hole blocked with a short bolt, no vents in the caps and no oil leaks. I guess there is a vent path through the bush into the gearbox, but there is a large volume of air in the primary drive, it would only take a small hole somewhere to equalise the pressure.

There are at least two different bolts. 83-2776 & 83-3042 are listed on the "Spareparts" database above. I guess for different capacity (rather than age) tanks.
