    I know enough to get in trouble with this question.

    I have a 5" XL bottom end I rescued at a swap meet.

    I'm not sure if any oil slinger is used on the early five speeds. Certainly not the big one that you have.

    That cover is sealed by an oring or gasket that you may not be able to find. If you don't need to pull the cover, leave it alone. "No user serviceable parts inside."

    Not a poorly balanced tire, but a bad tire. A good tire with no balance won't do that, but may cause some vibration. A bad tire, meaning the carcass of the tire is damaged or coming apart, will cause...
