    Think the cam cover is a one year only deal for the Pans ...
    63 & 64 Cam covers had fins, only the 65 was a Flatside cover ...



    66-69 was the same Cam cover without the oil hole being drilled ..

    Yeah it is mate, not sure if the hole in the shank of the bolt lines up with gallery when done up though

    You may have to switch to one of the aluminum washers with o-ring molded on the ID. Like the ones H-D uses on their brake system banjo bolts.
