  14. I am in the process of rebuilding the M/C from my 2249 Senior and I made a startling discovery The M/C on my car had the threaded plug hole with the thread external on the lid that is held on by 6 bolts I have 2 other spares that I have collected over the years and on of them was the same as the one from my car However the other one has the thread internal on the lid .I assumed that someone had put the odd one out together wrong until I checked the spare parts book and it clearly shows the thread internally in the M/C I wonder how many others are around with the M/C lid on upside down
