No, shouldn't be there. It was almost certainly put in by |
someone who line bored the bearings for the gear counter
shaft. There's not much room between the last bearing and
the inside of the case so if the line boring machine had a
large support bracket for the boring shaft, it would have
had to go outside the crankcase - hence the hole to pass
the boring shaft through. At least it shows that someone
has worked on the bearings at some time in it's life -
probably did the crank bearings at the same time maybe?
I've seen a few Hendersons where this has been done. Ace
engines have the hole and cover as standard.
