Re: 9A half nuts

To all,

The “missing” holes in the piece in question would have been drilled, and were not part of the casting.  It looks like that piece slipped by the inspection department.

Nope, all cleaned. Look like new except for the trace amount of paint on them.

Is the hole filled with crud and camouflaged?

That's where I thought it should be, like my 9C. Can't figure why this one doesn't. Looks original too,  as there is paint on them.

Hi, Steve.
My 1948 SB 9A has a hole through the end of the short leg of the L-shaped reservoir on the top half nut.

Hello all,
I have a 1963 South Bend 9A. While cleaning up the apron assembly, I noticed that the top half nut doesn't have any oil hole in it. Is this common? It has the brass tube and trough cast in but no hole. My 9C does have a hole drilled in.
