Several sources for the the tab. I know a few guys have made a jig that allows you to run a screw into the case that will do the same thing w/o having to take the cover off ......... that is if the pin is not to far out.

You can drill a hole in front and tap it back in and then pin it with the jig....been done a lot.

Why not just pull the cover? It's not hard, and you can tighten up all of the other bolts that are more than likely loose anyway.

I did my first one a couple of months ago, and it took 5 hours including beer and smoke breaks. Next one will be in two weeks. Should go faster.

hard way, easy way, right way, wrong way??? who cares, the axxess hole in cover sounds like a 10-15min fix. i think alot of people could benefit, if jig specs and instructions and pics were added to kdp sticky

That should include pulling the cam and resealing the gear housing.
