    Good-eye Ross,

     For the tappet hole, there is the screen, open end down, a spring, then the cap...The other hole in the pump is for the check ball, spring, then cap. If you're running solid lifters you don't need the tappet screen, just put the plug in.

    Ross, those part numbers are the correct parts, but for newer bikes. I would suggest calling tech here with the serial # of the engine.

    Re: tappet filter screen 49 pan

     Ross, I apologize that I have been busy with other duties. We offer the screen kits for 52-62 (PN 740-373), 63-65 (PN 740-189), 66-69 (PN 710-372) and 70-99. According to all te reference material I have, 49 should not  have had this. If you are a true small shaft long roller motor that has this tappet screen hole, the 740-373 should work.

     If that doesn't work, send me some pictures of what you have to sholton@jpcycles.com and I'll see what I can figure out.

    Re: tappet filter screen 49 pan

     Do your cases have a Timkin left bearing? Or do you have the small shaft loose roller set up?

    Re: tappet filter screen 49 pan

     i received the photos. What I see are not 49 cases. I think part of the issue may be the threads that have been Heli-coiled in the tappet screen hole. You don't know if the correct thread insert was installed. The cases you have are not from 1949 despite what numbers are on the case. To identify what you have, we are going to have to have you remove the outer primary cover, take a picture of the engine sproket and send it too me. 1952 was the first year the tappet screen appeared, and the cases changed bearing style in 54-55. I suspect what you actually have is an early 60's style case set that the correct tappet screen parts are going to be 740-189. My only worry is the Heli-coil being the correct thread for the plug. Sent me a pic of the sproket and I'll see what else I can tell you.

     While you are at it, send me a picture of the case numbers (on the pad just above the sproket).
