    Does anyone know what is missing from the head of my 1st stage valve cover? It is the threaded hole in the upper left of the valve cover. It doesn't seem to show what should be there in the service manual. I have been searching the web for any images of the Capitano block and can't seem to find any that show the 1st stage cover. 1stStageHead.jpg

    I have a 1985 version Capitano and that threaded hole is used by a support for my flywheel shroud.

    Nothng is missing. That threaded hole is used for the belt guard, depending on design. Your unit seems to be the "portable" (CG-DV) assembled in the US, Bauer, Norfolk. If it were a Euro unit, the hole would be used to support the guard.

    That would be located on the discharge side of the third stage, not on the first.
