Thanks Henry.  I believe we are going to use the original one.  Seems to be ok but if need be I will contact you.  Thank you!

You have probably solved this by now, but with luck, it was just a rust out between the threaded hole and the water chamber. As you know, some of the head bolt holes go right through to the water jacket, but to my recollection this hole shouldn't. This should be a stud not a bolt, right? If so you could just use a sealant on the threads of the stud.

As ar as I know, there is no release bearing available that works. I modify a later ponton era bearing by removing the rear grease chamber and using a special metal seal to keep the grease in. I also machine the carrier so this seal fits tightly.
 
I can do this for you if my machinist is available.

Well, my car (Cab B) does have rubber under the 25mm chrome trim that goes from the radiator to the start of the trunk area.
I don't have anything under the trunk Star or the "220" pieces.
The parts catalogue shows the chrome trim and the rubber.  You can check the classic center.  Niemoeller does have a link to a "rubber profile" page, but it is in German.  I haven't tried to translate.

Is there rubber under the chrome of the hood and doors and rear of car?  Any idea of where to find if needed?

Scott, you are good!  I owe you!  It looks like that flat head screw is broken off on the firewall...  It is broken but flush so I could tell if it was a screw area...  Will get it out somehow and I have the nut for the inside.  Just ordered the oil hose from Niemoller.  Seems like I keep ordering stuff ...

Here you go . .
That shot on the inside was hard to access, but I got it.

Scott,

does the metal piece that the hose attaches to get held down by a screw in the front where that triangle with the hole is?  or just the nut in the inside of firewall near the dash or both?  Or is there no nut?  I have a nut on the inside ...

Scott,

perfect.  Did you have the oil line hose made or where you able to find one?

I don't see the part number for the hose.  I have the metal thing that it attaches to on the firewall. 

I have a nut for the inside of the firewall.  I assume there is a screw somewhere for that little tab on

the firewall.  I believe the part in Group 18 is for the metal thing on the firewall but not the hose...  Mine is cracked...

JUST FOUND IT IN THE ELECTRICAL EQUIPMENT GROUP 54 THANKS!

Here are a couple of photos that I found on my computer.
Will these help?
If I recall, the new hose on the valve cover is the oil line before I replaced the old one.
Let me know if you need more detail.
