Jerry,Schwany, I got sidetracked by life so I'm still unsealed. I did get some proper grommets and gaskets from Walridge and will let you know how it turns out. For the first ride I may not use any sealant as I'm expecting to have to adjust the clutch springs again.
My P11 has always been a Frankenstein build from a stripped flat track bike. The inner and outer are not off the same bike. I know that the primary perimeter would seal up if I got both covers resurfaced. Not easy to do though without making a jig and doing some CNC machine programming. Expensive proposition for hiring a machinist.
After cleaning up the little bit of oil on the bottom of the cases with lacquer thinner, I smeared some ultra grey gasket maker over the seam on the underside of the cases. It helps some, but won't last forever. I also made a P11 primary cover maxi pad out of folded up blue paper shop towels to catch the oil. I slip it between the bottom frame rail and the primary cases. No drips on the garage floor or oily mess on the frame after a ride. Not the right solution for a restoration being sold, but for an owner that is tired of cleaning up the mess, it works.
Good luck with your endeavor.
