I recently acquired a '75 E-Start, and noticed a plug on the right hand crankcase below the timing cover at about the 5 o-clock position. I've never noticed this plug before on my previous Nortons ('70 Fastback, '65 N-15, '61 650). Could this be a provision to install a timing pin as I've seen employed on BSA Twins? If so, any further info would be appreciated, as I've never come across any references to timing tools, part numbers, procedures, ect.
