While parts are soaking thought I’d try and remove the six crankcase bolts. These bolts hold the two crankcase halves together. With ample heat and days of soaking, four of them came out pretty easy. Two are still in and are not budging. I have time to let soak some more for these. I will also be cleaning the decades of dirt and oil from these cases. I will not be detailing then to look like new, simply remove the grudge from them.

This bolt head sustained a bit of damage when removing.

The two crankcase halves each have a number stamped in them to indicate they are a matched set. I am extremely happy I have a matched set!
