 Thanks MaD MiKe, but its not new. I'm just cheap, didn't want to pay $12.50 a screw for the ones they sell for the purpose. Might get them cheaper if you look.
 I even looked at some different bowls altogether, but like I said, Cheap.
 Like having a set of Tall valve Covers on your Hot Rod, and Solid Cam. Quick access long T Handle bolts would be a must.

I turned off the Pingel petcock and drained the bowls this year because of last years pilot jet clog debacle but if the bowls have to come off next summer or in the future I'm quite sure I'll incorporate your bowl bolt old school ingenuity.    ;)

Oh and by the way..   Nice job on the voltmeter..    :thumbs:

MaD MiKe,
The Voltmeter is going to be used for a second purpose as well. But right now that's all on the back burner. Once the weather decides that it Will be Winter, Then the process will begin. It's supposed to be back in the 60's Tomorrow and maybe Snow on Thursday? They never can forecast here very well. I'll post up some stuff when I get into it.

 PO made some mistakes for sure. I just was putting in some clutch plates, took off the side cover and whats this blue silicone? And what are these marks on the clutch basket, well it looks like the Chain fr the Alternator is really loose and the tensioner is hitting the clutch. The spray nozzel for the chain lubrication is plugged with Blue Goo.  Quick to FeeBay and order some good used stuff, shipped for <$40. Get it installed, and a new gasket so the oiling hole is properly aligned and clear of obstruction, blow the Oil Spray Tube out, reverse direction, and pop out the Blue Goo. Then put it back together. Oh it sounds so much better now, without the chain noise from the side cover.
A couple of new tires, a good used left fork leg, with a fresh seal and new oil as the old one was gouged from a seal removal by the PO, always leaked.
 Install a master and Slave cylinder rebuild kit, and then time for another ride. Next weekend, is Hodaka days here in Oregon, so some of us will be going up to that, bike camping.

Most often it's the tensioner mechanism that fails and lets the chain flop around.
Keep an eye on it. The steel piece that the rod fits through usually snaps.
I've had to replace the tensioner in two of my three C10s.
Sounds like yer having fun with it though.  ;D
