Somebody posted regarding whether the machine shop had
replaced a hex head screw at the front of my engine.

I think this picture verifies it is in place. Extreme
oil loss was the concern if it were not there.

I hope that this is the aforementioned screw and that all
is cool. If not, I'll have to reexamine to verify all is
well. Thanks.

Yea, aren't we looking at the back of the engine in the photo?

Yeah, Bill. That is the back. I'll check for one in the
front. Didn't think I saw one. Maybe that's exactly
why I should double-check, huh?

Ahhh, I see why you commented, Bill. I misspoke and
called this the front of my engine. Actually, it is the
back of the engine. Thank you for that correction.

Dennis- you are learning so many interesting things about
engine innards. Thanks for posting all the in-progress photos.
Great stuff for us non-mechanic guys. :thumbsup:
