        It is on. Have not started the bike, yet, so do not know if it will leak.

        The use of the Shifter Washer is to let me get it indexed; the second photo show that once tight, it is pretty much hidden and the oil filter housing is tight. Does not touch the exhaust pipe or oil lines. It fit well on the oil tank threads, even with me putting it on and taking it off multiple times to find out what would allow it to be a best fit, that I can make. I tried a brass washer and multiple sizes of O-rings before settling on the shifter washer. Even that, I had to modify a bit to get the nice fit Certainly would not pass muster at a AMCA show, but I'm not expecting this bike to ever be in one. The goal for him is to have it to be able to ride, not show.

        The oil canister still concerns me. I cannot imagine that it will not leak out the bottom with the nylon washer that he had with it, but will give it a go.

        Thank you, all, again for your help.
