Joel:

One of the other inmates pointed out that there is a T30 sized cap screw that "vents" the cooling jacket. It is located on the front of the cylinder housing about two inches above the starter on the left-hand cylinder. I don't think the manual mentions this screw, but ... I'm not sure why else it would be there besides helping drain/flush/fill the cooling system?

Any thoughts?
