Thanks to all for the suggestions. I'm the blind leading the ignorant when it comes to mechanical expertise. But I try to listen....
Leaking crank seals allow air to be SUCKED in, leaning the air/fuel mixture. Catastrophic engine failure is the result.

Thanks x 1000 everyone for all the excellent information! It helps me more than you realize.
Will try to make a bolt/pin to pull that rotor. Then put that $25 on a case of beer.

My body/paint man had Dupont scan/shoot one of my side covers to come up with paint codes. One chrome, two blues, one clear, wait a week, apply decals, wait a day, and one more clear coat.

Very nice! The chrome looks to be in great shape, and that paint job is fantastic!
