12) mounted in the end plates (5 and 11).
Mechanical connection to the motor is made by
means of a gear keyed to the crankshaft and
meshed with the driving gear on the motor shaft.
The two gears are enclosed by the gear guard (6,
figure 3-3). Access to the oil reservoir within the
crankcase is obtained through the oil filler cap (9).
The crankcase can be drained by removing the
drain plug (8).
