FINALLY got the damned oil fill cap out. Goddamn people and their 4' cheater bars. Two specially-made tools and still it require a 15" Crescent wrench and more than a little ass behind it. But, I got it out, unharmed.
Cylinder head studs, or, what I hope will work for the purpose, are mocked up. After some other measurements, mocking, etc, I'll try torquing them (with mental fingers crossed).
Wiring harness, fork stanchions, sight glass all arrived and look great.
Broken oil filter stud needs removed, still. That might be the next thing to tackle while I continue to look for a place to strip the frame and swingarm paint.
