    I believe thats for HD Tool 9455755. This has bar has 2 pins that fit in those holes to help hold the compensator.

    There is a crank seal behind that tin shield, looks like too much Blue loctite in that picture also. My guess is the crank seal is leaking, I would check the end play on the crank as well JMO from looking@ the picture

    the blue you see isn't locktite its formagasket behind primary. If i can find that tool that fits those holes can that be unscrewed with primary removed so i can replace seal?

    That is L/H threads.I used a blunt punch to remove it on a '68 a couple days ago.They make an upgraded one with new type seal in it already. Drag Spec. has them & maybe V-Twin. Hope this helps.

    When you get that seal out check the threads, there could be damage to the case, that may explain why that seal is leaking, or it was not screwed in all the way once again explaining the sealer, The extension shaft may have to be pulled off with a 2 jaw puller once the bolt is removed. You may try a brass punch in the holes of the seal, a spanner wrench may also work if you have one, it is LH thread go easy and check the case good for missing pieces
