Interchangeable Access Covers

Beginning with the 1957 Sportster, the crankcase and access cover were re-designed incorporating straight dowels, making the access cover interchangeable from one left crankcase to another.

This new design was also incorporated on all K and KH model crankcases available through parts order. This replacement crankcase is identified by the letter "D" stamped near the engine number pad on the left case.

It is very important to note, that the re-designed access cover with straight dowels IS NOT interchangeable with the earlier access covers using dowel cones.

Therefore, the late style Transmission Access Cover, Part No. 34844-57, can be used only as a replacement on 1957 and later Sportsters and all later style parts order crankcases identified by the letter "D."
