Trying to learn

Post by kwikpaso »

Hi,Ken from Grimsby Ontario Canada here, Seasons Greetings to all.
Here is a pic of my 1988 750
I have had it for 10 years.
Could anyone explain what the small slotted pin/set screw to the right of my spark plug is?
I have been unable to find any views with info on the plug side of the head.

Sharp looking 750 Ken, nice to see you hang on to it.
I’ll offer a guess on that set screw - someone more knowledgeable can correct me - that it’s a plug for an externally drilled oil galley.

With the red and white color scheme it looks like a 906.That large modern Ducati logo doesn't belong on the front tho.
I agree with Janky59. It may have to do with the oil gallery on the bottom of the camshaft bearing.

Thanks for your help, and diagram posted.
I find it frustrating that the view, with all my itemized diagrams, are from the right side of the engine.

I'd have to agree, an oil galley. It's the only thing that makes sense. And great to see a new posting! It seems like it's been forever!
