    I bought my Fleetwing from a man in Bonita, California. Now I'm sitting here 3 weeks later noticing a gaping hole at the bottom of my clutch case. I am guessing he ground this hole to clear the right pedal sprocket because when I took out the rubber from the frame mounts today and the engine sat lower it hit the peddle chain...(I didnt know this at the time...) when I took it for a test spin and started the motor, there was a horrible grinding and shearing noise...:( I took the clutch cover off and lo and behold... a ****-load of metal flakes and shearings came falling out:-/. how can I raise the motor so that the clutch doesnt disintegrate. AND is it a problem if there is a hole in the clutch case(not the cover) and if so, how do I troubleshoot this??? I'm asking a lot but I'll use any ghetto or makeshift solutions... Thanks Guys...

    As Ron says, a pic would help enormously.
