Re: bugs in my 1200!

Thanks for the response Howard.  It was just 4 perimeter holes, as you thought.  I cleaned them out with about 50 Q-tips with soap solution and probed around until I got all the dirt out.  There was never any gritty sound like the Ded bearings were contaminated so I figured it was fine and reassembled with my new tandem saddle rig.  All is well.

Hi Steve,
Dave asked me to write the response.  I have attached a simple drawing in a PDF that he provided.  The good news is that the 6 perimeter holes are NOT through-holes.  The only 2 holes of possible concern are highlighted in the drawing.  I'm guessing they were covered by your plate.  For cleaning the holes out, he suggested using a 1/4-20 tap.
