    Should I be concerned with this crack in the lower unit ?

    Looks like it is just a casting flaw, wouldn’t worry about it…

    I noticed this motor did not have a cam wick installed or a clip for it .. I did lube the cam and arm on the points though . Will this be ok ?

    I would get a clip and wicker installed. They help prevent premature wear of the points shoes rubbing against the cam. Use a small amount of light oil on the wick periodically. If your flywheel has an inspection hole/port then this makes it a lot easier.

    Example of a light oil is 3 in 1 oil.

    After further inspection I actually found the clip .. It was where it was supposed to be without a wick so I didn’t know what it was for at the time .. I couldn’t find my 3&1 oil so I used some sewing machine oil …

    just cut up one of those sticky pads to size and put the felt side on the cam lobe.

    Cool! Just clean up what ever grease you applied to the point shoes and cam. Don’t want that potentially fouling up the points later on. The light oil on the wick is adequate enough.
