Thorn, part 2 is the part that I am pointing at with my knife in the attachments, it is what actually makes contact inside of the engine to provide the tension. On the set that I made I went ahead and pinned them in place onto the end of the stainless bolt just to be doubly sure that they wouldn't move. As for leaking in the pick of this part installed you can see a little bit of oil on the aluminium, this is about three weeks of riding without cleaning the bike. The rear cylinder leaks slightly more. They don't leak any worse then my converted units did, but I plan on taking them off at the next oil change and putting a rubber washer under the stainless washer and lock nut to see if that will seal up the seepage.
