I always enjoy those parts lists that come with prices! To think that prices were considered stable enough to do that. The universal magneto coil was $7.50.....quite a bit considering how long ago that was.

Well, more serious then I thought. The head bolts are not missing, they are broken off. Yup 5 of them, not sure I can dig out all of them!
I’ll try Doug Penn to see if he has crankcase, but any other suggestions?

Before you put much work into it, I would suggest doing a compression check. If I remember correctly, around 75 psi and up is good. 85 is better. Compression under 70, and you will have a hard starting motor, as well as one that won't idle down.
I v'e only found one TN with a good powerhead over the years, and many that are worn out... due to high hours, or running them 50/1.
