Default any sealing in the oil-filter-unit?

Lately, i am trying to do some pre-season-adjustments...

As i cant resist to have a look for the valves and the lifters,
i try to take off the side-cover.

Never did that on this engine...
I am pretty sure that i will have to screw off this nut
and im pretty sure that this has to be leak-free once
its re-assembled.

Any sealings behind that nut or how is it sealed?
(got to prevent that oil is pressed thru there - right?)

Thank you

Have a great day
Christoph

Please dont send me to the HAMB

Christoph, don't remove that nut it will be unnecessary. You will have toi remove the small brass nut under it. This fitting leads to a tube which is inserted into the feed tube on the bottom of the valve chamber.
