Hi Dan
The gearbox cover is held on by sleeve nuts and located by two dowels.
You should not see the end of a threaded bolt coming through. Either I am forgetting something, or you are missing a special nut.
You need to give more specific info about location to help.
Generally there should be no problem about sealing it, but if you are missing a nut, then that should seal it and add security.
As regards chains. threading chains up is a “Character building exercise” and when you can do it by dint of monumental self discipline, without sweating or kicking the cat, THEN you will have passed the test.
Whatever other low balls life will send your way, can be dealt with easily by a battle hardened Scott owner.
Courage, my friend!
