I am working on a ’27 Sport Squirrel at the moment. I vaguely remember a person here on the forum that ws repairing cylinders damaged from corrosion.
At the top of the cylinders there is 2 different fittings that I found under the cylinder coolant cover. In the 3rd picture you can see there is a washer on the left and a gland nut of sorts on the right.
Any recommendations would be greatly apprecaited
Pictures for fun…

It looks as though you need a new pair of candle sticks (the threaded bushes that take the spark plugs). These screw into the top of the cylinder and are available to take either 14mm or 18mm plugs. You will also require packing washers/seals to go between the candle stick and water dome.
One of the several criticisms of this new website was that photos of high definition could not be accepted. Your pictures show very fine detail. I wondered from what camera or phone you took your photos from as they have fine detail and obviously were accepted on the posting. We do want more like this and increasing activity. Would also be nice to know any movement on solving missing features and easier use on the website.

Sorry I mis understood
I took the pictures on the “free” phone I get here at Metro PCS that has a 5 megapixel camera with lots of scratches on the lense.. our budget phone service in the states.
From there my phone automatically uploads them to my google photos account in the free format meaning the already poor quality photo is further made worse
I log on to my imgur account and upload the photos
Then I used the “huge thumbnail” html copy/paste option and insert the link directly into the text field and blamo! Pictures posted
The attachment method specific to the forum software is common to most forums and not fantastic. I try to avoid using them if at all possible.
I have contacted LA Sleeve here in California and the response I received is promising. I sent pictures and dimensions. From here I am waiting for their machinist to contact me back for a yay/nay
