More questions for the experts

Hi,
I'm rehabilitating a '79 SF and could use some assistance from the experts here.

As we know the Special is "special" and has some unique features. Does anyone have a link to the parts drawings of the Special? I can find the "F" model drawings, but nothing on the "SF".

First the front brakes need work, I've sourced a new MC from Mikes, as well as new pads, steel braid hoses, and rebuild kits from other sources. New pistons from HVC are on order too. I want to replace the o-ring in the caliper mounting bolt assy, anyone know what size it is?

All the petcock rebuild kits I see are missing the drain plug screw sealing washers. Anyone know what size that one is? My 1980 Cymer manual does not give the exact size.

Thanks in advance. I'm also looking for a Special fork brace (I've posted in looking for parts too)

Sorb

78E is Standard only for that yr.
79F is Standard only
79SF is Special only
80G is Standard only
80SG is Special only
81H is Standard(Venturer) only
81SH is Special only
Then you also got 80-81 Midnite Specials(MNS).

As for the fuel bowl drain gasket, take that drain plug with you to a parts store and find either a fiber or copper washer for sealing....easy-peasy.

You're welcome, Sorb!

The Special's actually doing good, thanks, I had the center stand brackets and the tail pieces of the frame re-welded, now it's mostly just paint and reassembly. Te Deum.
