.....that are used as emergency motor support if/when one of the 2 crankcase 'ears' fail. There are 9/16" threaded ends with 2 nuts per end and my dumb question is: do both nuts fasten outboard of the frame-hanging brackets and is one used as a "lock nut"?

Thank you Lorenzo. I couldn't find that thread. The discussion makes sense so I shall install a nut on either side of the frame rail "hangers". And I have an old mud flap nearly 1/4" thick that I'll cut about a 4"x5". Flap out with a 2"X2" hole for the oil drain plug. This rubber then will cushion the bottom of the crankcase over the belly strap. Wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving !!
