Hi all
Apologies if this has been asked before. I'm working on an older kit of a DML M1 & tge drive sprockets don't have the mud clearing holes. Any clues as to what size hole I need to drill to replicate them. I understand they're also oval in dhape - correct?

yup, oval. length should be about from inside the outer sprocket ring, about 1-1.5mm, to just before the end of that half, maybe about 2-3mm. you can find a walkaround on primeportal
