I have a lifan 125cc that I am trying to rebuild
Can anyone tell me this bolt that sits next to the oil drain plug?
And is it possible to spring a leak from here? this is the gear shifter side
Thanks in advance

cam chain tensioner bolt and associated parts. Made up of parts # 6,7,8,13, and 15 in the Honda diagram shown below.

It will leak oil if the crush washer is worn, distorted, or missing.

From the looks of your pic above, that isn't the only place leaking oil...

Thankyou for your reply I really appreciate it.
I know there's a fair bit wrong with it unfortunately

I would degrease and clean the entire engine, let it dry after a mild rinse, and then start it to see exactly where it is leaking oil, and go from there.
