A lot of people get away with it on parade machines, but obviously the factory thought it important enough to do a lot of expensive engineering. The end of the slinger presses against a brass 'funnel' into the breather tube chamber that is spring loaded for a good seal. The slinger centrifuges out the oil before it can drool out over your exhaust pipes. The gears are readily available, and can even be made to fit your 12v system when you realize why they call them '32evil' generators. (Kieckbusch's Revenge)...Cotten
