82 S&S restore

I have finished freshing up the engine. (351 windsor) It is ready to come out of stand ...trans is apart now, clutch packs are stuck together but pump and all internal hardware are good. I am posting some pics with the hopes of finding out how close to original it is. I think there is a cover missing that went over the elecrical components at rear of engine. Also I am not sure how the thottle return spring was mounted. One pic is the before
