From the service sheets we can now access:

Top center: Reaming jig for timing-side main bush and cam bush.
Top right: Bench Die holder for for sliding-tube top.

The othes, I think, may be from different models.

Hmmm,

This seems to blow wind to the need for line reaming the main bearing with the two crankcase halves put together!

Not really, I think. Back then, if the thing didn't fit right at the factory or the local shop, they could pull the bad bush and start over. No big deal. Now, it seems, we must pamper due to sparcesness of part, like new crankcases.

Check this out. The items in the photo are now for sale on eBay. I'm not bidding, so, no competition from me.
