For the record, the star wheel access cap is the same thread diameter/pitch as an oxygen sensor. so if you ever screw up the cap screw, you can use a O2 test port plug to replace it.. I did on mine, just because it was a 19mm hex-bolt head, rather than an allen-style..
stock plug on left, O2 bung plug on right..
why i replaced it...
Governor Spring assembly - broken down:
governor spring access screw removed, exposing only access point to the spring assembly shown above:
