It's not a G8 you have bought but a Mod 8 L/Weight. I can't place that part at all on a L/W.

yes you are correct its a model 8 lightweight, I have one thin bolt missing from the engine cradle but that bolt has 2 small bushes on it, and its the only bolt left in the box, maybe somebody just tossed it in as a replacement
