Iím almost done with rebuilding my Rally 200 (fifth time in god not too many years) and the cylinder to case gasket is covering a port on the clutch side of the case. Should I trim this out of the way? Or leave it as is?

trim it away. it's blocking the port from doing its port-y thing

Thatís kinda what I was thinking, but couldnít recall if this was some sort of sick Italian design gremlin.

On the 74 200 I just did, there were three port openings in the case but the stock cylinder only used one and the gasket fit that. Check the cylinder.

Good catch! The cylinder only has one port opening.
