Air in the chaincase is not a problem. No oil in the chaincase is a problem

As long as you keep it topped up at all times it will be fine, but it’s probably an easy fix if you have a go.

If it's from the gasket face, Darrell Taylor does some lovely thick gaskets that compensate for minor damage and heat distortions really well. They've worked for me a couple of times.

Lambretta Upgrades do really nice gaskets in different thicknesses.
