I don't know.
I have been checking if the oilhalf of the tank is getting hot after a long hard ride, but it never does.
Maybe the performance of the original pump is so poor that, the amount of hot oil returning is so little so the cooling effect of the slipstream is greater.
If that is so, it will change with a more powerful pump.

Now the charger is mounted, It's hard if you want both function and good looks. changed the bolts to the same style as the camcover bolts. Much better.

Looks good, will that chain length be an issue without and idler/tensioner? Would hate to see what happens if it jumps off at full noise?

I think that would be a wise move.

Both the pump and the tensioner.

Can't wait to see the plumbing.

I don't see that it will loose it's tension over night or nowhere fast. Soo if i think it's loose i can raise the charger with shims.
The chain is extended by an half link, so i don't have shorten it by a full link then its to loose to be shimed.
Did anyone make any sense out of that?

Anyway, this bike, if completed, is not an trouble free daily driver. It has never been during my ownership. I spend about an half hour before or after each ride checking that everything is ok. That way i don't have had nany mecanical failures so far.

What bike ever has been completely trouble free. If they are, then they are not ridden enough in my opinion.

Where are you stickin the carb?

Hi, cool bike. Will you try it out on A-Bombers old style weekend, or some other places this summer?
Just so others can watch it live.

I just mean that i can get away with solutions that will never work on my daily driver car. If i have to raise the bonnet on that stinki'n thing more than twice a year it has been a bad year.

I am just wondering what type of intake system you are planning, is all.

Blow through?

No Draw through, I know it's no good but it will look better. would have choosen blow through if i had fairing to hide it behind

Mecanical fuel injection would be bad ass like hilborn or kugelfischer but not in this version of the build

Today i spent the day fiddeling with the carb to charger mount and cutting and widening a dresser's front fender to use as my rear fender. i think this fender is a keeper.
But It will be hell to make that manifold shiny...

I love it!

What about a lake injector? Might be hard to come by.

That setup you have will work fine. Might need a primer to start cold.

Cool down, It's still winter here, and a lot of work left to be done.
Today i striped down the SU before cleaning and modification. I've got an old paper about modifying these carbs to work without fuel pump.
