Any ideas anyone on how to handle oil seepage from this breather?

On the pegs, I use the large factory pegs on a 3/4 bar stock drilled for the pegs. Then leave the bar run about 2 inches into the pegs, then spot welds on the top of the bar at the ends to line up the pegs. pegs still give some if you touch the road but as you said will not fold up, and save the bike from a lot of damage.

I've got a breather taped to 1/8 npt with a stainless swagelock fitting and a 1/4" stainless tubing.

Naww, not a hijack when it's on subject, and I asked that question, the old setup used to oil down the belt, want to avoid that...

Get yourself the earlier style breather with the 90* elbow on it(57 and earlier I think) cut the bend portion off but leave enough to attach a hose and run the hose down under the bike. Also make sure your chain oiler is turned off, I'm sure you already did that though

yeah that's why i pulled it off. It had a 2" piece of fuel line attached to it leaking right onto the belt which is why i changed it. I used a short piece of tubing that moved it off to the side towards the centre.
I just finished putting it back together, maybe i'll start a "re-build" thread kinda like this one. Always like seeing what everyone else is up to!
If i get a chance i'll pull it off and take a couple more pics for ya'.

That's the kinda info I love !!

Had a couple hours so ran up to the shop....
My buddy had a small cylinder hone that fit....
So, honed 'er nice and smooth and stuck the parts in....


And put 'er back on the bike...


Oh, I think I'm in love....


Gonna keep the bars here....
Do notice though, that with an allen and a box end, I can rotate those foot pegs up higher....


More Later....







OK, Later.... thinking on how I want to wire it....
One switch, a DPDT, neutral is off, rear is rear light only, tail is on to load the gen set
and have it productive, when I switch it forward and turn on the headlights.



This will be fun ~~~

Had a little bit of time today, and realized the front brake parts I fabricated had never gotten paint, so pulled off the caliper bracket and painted it...


I could have smoothed those rough spots, but the whole thing is hidden by the caliper and the fork lower leg, so nobody will ever see it...

And the rotor carrier also....



Little by little, gettin' there...

When I fabricated this disk brake hub adapter to fit the oem HD '62 front wheel hub, I only drilled and tapped for the five bolts. Now I'm wondering if I need to install the five studs, like the oem HD brakes use, see pix below...

It looks like over kill to me, but I suppose that if these five bolts were to loosen
and fall off, the studs would keep the brake from spinning, at least...
This setup was for drum brakes front and rear, but I suppose it's a good idea for my disk brake setup I'm adapting to this '62 front end...

This is the hub adapter I made, with the rotor installed:



I measured the studs on this rear brake drum, they average 0.455", a really odd size...
The closest fractional size is 29/64", or 0.453", which is pretty close...



I also checked metric , but it is about in the middle between 11 mm and 12 mm,
so I do not know where HD came up with this size...



I suppose I could drill and tap for a 1/2" thread, and use five 1/2" bolts that are threaded only enough to screw into the hub adapter, and turn the shanks down to 0.455" to fit the '62 HD wheel hub.

Am just thinking it over for the moment, no decision yet...

Factory drum front brakes didn't have those lugs, only the rear did.

Good Info, Thanks....

Decided not to add the 5 dowel pins to my front disk brake hub adapter...
Reassembled the front wheel and brake with the freshly painted parts,
using blue locktite on the 6 rotor to carrier bolts and nuts,
and red locktite on the 5 wheel bolts...
It should be fine....


Put a new chain on, bought 104 links of O-ring chain, but I'll only need 100...


The chain comes too close to the back side of the clutch assembly...


I've ordered parts to replace this clutch pad on the hub, that should move the rest of the assembly away from the chain enough to have running clearance...

We shall see....
Aloha,
Willy

My new 12v generator came, and the new drive gear also came, but it is a sloppy, loose fit on the generator shaft, unacceptable! So looking for an OEM HD gear in order to try to get a proper tight fit...


The gear on my original 6v model 58R generator is in good shape, that generator originally came with this '62 FL as a "police special" harley, and has a spring loaded rachet mounted gear, and I'm leaving it on that generator for a future project...


Put a new O-ring chain on, 100 links fit perfectly with the rear wheel most of the way forward, but the master link side plate holes were way too small, by 0.010", no way that was going together, but I was able to drill out those holes to a 0.004" loose fit, which I think should be just fine!!


More later,
Willy

Been away from this project for a bit, but had some time yesterday, so put the magneto in, and found all kinds of clearance problems! The mag base is hitting things, and the mag itself is hitting the front exhaust pushrod....


A bunch more pix HERE if you want, I spent some time on this...
and still have to work some more on it....

More later, we're dodging hurricanes here on Maui, and I need a beer or three...
Aloha,
Willy

Had a little time to mess with the magneto today....

It's a tight setup, not a lot of room to mess with it, but I think I got it, I have this much room to move the magneto, full CW:


Full CCW:


And with the front cylinder in the ignition position, the points are just breaking open on the correct lobe in the middle of this available movement:


We shall see....
