Re: Help!!!! panhead clutch help

If the basket has wobble, try the next set of holes. Two holes is fine and expected with the earlier Ram Jets.

How's your clutch hub lining look?

Re: First Start-up 1949 Panhead

I pull the plug wires and the oil return line and kick until I see oil flowing. That way, you can be sure you're plumbed up right. One less thing to worry about.

I also have a fire extinguisher...

Re: Powder or paint?

I've used both. Both are great in the right usage. Since you're gonna powder it, here's a few things I have learned:

Plug everything you don't want powdered, like anything threaded. Powder lays...

Re: 68 Generator shovel clutch slipping and tranny noise

And that crack by the brass pipe plug in the inner primary? That looks fucky.

Re: Condensers and Multi-meters? (Not sexy) lol

I'm going back to my salad days, but I was always instructed that given how much voltage is required to truly "test" a cap, you were money up swapping them out.

Unless your meter has a cap test...

Re: 80" Super Magnum motor build

That was a BF bike at some point. What makes you say 3V? I see four pushrods, and there's nothing making me believe one rocker is running two poppets.

Re: Strociek web artifact with old pics - Anyone know more?

Re: Clutch engaging hard - '59 Pan

Earlier trannies have a dripper that bolts to the mainshaft retainer plate; it's independent of the pushrod assembly. And the witch's hat IS the bearing.

That setup looks ostensibly like it could...

Re: Retorqued heads and bikes now running awful

To piggyback on that, this is why I always loosen the top motor mount before a retorque.

Re: Lets get the record straight, LOWBROW.

The Japanese were breaking the laws of moving units in the US; they were definitely dumping. That was proved unequivocally by Harley and others, and affirmed by the ITC. The Japanese steel industry...

Well Made In America chronicles how the AMF takeover came to fruition.

What federal aid are you talking about?

Re: Lets get the record straight, LOWBROW.

Yep. AMF bought and paid for the Evo. So many people are quick to deride them, but AMF dragged Harley into the modern age. A few books have been written about this very thing. Never mind they saved...

Re: Skinny swing-arm gennie shovel+pan chops

Not even close to what you're going for, but any time I hear the word "skinny," I am reminded of Rezi's bike.

Rezi's bike is skinny.

Re: Stroker question

That's true, John, they make some nutty, nutty cams. But last time I inquired with them they did not make anything for BTSV.

Re: One more Triumph Build

Similarly, I helped a friend do one in 9/16". Always looked too "fat" to me, and the tight bends didn't ever look right to my eye in that diameter stock.

If you were to fashion a more conventional...

Re: One more Triumph Build

Might just be the way I am seeing the picture, but that sissy looks slender... like 7/16" or so?

I think at that height that's gonna crack fast.
