Re: Musings on the SU carb

This will be a semi-useless comment relative to the root of the hard starting issue. But dear god, you've rigged up a fuel hose with an extra valve, so you can use an enema pump that you have to...

I'll second what some of have said, if you have those usable parts already and are cost conscious, any departure from that is just money you don't need to spend, for which you'd see nominal return....

Re: What pushrods? 1956 Panhead with STD Pan Heads?

If they use Panhead Rockerarms, you need panhead pushrods, but you still need to get the right set to match your tappets. Adjustable or not? What ball size?

I've only done a few heat cycles to date, enough to dial in timing and the carb a smidge, make sure oil is flowing, and that it's charging. I'm waiting on ONE part to make the shifter, which is lost...

Forks: my last few builds have been springers. And on my long road trip each spring, I'm frankly tired of the vibrating bars and the springer ride. So I'm looking forward to a glide fork for a...

I wanted the 41-46 tank trim, but didn't want to ruin the paint by welding mounts. This was my first time dealing with this trim, and hopefully my last. If there's a secret, I'd like to know it. I...

Aside from the motor, the most important part of a big flathead build is the tanks: it's the one thing you can't get in the aftermarket. I shopped, waited and waited for something that wasn't insane....

The exhaust came with the motor and was unfinished, but I kind of liked it. Although the front pipe certainly complicated such things as mounts and clearing generator and carb.

Now it was time for a carb. M51 linkerts aren't cheap, and I was also wondering if the fancy heads and cylinder reliefs wouldn't benefit from a different carb. I realize none of that may make any...

With the motor, came a 4-speed ratchet top trans in a nice '64 case. ratchet top is also oem, but I think the kicker cover is aftermarket (but no cracks...). The adjuster boss was shaved to fit in a...

Dan- I get the reasoning behind why it could be problematic, but I also can understand why it might be OK since the cylinder drain hole doesn't actually extend to the top oil ring. If it did, I...

Re: 46 U Bullneck Frame Question

My $.02, that's a v-twin Hallmark frame. Those are definitely welds (not brazed) on the neck. But if your neck forging has or is missing Die markings, that will pretty much tell the tale. If they are...

Very detailed, thank you. You've probably forgotten more about this than I will know. And we're agreed on all accounts, except that it sounds like I'm more inclined to believe this will work well....
