Re: Diluting old gasoline

As a guy who worked a counter at some point many, many moons ago, a few thoughts.


The oil barrel never gets emptied when it's supposed to.
The store gets paid for that oil.

Re: 46 U Bullneck Frame Question

It's repop.

Look at the seat cross tube, where they socket into the upper seat stays (the top run of the hardtail.)

Those are brazed on every Knuckle frame, even the non-bullneck late 47s. The...

Re: su eliminater2 carb

Well... I am suggesting if you are lean you need a lighter spring (or none at all.)

I use one of these on a warmed-up 84" flattie, and I use no springs and a Marvel Mystery oil in the dashpot.

Re: Shovelhead Engine Identification

Finned, so early H-D. I may be speaking out of turn, but I can't recall seeing an aftermarket set that wasn't flat up there.

Re: su eliminater2 carb

The rears run richer due to the uneven firing order affecting the cylinder timing interval. It's not a bug, it's a characteristic of the engine layout.

Go read that little guide I did a while back...

Re: Shovelhead Engine Identification

S&S rods, too.

Could tell more about the heads if we knew if they had the center fins or not.

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: 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: 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.
