Re: Muffler clamps for early shovelhead

I think you've just got a case that some simple adjustment and a use of spacers will address

I used this clamp on the pipe to the frame

Re: Muffler clamps for early shovelhead

I used these are 3 1/4 clamps from VTwin. Used a 1/2 spacer on the bolt to hold it off the oem mounting bar. Everything matched up.

Re: Shovelhead cams

So, does the timing get set to a different % from the OEM H grind, if you've installed an A, A2, F or J cam ?

unequal exhaust pressure

Got a question about an 80" shovelhead exhaust pressure at the end of the pipe. The front cylinder seems to have slightly more 20-30% more pressure at idle then the rear cylinder. (Not an actual...

Re: Shovelhead pushrods

Hydro or solid, the rods come out if the are adjusters are turned all the way in and an it off the cam lobe.....hydro will need 30 minutes or so to drain out but no need to open anything else.

Re: Anyone have any cool SWINGARM FL pictures?

Thanks, I've changed out the floorboards for a set of earlier oval HD boards since the photo.

Just small mods. The seatpost was lowered, lower narrow bars, cam, solid lifters, and some repop...

Re: new lifters seem to have caused smoking cylinder

Is it possible the blown tappet roller could have been hammering away long enough to cause the damage and has nothing to do with the new lifters and adjustment?

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

Spent the morning going through the cone. No German bearing, cam is good, seals good, tappets and block are tight, no modifications in the oil passages, flats facing each other (inward) push-rods...

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

Understood, less then 20 minutes run time on the cam and lifters, everything looks clean, except the shitty lifter.

Testing the lifter, the ball valve fails, sometimes open, some times closed....

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

It's a '79, 80 inch. I'm new at this.... why would I open the cone again to replace a lifter? Can't I just take the block out and see both roller tappets and lifters?

I had the cone off prior to...

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

that wasn't the plan. I was kinda hoping I'd just pull the tappets out of the block to find out I F-ed up and put one in facing the wrong way.

On the bright side..... I guess I got a bad lifter?...

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

Can't collapse the intake lifter. Been sitting under tension, first time for 30 minutes and now for 6+ hours. I guess it will eventually leak out?

Re: Bent valve...maybe...need some advice

It's a shovel. I pretty certain that flats on the lifters were facing each other, but I could of messed up. Easier then pulling the heads.... I'll check.

Yea, going on the lift Saturday to check the valves.
