Re: XLCH horseshoe oil tank replication

Upon re-installing the top, my ham & egg welds looked too "good" compared to...

Re: Front wheel in the back

As long as there is enough meat on the drive flange to open it up from 5/16" to 7/16" bolts, you should be fine.

Ive done it a few times with laced wheels and it worked well.

Re: Panhead left crank seal leak - please help!!

This approach relies on the theory that the lapping/grinding/cutting compound will embed itself into the hardened steel checkball and then cut the soft cast body material. This is not what happens....

Re: nosecone panhead

The seat post tube and top motor mount will thank you for that!

I'll never forget the ride up to Laconia with you on your cone-pan and Paul on El guapo.

That's funny because that bike/engine was not well received on this board when I first joined in 2007.

I posted a photo of it and was called a troll and a douche. Another guy said it was...

Re: Sporty rear drum brake

Could be done homestyle, but around these parts all the old shops used to have an Ammco brake lathe and an arc grinder.

Re: Sporty rear drum brake

Arc grind the shoes such that the middle of the lining contacts before the leading and trailing edge.

You'll see a huge improvement.

Re: damn rear blake won't stay bled? any ideas?

Are you losing your "prime" just from sitting stationary or are you moving/rolling the bike at all?

If rolling, check for warped rotor.

Re: Shovelhead con-rod end play

0.03" is thirty thousandths. I'm going to assume that by "axial", you mean side to side play.

The spec on a new build is .006" - .010" side to side. I have had new builds that the side to side...

Re: Knuckle - Loose Wristpin Knock?

Re: Knuckle - Loose Wristpin Knock?

How are you able to use a reed breather in the knuck?

Doesn't it need the timed hole in the stocker to to pull topend oil out?
