Re: Engine identification help - stroker??

Those don't appear to be big bore cylinders. Look at the base near the nuts. On a big-bore set the wall would be very close to the studs and you'd likely have twelve-point nuts (smaller diameter) and...

Re: External residual pressure valve for juice drum

Seems like 10psi is the number that comes up most when researching residual pressure in drum brake systems.

Valves with 1/8" NPT fittings cost around $20.

I'd say go for it. You'll know if...

Re: Timing plug - One of those days

If you're the worrying type (I generally am) you might also apply some compressed air (low-med pressure) to the crankcase while you're drilling so the chips will come out rather than fall in.

Am...

Re: Case stud question

Nice.

For next time . . . don't run a tap down a hole where the threads are good. It only removes material and makes for a looser fit.

Buy a thread-chaser tap instead. These are for...

Re: shovelhead clutch

Agree on the shell retainer (ram jet).

A note for those worried about five vs three stud clutch hubs. . .

Most of the ram jet kits i've seen are cut for three stud hubs. If this is what you...

Re: shovelhead clutch

Some more to check . . .

If the steels are polished to a mirror finish and have oil on them, they are likely hydraulic locking to the frictions and not releasing cleanly when clutch is thrown out....

Re: Hydra Glide Front End

You have to force the damper unit (the "cup shape bushing") up into the fork tube to install the clip.

See the two oil holes at the end of the damper rod? You can use a long piece of wire through...

Re: Norton or how to not behave...

I like building, fixing, and riding motorcycles.

When I can't be on them, I like to think about them and talk about them.

I have no dog in the fight on this place. I love it and have derived...

Re: Motorcycle VIN inspections

I had three CHP inspections when I moved to California (Bay Area) four years ago.

Some points to consider:

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Hmm. I had posted about oil pumps but can't find it now . . .

If you can, replaced this pump with a later model "D" or "DD" pump (as identified by stamp on body/nose). These are doweled to ensure...

Re: SU Eliminater2 carb

Rivera's Eliminator II is not supposed to run ANY oil in the damper.

I just looked for my instruction sheet but couldn't find it. I'm certain the instructions that came with min said no oil.

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

It has been said that I'm a man of extremes and like to visit the ledge on both sides.

I wouldn't refute if given the chance.

Re: A properly tuned stock Panhead.......

No bullshit here.

Have owned a particular '64 panhead (totally stock) that will start within three kicks even after sitting for half a year.

I drew some oil passage ways on your pic.

Yellow lines are drilled passages.

You can see the rear feed fitting entering the head and leading to the center boss for the intake rocker arm. That...

Re: 1966 Bsa 650 on a budget

Those look like welch plugs to me. Look at the rocker arm feed bore. It's directly in-line with one of the plugs.
