Most 'historians' see Indian as stagnant in development after the mid-'30s, leading to their demise: "Failure to mutate".

Linkert idle bleed slot question?

Folks,

Does anyone have any solid evidence how the idle bleed slot was cut into Linkerts? (See attachment)

It is deeper than any available modern .009" endmills can cut,

Indian Linkert question?

Can anyone tell me why post-'42 Indian Linkerts had a
"tit" on their idle bleed well caps, and H-D Linkerts did not?

Thanks in advance,

By "factor", I meant the fraction, or percentage of the total reciprocating mass that is counterbalanced by the flywheels.

H-D Flywheels for sidehack question: Factor?

Folks,

If a set of extremely heavy wheels is to be set up for sidehack duty,

Re: Flywheel Input 150-40/150-403 S&S rod
