You're going to find that modern auto axles and flanges are one piece. The servi has the tapered axle end with a woodruff keyed hub. Two pieces. If I were to take a wild guess I'd look at something...

Re: M88 versus M51

They both use the same manifold. The M88 is a military carb and has non adjustable jets, to keep the military guys from fiddling with them. It is the correct one for a restoration. The M51 has ...

Re: Risers on Inline Springer Rear Legs

Not sure which is structurally superior. I once used the studs threaded directly into the tubes. Didn't really like the look or the final placement of the bars. I switched to a top clamp with ears...

Re: 1942 Harley WLA rebuild

Have you checked the calibration of your measuring device lately? Kidding. The 1" dimension is the diameter of the inside of the carb measured in the area where the venturi is fitted. The venturi on...

Re: 1942 Harley WLA rebuild

To answer the original question, the M-18 is a Servi car 1" carb that uses the smaller diameter and longer runner intake. The smaller diameter carb and manifold gives the 45 a bit more bottom end...

Re: Juice drum rear with foot and hand levers?

If I was going to try this I'd try to figure a way to hide and plumb in a line lock solenoid. Then use a horn button for the switch. You could hide the wire inside the bars that way. Or not.

Re: Need help with my stroker shovel build

I'm in the planning stages of stroking my 45. After doing the research I've decided that I'm going with stroker pistons rather than having to monkey with plates, Valve covers, etc. Just seems cleaner...

Re: VintageChop 47 knucklehead rebuild

I believe the Buco hard bags like these were introduced mid to late 1950's and produced for another 10 years or so. Earlier Buco bags were soft leather. As for the cut outs, could be for fitment on a...

Re: front wheel help

Man, that looks pretty tight for anything other than a spool or a mini drum of some sort. It appears the the rocker studs and nuts on the inside reduce the clearance another 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Making...

Re: Harley 45 Footboard Lever Bushing

If you look closely you can see some knurling on the pressed in piece. Doesn't look like a standard slip fit bushing to me.

I've checked out my footboard lever on the servi car as it's very sloppy. The bushing looks very worn, the pivot doesn't. Looking at my factory parts list exploded diagram and such it only shows the...

Re: What to do with a NOS Larry Howard Award Cycle finned timing cover?

At the time so many of these guys were local, as the scene was pretty small. There are probably thousands of unknowns that contributed to the sport. If they didn't make a hit at one of the larger...

Re: Harley Flathead WL45 - new to it and need some tips shifting, breaking etc.

o.w's right about properly adjusted linkage and finding the gears by feel. The holes for the gate should be there under the paint. If you're lucky they are covered and filled with bondo rather than...
