Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

You know what works real fuckin' good on a Harley chopper?

A drum brake.

If the olds won't be the hard-line traditionalists, then I'll step up and take that on these broad shoulders. Fredo,...

Re: Disk Brake Conversion on Wishbone Frame

Fredo, do you have any interest in making that mechanical rear work correctly? 'Cause to me, that's the easiest and cheapest.

And they work fine if they're not all fucked up.

Re: A quality Bates-type headlight

I use a Paughco on my Shovel. Seems solid enough.

Re: Shovelhead cams

Yeah, I suppose that's true. I guess I was just thinking that unlike a V8, you'd sort of have to assemble, degree, remove, move gear, reinstall, and recheck.

Not that much work if you're not in a...

Re: Shovelhead cams

That's slick; never thought of using something like the lash check pins for degreeing.

The only thing that sucks is you never actually know what "heads up" is for a cam unless you have some others...

Re: A lifetime project

A Phillips head and a flathead screw on the same points cover?

You're a monster.

Good work. Bike has some real neat bits on it. That hub looks like a ton of work.

No, they're press-fit and that's it. No key. I actually don't know how the hell I'd keep 'em aligned right other than scribing a mark...

Re: Shovelhead cams

What kind of results have you seen when degreein' 'em, John? Pretty close to true heads-up, or are they off?

Just curious. I know it's a matter to consider when swappin' cam gears.

Re: shovelhead clutch

Two does the job, and in the modern world, broader coverage with fewer SKUs usually yields surprising savings at scale.

Re: Shovelhead cams

You're saying the LSA is too narrow in those? I would think detonation would mostly be a CR issue, and I would also think hi-alky gas would keep ping at bay, not encourage it.

I just always...

Re: Shovelhead cams

A&J are my go-to grinds for stock-ish street Shovels equipped with solids and should be similar to your F, IMO.

Re: Case stud question

Second Joe's advice... when I do case or trans studs, I clean threads with a Q-tip dipped in a capful of Brakleen, then let it sit for a bit to evaporate off.

Re: Shovelhead pushrods

So I took out a catalog. First, what I assumed was evidence of a rubbing pushrod appears to be an oiling galley, so my apologies. Your lifters might be fine.

If you have an S&S kit, I see no...

Re: Shovelhead pushrods

Sifton as we know it is no longer in business. V-twin bought the rights to the name and now it's offshore stuff of not-so-awesome quality.

Your lifters are neither solid conversions nor...

Re: Shovelhead pushrods

You should probably be aware S&S sells three types of pushrod.

There are solids. These are not adjustable.
There are adjustables. These are, unsurprisingly, adjustable. Useful for taller jugs, as...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

Right on. Like I said, I was just writing down points I considered in the hopes it may help some future chopperer figure out what he bought at the swap meet.

Re: 41 el

Popping the jugs off really is not a big deal. Read your manual, see if I'm lying. You can certainly reinstall the rings and jugs after you replace the base gaskets with fresh ones. You really don't...

His intake is still leaking by his own admission.
