Re: Mag help/woes

A few more questions. Was your Pan running well before the mag? Were you able to start it easily? Are you using solid-core plug wires. Is point-gap around .015-018 and plug gap also .015-.018? New...

Re: HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

I got around to mounting it. I messed with the air pressure up and down. When it's just high enough that it doesn't bottom out when I slam on it it feels amazing. Nothing like a stock spring seat-...

Re: HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

Hmmmm. What is the little air reservoir for? On-the-road adjustability maybe? The truck seats I've had would hold air in the spring for weeks or months if the valve was tight.

Re: HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

Great info MOther. I hadn't anticipateed the side-to-side wobble- the hinge definitely needs to be tight. I tried a mock-up with a sloppy narrow tee and got 3" side-to-side. A tighter yoke really...

Re: HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

2nd Police seat- I even re-used the Police seat tee on this one with very little modification.

I've got 3 old "air springs" at work from old semi-truck seats. They collapse to about 2" and go out...

Re: HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

Great insights. I've stripped a couple of late HD pans and recovered them with carpet padding and a piece of an old jacket- ran them on my Chiefs. Very comfortable but the pogo/ spring setup had to...

HD Police style airbag on Knucks, Pans, or Chiefs

Have any of you messed with the late model HD airbag setup or something similar? I've heard from a few guys that it's the most comfortable setup they've ever ridden. I'm all for comfort. It should be...

Re: strengthing broken cases

The main reason I needle scale aluminum is to get it back to "cast aluminum" texture but any stress relief would just be a little bonus.

Re: strengthing broken cases

That sounds right. Never given it much thought in this context but shot-peeling, media blasting, needle scaling an entire surface- all "strengthen" by eliminating stress raisers. Stress raisers are...

Re: So, I don't have a lathe...

Well done:-) I call the drill press at work "my redneck lathe". Try chucking it in a hand drill and shaping it on a bench grinder or belt sander. You can make some amazing stuff.

Re: 101 with early '20s hotrod motor update

Carb is a late '90s Keihin CV jetted for an 883 Sportster.

Front wheel is '60s BSA WM2-18. I picked it for the smaller hub.

Rear is '60s Triumph WM3-18 with a new India/Enfield (6" drum)-...

101 with early '20s hotrod motor update

Today's mockup pic. Motor and tank just set in- no bolts. A little more to do on brake drums and rear drag link. Next are fenders and boards.

Re: Clean up aluminum cases with motor assembled

To make all the aluminum on a project bike have the same lightly-oxidized natural look I spray it all down with chlorinated brake cleaner and let it air dry. After once or twice you literally can't...

Re: Scoutzilla

Yes same bike. I'm surprised how much interchanges.

A few "mods" were necessary but nothing drastic.

I drilled out the cam bushings for the bigger camshafts. Enlarged the cylinder flange...

Scoutzilla

It's been awhile since I updated pix on my hotrod 101 Scout. I just decided to put them here.

The motor and trans are done. Ended up a total mongrel. 1920-22 engine cases, 1930s Sport Scout...

Re: S&S Super B OR ?

I've had good luck with B carbs. I've run them with and without the Superbowl. I didn't care for the Superbowl. (accelerator pump bowl) I found the enrichner to be very effective on a kick only 74"...

Re: Taking a break- posing as "scoutbuilder"

The hole in the phenolic is to run a clear neoprene fuel line. The insulator plate virtually stops carburetor fuel-boil which can be pretty severe here at 7000 feet during...

Re: Taking a break- posing as "scoutbuilder"

Yeah, all said and done it bolts right on. Inner cam bushings were 3/8" I think 1920-21 so I had to drill them out but everything else fits. I've got NOS 741 lifts and will use stock Scout 1934?-48?...
