Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

I can't blame the guy I bought it from though. He purchased it from the people who rebuilt it. He told me what he knew about the engine, he even let me pull the heads off the engine, and he let me...

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

That can be frustrating. I can admit that I don't know everything and I'm OK with sharing my learning process with others so they can avoid making the same mistakes that I have.



Yes so true!...

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

Ok guys I finally got to the bottom of this issue and yes it was pretty simple. I decided to borrow a nice Brown and Sharpe Micrometer rather than the digital Chinese calipers. Then I measured all my...

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

I haven't meant to leave everyone hanging on this but I've had family in town and had no time to work on it.

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

Yeah Jaws I agree with you but I've checked the rotating assembly everyway I know how, I've measured all my bearings with a good caliper, I've measured my races, and I've eliminated any other parts...

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

I found a guy about 20 miles away who has the lapping tool for the cases. I am going to give him a try. I feel confident that my flywheels are true. Thanks for giving me some other things to check....

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

This was while rotating with the rods.
I agree with what your saying and I did keep that in mind, but its defiantly more than just that. The end play in the assembly becomes stiffer as well. Thanks...

Re: Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

Ok geezer, I checked a few things. It has new connecting rods.

The end play of the big end of the rod is within specifications. Measuring it to the best of my abilities with a feeler gauge it...

Panhead. Stiff spot in rotating assembly

Hi guys, I bought a '49 panhead engine last winter. Although the motor was claimed to be rebuilt in the 1980's I decided to disassemble and inspect it before I start it up. So far everything has been...

Re: Star hub vs Mid star

I'm jumping back a bit here but this struck my curiosity.

I use a WC 9005 wheel cylinder (which I believe is a 1" bore rather than the original 1 1/8" bore) on my mid star rear brake. I use the...

Re: Tube bender recommendation

I have a JD2 model 3. I really like it
One of the reasons I chose this bender is that it's very common and I have some friends that also have it. We can share our different dies that way.

Re: lacing 16" rear rim - help!

I just laced a couple 18s the other day. Make sure you didn't tighten the nipples more than a few turns on the side you just did. I stack magazines under the rim to try to center the rim with the...

Thanks for the input guys.
