Re: My Shovelhead is ticking when NOT running

Sure sounds like a sticking valve to me. Maybe you could kick it over slowly and see if you get play in the pushrods and if they tighten up as you hear it clicking. A cylinder leakage test would be...

Re: My Shovelhead is ticking when NOT running

I wonder if a valve is sticking in the guide.. Maybe rusted from sitting?
That might make the compression feel funny or impossible to start.

Re: pre unit rear axle spacer question

The inner bearing races should already be touching the distance spacer. Maybe try driving the bearings in a little more, especially on the rt side. Should not pull them in by tightening the nuts.

Re: pre unit rear axle spacer question

The spacer is there so you can place full torque on the nuts and will not bind on your bearings. Should bottom out on your inner bearing races without binding your bearings.
