Re: What is this buddy seat from?

That's most of the shit you'll need; good to have.

You'll need buddy pegs and peg brackets, of course.

As far as missing things for the seat, it depends what you are putting it on. That looks...

Re: What is this buddy seat from?

...and there is a bunch of other bits and pieces you need for the helper spring assembly.

I just got finished doing this conversion on a bike, what a pain.

Re: What is this buddy seat from?

Looks like standard HD to me... it doesn't have the Pan-era reinforcement plate at the back, so either repop or Knuck.

What isn't lining up?

Re: MM74E Problems No fire.....

I would be curious to hear what happens, if you got time to fill us in on the gory details.

Dave's a pretty helpful feller.

Re: Looking for pics of a knuck

Interesting extension job on that springer rear leg. Tapers real quick.

You don't have a spare coil you might be able to swap in, do you?

Re: Repair Pan case cracks around cam bushing?

That thing is a shitshow. Mike does great work. He is as close to a wizard as you can ask for. Call him and he'll give you a timeline. He's a good friend. If he says he can do it, his word is bond.

Nothing fancy, just a ground box section. Useful for Flathead cylinder base nuts. I usually pull the genny, but if you toss a bend in this wrench, that's not...

Re: The designated springer ID thread

I just sent pics of that front leg to a buddy the other day. That thing is neat. He's extending an I-beam right now, and that one popped into my head.

I wonder if that's not some sort of flat...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

Maybe I'm a bit stupid, then. Tipping this bike to either side does not assist in getting it started.

A float bowl with a tickler for SUs exists. Maybe I'll see if I can't scare one up.

Re: 1977 ironhead battery??

If you measure and such, you can find common battery "footprints" and terminal locations and find the one that works for your custom battery box. I can help you with that if needed. Personally, I...

Re: Musings on the SU carb

The bike's not really a hard starter, it just needs its mix richened like every other ICE on the planet.


I can use an enema pump (as Ratso said) to mystify onlookers and shock friends. Who...

Re: Panhead 4 speed transmission push rod question? Is this a strange set up??

Jay,

That's prudent. Assuming your adjuster is about halfway into the pressure plate when the clutch is adjusted, you're probably good. Your pushrod does not show wear, bluing, or scoring,...

I can't see your picture of fibers and steels so I can't comment on that. Total stack height could absolutely affect what length clutch pushrod you need to get adjusted correctly within the range...

You're smoothing the area from intake valve to piston and piston to exhaust valve to help straighten the path the air/fuel mix (and what later becomes the exhaust) has to travel.

From a practical standpoint, I can tell you that has never worked for me.

But I am interested in learning what I may be missing from a theoretical one. I believe a tickler only works on the HIF...

Re: 80" Super Magnum motor build
