Default Build a 84" shovel.

I have a S&S 74" and want to get 84" so my understanding is get 4 5/8 flywheels and bore the jugs 0.60 over and run 80" pistons is this correct?

4 5/8'' arm is nice, but 4 3/4'' arm is even nicer.

Stay with a mild cam, and it will last close to stock, if you don't twist it past 6000 very often. I got to 70,000 with a 4 3/4'' by running a stock cam. Cam wouldn't let me rev over 5300, still would run off on the smaller twinkies.
