67-69 xlh cases only: ok for elec. start.
69 earlier xlch, definetly not worth chopping cases.
I would bet if you did convert, it would be the ONLY one ever done in history, though.

apparently there is a guy on the XLF who can help do the opposite.

remove the starter hump from a humped case and allow older oval primary cover placement.

Find a 67 or later XLH motor. A complete rebuild would be easier than conversion. I'll consider buying your Early XLCH motor if interested.

I can see doing the opposite, but to add the lump....no. Those cases are too scarce to change into something much more common.

I don't get the XLforum comment?

Anyway, not quiet as easy as using a starter hump off a set of cases, welding and machining,That doesn't sound all that easy to me.
You'll need a different mainshaft, clutchgear, clutch rods, clutch basket, clutch hub, sprocket cover, all the starter stuff, ect.
I still say, I doubt its ever been done, no reason to, when the XLH cases allow for a starter.
It would be sacrilegious now a days to wreck a good set of early cases.
