    2000 rpm may not be enough to fully advance the mechanism. It's best to have someone rev the motor while you look at the mark. It will continue to advance, moving toward the rear of the hole, until...

    Are you sure of the timing mark you have identified as the advance timing mark? It should be a dot, low in the hole, on your '83, IF, and that is a BIG IF, the motor has the original flywheels. (On...

    The countershaft has an oring to seal it. The earlier transmissions with the cap did not have an oring originally, but of course a countershaft with oring could be fitted. Clean it good and use your...

    Those links are used to align the chassis. The motor, transmission, and swingarm are one piece, and the frame and front fork are the other. As long as the bike hasn't been wrecked, and the various...

    The caliper takes a 3/8-24 banjo bolt. The fitting is a 3/8 banjo 3AN 90 degree. The brake line is 3AN. The flare fitting on the short line is 3/16 inverted flare. It has a 3/8-24 thread. Wrench...

    Yeah, those things are thin, thin, thin. I wonder how many of them will end up broken, sheared off at the corner. Certainly a clever adaptation, but no thanks.

    Of the carbs in your box, the butterfly Keihin would be the easiest to tune on an evo. You will probably find the Bendix to be too rich across most of the midrange as they were best suited for a...

    There was a "dual smoothbore" carb setup available for shovels and ironheads back in the seventies (?) and eighties. It had dual 29mm carbs, but on a manifold that itself was fairly restrictive. They...

    One of those tank vent tubes is just a drain from the filler neck area to handle spilled gas. The other one, I think the one that is soldered up, is for an evap system that your bike might not have...

    You will have to fixture this frame very rigidly on the mill table, which might take some imaginative clamping. Then you can just drill or single point bore it out. It's just clearance, so no real...

    If you want to stick to single fire, you can find some mounts available for two of the Jap pattern Dyna coils. Whether those mounts will, in turn, fit your chassis, will be a matter of trial and...

    If you choose a Dyna S, DS6-1, that is the dual fire version and Dyna offers a 5 ohm coil for that. Andrews offers a 4.7 ohm coil that works well, too.

    I think that is the same material that I recommended. They are available as a five plate clutch as well.

    Glad you got it sorted out. A good shovel clutch is a pleasure indeed.

    Yes, start with the throttle cable slack and use the slide stop screw to set idle speed. Then adjust the idle mix and see if the idle mix screw ends up 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 turns out. If not, you have a...

    Should have been, or could have been, both. If the OP has paperwork to match the case, there should be no issue. If f. has no PAPERWORK, yes, he is truly well fucked.

    Wow. Where to begin?

    1) Using the throttle cable adjustment to set idle speed is very bad practice.
    2) You referred to idle mixture screws. There is one mixture screw and one idle speed screw...
