    Those look like KB cast pistons, and they tend to be a little weak. Good buy on the heads. It sounds like you have someone who knows how to set them up, which is important, and so they should do well...

    The heads were OK, but no better than a mildly reworked H-D head, so hard to justify the expense. The intake cross section is good in those heads, and for the XL versions at least, there was a domed...

    No, you must use the 35070-80 if that is what your transmission needs (fits '80 and '81).

    While you are in there, check for wear on the mainshaft where the main drive gear runs. Wear there will...

    I've worked with a couple of sets of the Edelbrock heads. I don't know about the claim of 9 5:1 compression; you would need to verify by measurement. I do know that with almost any performance cam,...

    Your best bet is to keep the stock harness, if it's in good shape, or get a replacement harness. All you will be deleting is the turn signals, it sounds like, and you can do that at the rear fender...

    The differences are in the countershaft bearing style, loose rollers or Torrington, and the main drive gear bearing, again loose rollers or Torrington. It is possible to have a mixed transmission....

    ALL H-D big twin swingarm chassis have the rear wheel offset slightly to the left. The amount depends on the model. Disclaimer: that includes everything up to the middle of the twinkie era. I don't...

    The short answer to this question is that the two planes that are defined by the rims must be parallel when the bike is going down the road. If not, you will have handling and/ or tire wear problems....

    The big lo' release bearing is almost a must with any foot clutch, but especially a suicide style because the linkage rests against the bearing.

    Lower! The pin for the pull rod needs to be closer to the pedal pivot. Anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 the distance closer to the pivot will make it easier to feather the clutch.

    If your set-up is like so many others, it may help to move the pull rod attachment point closer to the pivot axis of the foot pedal. That makes foot movement less sensitive and makes clutch control...

    ^ This.

    The flat tubes are the earlier style, for the cork seals or the blue silicone replacements as in your pictures.

    The shouldered tubes are for o-rings and they began to be used around...

    On these H-D front ends, the LEFT spacer sets the position of the wheel in the fork. You must select a spacer that will center the wheel as best you can. I use old inside calipers to measure the gap...

    The grey wire is switched 12V from the ignition breaker. The white wire is power to the coil. Jump the grey and white wires to bypass the run/off switch.
    The above is from memory, may be faulty.

    For the uninformed, the viscosity rating of motor oils and gear oils are rated on different scales. As a reference, 90 weight gear oil has approximately the same viscosity as 45 weight motor oil.

    Ideally, that slip joint would be a close fit, but most aftermarket parts leave something to be desired. You can use high temp silicon sealer, but be neat about it. It will last for a while.
