    Optional on most years, standard on the '71 & '72 FX and the Low Riders (FXS) through '84 I think.

    Just use the punch that you are drifting the pin in with. Move over half the hole and upset the top of the bushing with a light blow.

    I like the Dyna S as well, have them in both my bikes. But like anything electronic, they do fail. They will usually manifest an intermittent miss after the motor is warm, and sometimes do stop...

    The VOES diminishes or eliminates the tendency to spark knock in hot weather.

    If you are going to eliminate the VOES, grounding the VOES wire from the module is the correct way, as you have done....

    Check the VOES for a vacuum leak, for electrical function, and that it is grounded. Your bike is at the age where the VOES start to fail.

    The measurements from the manual for positioning these rims are only good for the OEM factory rims. For anything else, I have found that centering the rim between the spoke flanges on any of these...

    An attempt was made to do that on the pinion side to control crank flex in race motors. I don't think it proved successful. On the old big twin fuel motors they do away with the pinion bearing and...

    Yeah, I'm a machinist too, and one of the things my old boss often said, was, don't reinvent the wheel. Before you cut up a good case, get a '58 - '69 left case so you can see what is involved. The...

    You would be better off mating a '58 - up generator left case to your right case if you really want the Timken bearing.

    According to Palmer's, your frame with the early pan top motor mount and the rounded horn mount tabs would be a late '51. And the story attached to it is just a story.

    The '48 crank is located by selected thrust washers between the flywheels and the case races on each side. The tolerance is only a few thou, so I would say it's precise. The early crank bearing...

    After seeing your pic, I think you would be better off keeping the motor mount and grafting the later frame aft of that. Not least because the shape of the frame tubing is very different for the loop...

    That Timken bearing set-up is very strong, good for a couple hundred HP, easy. It also controls crankshaft end float, which makes setting up the bottom end a little easier. BUT, your early case has...

    If your cast-in insert is tight in the case, your best course of action by far is to keep the straight roller set-up it came with.

    The step on the back side of the old spacer is wear, because it runs against the aluminum case on the '77 - '79 transmissions. In my opinion, using 80W90 or 90 hypoid gear oil will help minimize this...

    Note: you mentioned the manual for '78, so I took from that, that the bike is a '78. My mistake maybe.

    You would put that on me!

    '77 - '79, spacer is the same dimension as the earlier spacer, but without the key slot, so no key is used.

    '80, maybe late '79, and '81,a new seal and spacer. Also,...

    Slide a 1/4 straight screwdriver blade under the seal and twist. Should pop right out. Just use a little care and it will be fine.

    And oil the new seal on the outside to facilitate installation. ...

    Fully charged AGM battery = 12.8V. If a new battery reads only 12.0V, it is at 50% charge or less.
