    I think you are golden if you have a title that matches the frame number. I doubt anyone will look at it as closely as you yourself. Of course it varies state to state, but really the authorities...

    Jump on that. The larger rotor gives better braking, and that bracket is a BIG improvement.

    The holes for the bolts should be the same on both sides, 7/16+. It appears from the pics that lock rings and washers retain the seal spacers. If so, and the flanges are symmetrical as to the...

    What Farmall said at the end of his post #5.

    Standard compression for a shovel is only 8:1 or 8.5:1. Low compression is 7:1. In today's world I would not voluntarily build a low compression motor. We have decent pump fuel available.

    I would think the volume per revolution would be the volume within the outer gearotor minus the volume of the inner rotor. I should think that you could CC it and find the answer empirically.

    Yes, the motor mounts and so on are the same. The jiffy stand clearance thing applies to some years. The five speed transmission and the alternator are miles ahead of the evo four speed pieces. It's...

    The Dyna 2000 you mentioned will work on either motor. If you swap the complete motor, I think you will have to have a voltage regulator to match the new motor.

    Should be easy to mix and match any way you wish except of course the five speed transmission parts don't fit a four speed case, and vice-versa.

    It's probably corroded within the crimp, so getting it clean enough to solder might be tough. If you can manage that, I would use silver with a suitable flux for strength.

    If you are going to change motors it's a moot point. As D said, you can only bore the '72 - '73 cylinders to +.030, so they get used up. The head bolt pattern is different on the '74 and up 1000 so...

    I will echo D's sentiments above. But there are a few of us left who can and do rebuild ironheads from the crankpin up. It's just so freakin' expensive to do it that it is not cost effective. North...

    You can run the forks with no caps above the seals if the look is OK to you. (It's a classic look.) The later narrow front ends with the metal top caps, the caps are strictly cosmetic and aren't even...

    In addition to the list from farmall, I would add a valve adjustment. Many shovels have been converted to solid tappets, or some other non-stock tappet because the old originals are, well, old. A...

    Welding a tab to the caliper body risks distorting the bores, making the caliper unusable. Machining it so that a tab can be sandwiched into the assembly is a safer plan.
