    Many times keys need to be fit to shafts. I find most keys on H-D need to be thinned slightly so they fully bottom in the keyway. You can thin them by rubbing on a coarse bench stone, or sandpaper....

    On a decent runner that leaks, you need to look at the breather gear and the crankcase breather hose.

    If the motor makes decent power, and doesn't smoke or knock, just replacing the gaskets and...

    You do realize that the cups are a press fit? Two or three thou press, unless the frame is stretched. You will need to drive them in, or draw them in with a tool made for the purpose.

    You can run the motor as long as you please with the regulator unplugged from the stator. That bit of advice from a manual is just BS.

    Quick and dirty way to check the stator for output is to hook...

    The evo motors all mount the same, and apart from a few details, are functionally the same, '84 - '99. In the evo big twin line, the later the motor, the better.
