    Skip the Chinese POS. Look for a Rowe, but also consider bench centers which show up in industrial auctions and sales from time to time. And old H-D truing stands are good, but limited in width, like...

    I was able to dig into my notes, so here you are:

    Of course, these motors use mostly bolts, with the only through stud being between the cylinders.

    On the left, you have two, 3" bolts at front...

    No! Do not block off the pressure relief. But it would be good if you could redirect the excess oil outside the motor to cut the volume in the cam chest.

    Maybe not enough, if you also have a feed pump delivering more oil. Does the excess oil from the pressure relief on the feed pump dump oil into the cam chest? If so, that volume of oil may be...

    If one head is getting warm and the other is not, you more than likely have an ignition problem. First, put fresh plugs in it. If that doesn't cure the problem, look at the points, coil, and plug...

    You have had this problem for a long time. Are you sure your breather tube does not leak? It would seem that if it drips oil constantly, that it is not sealed up. It is a separate tube, like a...
