    D,
    You do maintenance in the transportation sector (as do I). You are exempt.

    I have seen several letters issued to essential workers (my wife being one) so maybe you need to write yourself a...

    What D is trying to show you is that the pinion gear has a timing mark that must line up with the timing mark on the #2 cam. Where the pistons are is IRRELEVANT.

    45cu.in. flatheads and big twin (74 and 80cu.in.) flatheads are distinct and separate product lines. I think that is where your confusion in asking the question lies.

    If the motor has been assembled, and it was done by someone competent, you need only replace the existing manifold with the new one.

    1) You were lucky to get as far as 40K.

    2) Lack of oil is not the problem. The breather gear throws so much oil on the cam and tappets they are drowning in it.

    A VOES switch will probably help it, if it does not already have one. Because of the lazy combustion chamber, an aggressive advance curve will give best results.

    These transmissions are dead simple to set up if you follow the directions in the manual. The most difficult part is setting the end play for the two shafts. That requires a dial indicator and is a...

    C,

    A 48T flat rear sprocket can be had from Drag Specialties, part # DS-325354. It is equivalent to HD part # 41470-86 according to my notes.

    The flat sprocket you need is for about a '90 model XL (right before they went to the belt). I'll try to remember to get you a part # later. The dished sprocket you have is correct for your '80 XL,...

    Yes! This is a must. You can dress the pads with bench stones and a little elbow grease. No special fixture needed. I have a similar set-up but many times just dress them by hand with stones.
