    There's a tone screw on the power pack on those horns. It's the little one off to the side, on the back.

    That's the way it is supposed to be. The top nut fits inside the tree, and is clamped by a cross bolt. Sounds like you are OK.

    Any big twin tree should fit any big twin type Paughco frame. Even the mid-'80s XLs have the same length stem. Something doesn't add up here.

    That may be one of the balance rings that were sold for a while. How much good it would do out on the ends of the studs is an open question.

    Yes, that is the normal set-up. You can improve clutch action (in my opinion) by installing a RamJet retainer, or actually one of the clones of this piece. Drag Specialties offers one that I use, and...

    Should be an easy swap. You can even use the newer ball bearing wheels with some custom axle spacers. Lots of those mags out there, so should be cheap to do.

    Go up on your air bleed size in increments. Because it is an air jet, a change of .004 - .006 is reasonable. You may not have to go to .060, or you may need to go larger. Just part of tuning.

    I believe that is the date the case was cast, so it's probably a '63 transmission.

    By drill holder I mean a little round pin vise that you can clamp the drill bit in and turn with your fingers. That is what you want to use when drilling out jets, and the air bleed too.

    Clean it good and paint over it. That's about your only choice. I would not use chemical stripper on an assembled motor.

    At least as far back as '80. My '80 FLH had the cases and inner primary powder coated black. It is not a wrinkle finish. If yours had a wrinkle finish, I don't think it was factory applied.

    It's powder coat, and it don't come off easy. I just stripped a set of '82 cases by glass beading and there were times I wish I had never started on them.

    You would probably need a wider spacer on the right, like the standard -86A spacer from the wide hubs. They are .73 - .75 wide. The left side spacer is closer to 1/2 wide. Both spacers are 1.125 OD....
