    Yep, maybe. That's why I said he could part it for more money. But that would just be wrong.

    Good. Like I said, with a bent valve your compression test would be at or near zero.

    The dent in the rocker box is from the pushrod end of the rocker arm hitting. I have had that happen even with...

    I can't tell from the pic, or even by eye many times, if the valve is seated or not, because you just can't see around the back side of the valve to the actual seat. The solvent test will tell the...

    With the rocker box on with pushrods, the valves won't seat until the tappets bleed off. (At that point you will be able to spin the pushrods.)

    If you have bent valves, the compression test should...

    Top sensor with three pin connector is the speedo pickup.
    The one behind the pulley is the neutral lamp switch.

    Nice picture!

    Yes, if that valve is not seated, it's bent. You are going to have to do more careful clearancing because it hit something sometime. Luckily, valves are cheap. I hope the guide is...

    Just my opinion, since you are in the South too. Like in the pics, right now, about $5K. I've seen several pans sell for that in the last few years, in roughly the same shape. You clean it up and...

    If the rim is the balance issue, the first thing to do is true up the wheel. That is basic. The rims are pretty uniform, except where they are welded together. But if there is radial runout, that...

    Ounces of weight to balance a tire is not uncommon. But it is unusual for a narrow front tire like yours to need that much weight. Cheap tires are usually worse as far as balance is concerned. I'm...

    As long as you prime the feed side, and you did, because you have oil pressure, you are OK. The return side will take care of itself as soon as enough oil accumulates in the cam chest to cover the...

    Thirty seconds at a time is not enough time for it to lift oil through the pushrods to the rocker arms, so you are probably OK on that. And that is why they make assembly lubes.

    The same may be...

    Here in the South, and also at altitude out West, vapor lock can be a problem. Just changing a rubber fuel line from 1/4 to 5/16 will make a big difference. And insulating the fuel line with even...

    Yes, it's fine. That's the way they made the five speeds. The shift fork rod just floats in the assembly. IT DOESN'T MATTER.

    Do you think this is a fuel delivery issue, or a jetting issue? At speed, if you fatten the main a few clicks, does the motor pick up, or stay the same?

    If it's a delivery issue, you might try...

    In 1980, the mags for the FLH, and the other models for that matter, were not approved for tubeless use.
    (I have an '80 FLH as well.)
    You may be able to get away with running the tire tubeless, but...

    From your description it sounds like the backing plate is moving relative to the reaction link. Maybe you need to look at how you have it attached.

    I would find a sleeve that fit the axle better....
