    Was in the mode of loading the pushrods and came to a dead stop when I pulled the pushrods covers out of the owners box of parts....

    His motor is a 81 .... Pushrods covers are of that era. They use o-rings instead of the corks of yesterday....
    Well Sir.... Somewhere down it's life it got corks installed on the later covers....

    Looks as if they had a most difficult time doing that....

    Never trust a man that tells you the motor is plug and play. Lesson learned always go through it and see what the hell is going on. Them tubes are trashed, never even noticed when I tore it apart just threw them in a box

    Ok.......

    Switching gears here to another 82 Shovel motor that's been on the back burner for awhile....

    Jumping in on getting the stock flywheels built...
    Did a replacement of the Oem crank-pin and rods..
    Being a balance job will go down on the crank, thought to do a mock up and see what there was to see....

    Well Sir.....
    I see some meat needs to come out of the 80" wheels for the swing of the new rods....

    Still have the numbers to run down with weighing all the parts and running the balance program....
    That will give me the numbers for the Bob weight.....

    Also, will be replacing the flywheel thrust washers being these are toast......
    ________________________________________________

    One wheel is clearanced, took just enough off to do the swing....

    There is a reason for using this lower number for the balance factor on this motor build...
    But .... dang if I can think of it right now ....

    Anybody wanta jump in with why that was done, feel free to do so....



    Sucks growing old.... Bout as much as getting stoned .....
    (Wait a sec.... dat didn't sound right... Lol..)

    With the recip weights being as close as they are, will not have a need to remove weight from the rod...
    Weighed both pistons, one was only 1 gram lighter... It will go in the rear jug and 4.5 grams will be removed from it...

    Hope to have the crank built up by the end of the day....
    AND, perhaps installed in the motor case...???
    ______________________________________________-

    Wheels are now done with the balancing....

    Seen that the flywheel thrust washers been chewed on and thought to replace them....

    Did a mock up of the wheels with moderate torque on the crank-pin nuts....
    Have over .030 side-play on the female rod.....

    Being I'm installing new washers, think I'll close that up with a set of thicker washers than what std is.....

    Been doing the wheels with a C-clamp and a wedge for years....

    Shop up the road called and said they was having problems truing up a set of Shovel flywheels...
    Wondered if I could make a trip to their shop to lend a hand ..

    Stock Oem imports was the choice ..

    Owner took off the stater, so I was going to install it back onto the motor....
    But the plug has seen some burn time in the sockets....

    Think I'll leave that work for him to do....

    Back to the Shovel FLT ....

    This motor is a 82 year model, somewhere down it's life the heads got changed out to the 66-74 run of the three casting's...
    Going to take them apart and see what all there is to do to them...

    One thing that they will be getting along with the rocker boxes is the Black Powder coat laid on...

    Cam chest will be loaded soon as the cam bearing comes in... Got a L3S cam going in, hope the back-lash will be on the money with the pinion gear that the motor been running with...
    Depending on what I find in the heads, may be seeing some Kilbewhite valves and springs added to the mix...

    Also a S&S breather gear will be installed.... Being this motor is stock stroke, breather timing should be Ok....
    Will be running down the open and closing timing for shit's and giggle's .....

    _______________________________________

    New plan of attack .....

    Not going with the S&S breather valve, stock will be reused....
    Owner is on a budget and is wanting to put money into parts that are only needed...

    Now that the heads have been pulled apart found some ware on the guides and the valves have had some grind time done to them from past valve jobs.
    Not sure if they can be reused after another grind goes down on them...
    Margin will most likely is very little...????
    May see replacements installed, will do a grind on them and make that call...

    Not all that fond of reusing the stock Oem springs ... With the L3S cam being installed would be a good idea to replace 40 year old valve springs....

    Looks like when this box was being made the Mo-Co drilled the oil port to close to the outer wall of the box....

    Must have broke out at some point and welded up... If I work the weld down, that could happen again being the npt is a taper .... ????

    Had a chat with the owner with what choices we have....
    Hope he will find a better rocker box that can be powdered without problems ..
