    what would the dimensions need to be for a spacer to fit between the lip of a stock cylinder and the bore of a 3 5/8 head ?

    The stock I.D. of the counter bore in the head (74" & 80" motors) is 3.750" .200 deep .... The 3-5/8" counter bore is 3.880"
    ..... You do the math ..... Lol

    ok.

    3.880 - 3.750 = .13

    .062 x 2 = .124

    bend 3 pieces of .062 wire into rings with a 3.880 od and drop them into the head one on top of the other staggering the cut ends like piston rings.

    makes a spacer .182 tall and .062 thick.

    which makes the heads fit very nicely.

    i'll keep you in the loop for sure. i have two sets of S&S big bore shovel cases and a set of STD genny cases w/stock bore. couple of big bore jug sets and 3 S&S crank assemblies of various strokes. i put these heads on this motor cuz 1) it's a fresh build and closest to the street and 2) to test my theory on the spacers.

    when i get around to building the STD genny bottom i'll put the heads on it and swap it into the chopper frame. maybe.
    btw, i picked up a servi frame so it looks like my 45 magnum motor will be pushing a custom trike. gonna be a busy winter.

    that tree setup is purty, can't wait to see what you do with the carbs.

    Yeah me too ..!!!

    Got a thought about doing a sweep forward intake ....



    Already got the S&S intake but from what I'm seeing with using it, might be a little tough on the riding position ... Be a bit more leg room with the forward intake...???

    Going to wait till I mock up the motor before I jump to on doing the carbs....
    Then will be the time to make the call on which way I'll go with the carbs...

    The Riley's are the carbs of choice .....
    Mostly for the reason of their racing heritage from the 30's and 40's ...

    May not be the best choice from the standpoint of what there is being manufactured today....
    But it's all about the History of the Riley's ....



    Not going to be seeing many of these in use ... Shoot, they were pretty dang rare even back in the day...!!
    Finding a match set was a stroke of luck on our part and will fit the era of what the build of this scooter will be...

    The owner will have the last word on how to mount them up...
    I'm just a wench in his hands ....
    (As far as looks goes, I'm leading toward the Two Throat S&S manifold and canting the carbs.. May be a pain getting leg room. The elbow manifold would help a great deal in the area, but looks may not be as good.)

    We'll see how it goes shortly ... ???

    The re-pop's are only offered in a 2" bore..
    These are the real deal 1-1/2' bore...

    Had a chat with the Fellow that is making the re-pop's...
    He said that he sold one of his to a Guy who installed it on a JD, said he made a few Venturi's for it trying to dial it in..
    But the 2 inch was to much carb for the JD...
    For that carb to work must have large cubes to feed... At least 90 ci or more....
    Don't know bout you, but I hadn't seen any 90" JD's running around .... !!! ...

    Jesse, This thing is rad! I'll keep an eye in here for sure! Thanks for the insight on the STD Pan in my thread btw, I passed on it and am spending a little more but beginning building a wishbone frame and 57 Pan motor and 49 trans I picked up! I agree those Rileys look better canted and poking straight out the side..

    Forgot to say on your thread about the STD Pans that Accurate Engineering was also big time in building Pan motors using STD parts...

    Got it priced very reasonable ....
    Oh ... BTY Fellows
    The 4-fin cam cover (That came off the STD Pan motor) is made by "House of Horsepower"
    ____________________________________________

    Just a bit of work needs to be done to the new cam cover...
    It came with the 36-53 bushing already installed...

    Must change out the pinion bushing to the 54-72 bushing...
    Ordered the later bushing with the cover... Install time is at hand..

    Cam Cover is getting the later bushing installed and line reamed....

    Wanted to do that job now before the polishing, less chance of boogering the cover....
