    A story ....

    At the time I was working for "Biker's Dream" in Daytona on Beach Street.
    We sold most all of the clone Harley Customs..
    Fella comes into the shop and buys one of the 750 "Billy" bikes that (At that time) CMC was building...



    It had a 96" S&S Super Stock engine ...

    The Chap rode it all the time, he was a local Boy and would stop by the shop every now and again for us to do the service...
    He did have a small problem with a oil leak, wasn't a huge leak but was enough of one to be a nuisance...
    It was around the oil pump.. No problem we thought, install some new gaskets should take care of it...

    Nope .... It still had the leak ... !!! ... Bummer WTF ... ??
    Ok.. Got with S&S and Pow-Wow about what to do...
    They sent us a new oil pump, install it and put down a few miles on a test ride ....
    Well Sir .... The leak was still there...

    Now it was time to get out the "Tom Terrific Hat"



    What I did was to get a Kit off the Snap-On truck that had a dye and a black light to locate the leak...
    And it worked super well, found it ....

    The case casting had a bubble in it and was weeping oil right behind the pump ....
    Al-right, got on the horn to S&S and told them our findings ...
    They said to pull the motor and send it to them and they would change out the case...
    Got with the owner to tell him what the game plan was...
    He asked about the time it would take to do this, we told him about 6 to 8 weeks...

    He didn't like hearing that, he wanted to ride.
    I told him there was another fix that would most likely cure the oil leak and would get him back in the saddle within a days time..
    Being the casting flaw was behind the pump on the breather wall of the case, I suggested grinding down the case a bit for JB Weld to bond to...
    He like that idea and said to go for it...

    I did the work, 20 mile test ride .... "No Leak"
    Happy Camper ... !!
    The last time I seen that Chap and his bike it had over 16,000 miles on it and was ticking like a .....

    Everything can break and or have a defect, it’s how it’s handled by the manufacturer that makes the product worth buying.

    I was looking at an Ultima 127 for quite a lot less than an S&S but ultimately (see what I did there?) went with the 2yr warrantied S&S. Even then it ate an oil pump and the compression releases fell out in the first 10K

    They sent me a new pump but nothing on the releases.

    Same thing coulda happened with an Ultima...or not.

    At least the $$ went to a USA co. and not chyna. Unless S&S is doing the “Designed in the USA” but made in a rice paddy routine....

    You can revert back to the tins with their heads...

    But with the tins, the valve guides will need to be pulled cause the tins go under the guides unlike S&S die-cast being held to the heads by valve spring pressure....

    You will be needing the stock design guides... The S&S guides that are already there will not work with the tin buckets....
