    How we doing with getting in there... ??

    Once all the case studs have been removed, both case half's will slip off the crank.

    At that point you will have some choices to make ... Being you got it striped down to skin & bones, you can bring it back into specks on the bearing fitment of both the pinion and sprocket shafts... As old as that motor is and most likely it never has seen a rebuild to this level, best to have the case races line-lapped and fit up oversize bearings...

    Yo'll need to take the cases, case studs and the crank to a shop that can do this work, also have them replace the cam bushing and line-ream it to size ... And while they have the crank in hand, let them put it in a truing stand for a check on the run-out, ya may see a need to have the crank serviced ...

    (Sure would be a good time to talk stroker, but I'm not going there !!)





    ...... Much luck .. Miss Tenderfoot .. !!

    Cut corners anywhere but the engine!

    The beauty of HDs is you can overhaul them to better than new status, damn handy when one is ancient and worn out.

    Agree with the above. I am willing to do almost everything on my bike, except build the motor. For that I want an experienced guy with all the right machines and special tools. Heck even the trans and wheel hubs are pretty easy once you have a solid motor under you.

    I went back to stock specs as I wanted an easy to kick, dependable starter, and that is exactly what I have. ( Just have to get the leak around the spark plugs sorted out and I have a plan for that this winter.

    Enjoy you are officially in the deep end of the pool ;-)

    What's a stroker? Haha.
    I'm not able to make a healthy deposit. Still trying to get around to see shops and meet people, I don't really want to take it somewhere if I get treated like crap, which is a lot of what I've been getting. I'm definitely up for paying bit not when I get nagged or told what a piece of junk I've got. Haven't been to cycle works yet. Hard to get outta work in time.
    Still puttering around and cleaning things. Mostly playing with the primary getting everything all clean and pretty. I'm overwhelmed and a little nervous. Thanks everyone for checking in. I really appreciate it. : )

    And as far as the shop "Cycle Works" goes ...

    They shoot straight, no smoke up your butt at all ....
    I highly recommend them for any needed outside work to be done on your motor...
    (BTW ... Phil is old school, don't think he knows what a stroker is .. Lol)
