    Default S&S shovel vs. Pan flywheels

    Since I live overseas itís a bit of a pain to call s&s up to ask the question. And they donít seem big on answering emails.

    But the thing is I just got a Ď63 that had the original engine blow up in the 90ís and the guy just replaced it with a alternator shovelhead from s&s.

    Iíve been looking at my options what to do in order to put a panhead into it.
    One option I thought of is to swap out the cases for a set of generator cases from s&s.
    Does anyone know if that can be done with the shovel flywheels?

    I know they sell this combo of left alternator case with a right generator case, but donít really want to go that route.

    Most of my litersture is boxed up somewhere so I canít look into what the difference is between the left side of the flywheels/casing between the pan and alt. shovel and just donít remember exactly.

    Anyone that can shed some light before I just rule this route out completely and find me a pan to build or what not.

    As far as the flywheel assembly goes, all you have to change is the sprocket shaft (it's a different length ) and then you can transplant your wheels into a '63 pan case (or similar replacement case, as long as it has Timken sprocket shaft bearings ).

    They are different kinda.... It wouldn't be worth tearing down a running motor to scavenge parts..... Did you happen to get the blown up motor????

    No, didn’t get the other engine with it.
    It was picked up by a guy after it blew up, but he ain’t giving it up.

    Being able to use parts from this engine to build a pan sounds great, but probably isn’t.
    Probably easier to just find an non titled pan engine, go through and sell this s&s engine off.

    It’s a bitch that it had been swapped out when it did, but I got the bike cheap.

    I just needed a bit of convincing that it wouldn’t be worth using this engine to build a pan and rather just get a new one.

    The engine you remove will sell for more as a runner. Don't omit taking a video of it running before pulling the old engine.

    That’s a good point. Had to clean the carb since it hadn’t ran for close to ten years. I’ll take a video once it’s up and running again and post it for sale locally.

    Next up is to find a pan engine.
