    I really like Regatta Garage's exhaust fab tools, I was having a hard time wrapping my head around things.

    looking good, any particular reason you ditched the 5 speed for the 4?

    I really wanted a kick start. Looking at adding a kickstart kick to the 5 speed looked to be an expensive proposition to do right. The cheap kicker kits didn't inspire much confidence. I had 4 speeds laying around in parts and decided to throw one together. In the end I get the same final drive and snagged a nice belt drive on the cheap that ties it together. I was using an internal belt set up for a Softail but now I can ditch all the stock primary stuff.

    Just about finished with the exhaust. Not super happy with where I put the break but I can always make another. Finish smoothing these guys out and it's off to chrome.

    ... and I took it apart.

    The engine in this bike has never been right. I bought it as "refreshed" and hot rodded from an Instagram engine builder. The first time I turned it over a piston ran into a valve, he took it back and swapped pistons then said he was done with it. Understandable knowing how long I had had it at that point. After throwing it back in the bike we couldn't get it to fire. Turned out the cam wasn't timed right. Timed it and got it running but had low.compression on the rear cylinder. After riding it a bit I noticed it was dumping a fair amount of oil between the case halves. So, time to put some of these tools I've been collecting to use.

    Started tearing it down. Filled the heads with gas, the rear head is definitely leaking past the valve.

    The stock flywheel measured about .006 at the pinion shaft. I was going to throw this s&s set in I have for my 107" project but was able to get the Harley wheels in to spec. Measured about .0012 at the pinion and .0016 on the crank side.

    Still chugging along. Got the flywheels within .0005 pinion and .0010 crank. Old crank races pressed out, new bearing set came in the mail. Next I gotto work on my press as it always seems to go a hair sideways and I don't wanna fuck up putting the races back in. I'm waiting on a pinion side bearing and I think I'm ready to start slapping it back together. Next to tackle the jugs and pistons. My buddy Vince is going to rebuild the heads again.

    Pistons and the rest of the parts are ordered. Only large thing left is fixing my leaky valve.
