    Don't go that direction, That for sure is a waste of money........ Plus it kills the resale price of the bike, even though I know your not going to sell the bike...........

    Unfortunately, that's not the case.
    Very understandable ....

    But it sure would be great timing, being ya got the motor apart, to do all that work to the old girl ...

    Easy to get a fairly large amount of Green wrapped up in an motor that old..
    Those S&S kick-ass jugs are around a grand, then you most likely will see the need for a small world of knick-knack parts as the build goes together ...

    Maybe you could float a loan for this project or take it slow as the money comes to you .. ???

    Just saying .....

    This photo is before working the case window to match the S&S Breather valve..
    Note the elongated top end return vacuum hole in their valve .. Oem does not have that, it gives more time to pull oil out of the top end = Less oil up there, less oil leaks .. !



    S&SŪ High Evacuation Breather Gears For 1936–'47 Big Twins. With the new high evacuation breather gear for knucklehead engines, we applied the same principle to the cylinder head return oil suction passage as we did to the breather pocket scavenge port on our other breather gears. By elongating that hole in the gear, the duration of vacuum on the passage is increased. That allows more oil to be drawn from the "tins" and returned to the gearcase and ultimately to the oil tank. Getting more oil out of the tins reduces one of the most common problems with knuckle engines – leaky tins.



    This photo shows the case window after the work was done for matching the gear case window ...

    This procedure increases the area that air and oil have to pass from breather gear cavity to cam chest ...

    Photo below shows checking the valve's open and closing timing..
    This work maximizes the efficiency of scavenging oil from flywheel cavity

    Improper breather timing causes poor oil scavenging from flywheel cavity and incorrect crankcase air pressure. These conditions may cause unwarranted engine oil leaks around gaskets and seals and probable oil burning due to oil past piston rings.

    Boy, this just doesn't want to come off. I tried a 3 jaw puller, but I'm afraid I'm going to bend the rear plate. I'd rather have a way to pull straight on the 3 threaded studs...
    Manual just says use special H-D puller #12749-36. Not something I just happen to have.
    Tricks?

    You need this style puller....



    $40

    Maybe a torch if it’s reluctant...

    I’m 30 miles away if you want to borrow it or just order one and you can get it on Amazon and have it in a day or two

    Next question. On the paper gaskets in the oil pump, do you guys use any kind of gasket sealer/adhesive? I don't see any mention of that in the manual, but it seems odd to me to put it together dry...

    I don't............ Sometimes if the gasket is old stock paper you have to wet them a little............
