    Maybe I'm reading it wrong, but that seems to say that the gear from the 3 brush generator will work, but you need to use a different oil deflector.

    This is the only fitment note on JP Cycle for the DGV-5000L:
    "1936-1957 When replacing 3 brush generators use 3800165 oil deflector, discard spring and old deflector. Check for clearance on foot clutch models."

    I don't get why you would want to change to 12 volts if you have most what is needed for the 2 brush conversion. My last pan I fitted a 6v h4 bulb in the bucket and it was just as bright as any 12v. I get having all new parts so you don't need to worry about that part of the build but you don't need to.

    A co-worker who does powder coating and builds cafe racer style bikes on the side offered to do my frame and any other parts that I want coated at cost. I may take him up on that! I've seen some of his work and he does a nice job. Thinking basic black for the frame, jugs & heads to start with. Valve spring tool I ordered should be here tomorrow, so I'll be working on disassembling and cleaning up the heads this weekend.

    Might as well drive out the valve guides and get new ones...

    That's the only way yo're going to get a nice powder coat job done on the heads and spring buckets...
    (Have no idea why the Mo-Co designed it the way they did .. ??)

    Being the heads & jugs are cast iron, a sand blaster could be put to use ...

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for replacement rocker arm seals? I can't seem to find them anywhere. Click image for larger version.

    Not reassembling yet though. My rocker arms are really rough where the seals run. Also, new valves and valve guides are needed.

    Thanks for that link! Those are the valves I was looking at, but that's a better price than JP Cycle has. Am I seeing correctly that they are listing the same valve guide for both intake and exhaust? Everywhere else I've looked lists them separately, and what I pulled out are definitely different.

    I definitely like the specs on those cams. I'd be all over that if it was in the budget right now, but I'm going to stick with the Andrews S grind that I have for this go-round. That'll go on the list for the next pass!

    Those guides are a great choice, as they are made with a nickel cast iron that will last. (Not that any guide that short will last too long.) A black nitrided valve is the best thing to use with those guides, and the unleaded fuel we have now.

    That sounds great! So it's OK to use the same valve guide for both intake and exhaust?

    My original guides match this from the manual, intake beveled, exhaust not.

    You are going to have to size the inside diameter of the guides after installation for the proper clearance to the valve stem, either by reaming or honing. Therefore it doesn't matter that the same guide is used for intake and exhaust. You can chamfer the top of the guide if you wish before installation.

    There is machine work and fitting involved in this, you don't just bang the guides in and go.

    Yes, I understand that part. Reamer is in the shopping cart already. So if the bevel isn't actually a critical feature, I should be good to go. Thanks!

    The guides from KPMI are the same for in/ex ....
    Might be a good idea to also replace the valve springs due to age..

    KPMI offers two spring kits ..
    20-20425 is a Oem replacement rated at 415" valve lift with 125-135lb seat pressure.
    20-20170 Lightweight Racing spring kit has .480 lift @ .150-160lb

    Also the heads have replaceable valve seats only on the exhaust side ...
    Can machine a pocket for the intakes and run seats that are designed for unleaded....
