    Got the Acc program loaded on my new computer...
    Yippy, can load more numbers onto the chart now ..

    And the numbers are ....



    Now to go a step further with matching the recips of both Pistons/Rods ... Here's how that's done ...

    See the recip weight number for the front rod in the chart ..
    It's 232 grams, the rear recip is 238 that's 6 grams diff. ... Weighed the front piston and the rear, got 1.5 grams diff. on them ..
    That's a total of 7.5 grams ... By removing 7.5 grams from the rear piston and/or recip part of the rear rod, we will have attain a match on the recip weights of both Pistons/Rods combo ...



    Pulled all 7.5 grams from the piston ...




    New chart reflecting the 7.5 grams that has been removed ..



    Time for some holes to be drilled ..

    When I first seen the drop on the balance stand, had the thought of adding a slug of Mallory metal to the light side ... But those slugs are not cheap by no means ...

    Been very busy on this motor job .. Ready to build up the crank ..

    Sprocket shaft nut will see 400 ft pounds of torque on it ..



    Over the years of wrenching on these oldies, I would wager to say that I seen over 25 sprocket shafts that have spun in the wheel..

    Guessing that's why the Mo-Co in 73 started using a larger taper on the sprocket shaft ..
    The Big Twin was gaining some ponies in the late 50's and 60's ..
    Harley knew that they had an issue with the old design and was time to step up to the plate with a hardier design capable of staying together under hard usage ...

    Had a well known "Drag Racer" tell me in order to help keep the shafts from spinning he would use battery acid on the tapers .... Think I'll stick to using 609 Loctite .. !!

    What kind of software are you using there?

    Is it the same one that does your dyno calculations?

    Does come in super handy with having the flywheel balance, camshaft, gearing and cylinder heads programs at your fingertips ...

    Been so busy with the trannys that I kinda put this build on the back burner for a while ..



    Got a new tool for the work table that will allow for a bit more comfort with handling the motor while building it ...

    Soon will get around to powder-coating the lower end, it's almost done with the prepping part of the job ..

    sorry i just glanced at the pic and it looked like cam lobes. Looked again and it is indeed the CB gear. Was wondering about the pinionshaft groove at the oil hole. Was wondering why partial and not all the way around? Just wondering.

    I was going to go with a grooved pinion bearing, like used to be advertised in the old biker mags. S&S advised to only make the groove 1/2 way around. Maybe taking oil from the heads? Probably one reason not to go clear around the pinion shaft, it could weaken it on the end. Jesse will probably have the definitive answer.
    But mine was for a knuckle motor.,

    Could do 360* oiling by making a cam cover pinion bushing with cutting a groove down the side of it to allow for end oiling ..
    Would need to meter it down on the flow ...

    I choose to do the ramps on the shaft cause of using the cast iron pump, even though I did speed up the pump to 73 specs ...
    If a alum. pump was in play most likely I'd do the 360* ...
