    Default Swap Meet Shovel Motor Build ...

    Good as any place to start at ...



    Belly numbers are matching ..
    That's always nice to see ...

    Let's see if I can come up with a set of flywheels ...



    A nice set of 80" wheels would be cool ... Cases be 1976, came from the Mo-Co as a 74" motor, but if I have a good set of the 80" wheels they will be used in this motor ...

    Yes you did! I was going to respond to your original post that it would be a better starting place with 4.75" wheels... Glad I scrolled down first!

    I have a set of 4.5" S&S if you would rather use that I'd trade...

    Done got a game plan started ...

    Went to digging in the shop and found some NOS S&S Manley Big Bore pistons for 4-3/4" stroke ...
    And more Dixie parts that are needed for the build ..





    Pinion shaft is for the side oiler models (58-72) but I can convert it to a end oiler easy enough ..
    Sprocket shaft is on the money ...

    Had these jugs sitting on a shelf for a coons age ... They will be in the brew ...



    Got a few sets of heads to pick from ...
    Going for the Sleeper Shovel look, although those jugs will give it away ..
    I'll dig out the heads a bit later ...

    Thank you, no. Don't really want to go backwards at this point. I bought a long block in need of total rebuild for a good price about 20 years ago... on the premise that it was a 98" motor with S&S internals. Fast forward 18 years when I finally got ready to do something with it, pulled the heads, lo and behold it was 4.5" stroke. I don't think I was intentionally lied to, the guy just didn't really know what he had. So, I already have a 96" in my FXS... if I build another it will either be a 98" or 103".

    Will be using them... Do have another set that are 66-74 year models and are in better shape ..
    But I'll go though these with some new parts and bring them back to life ..

    Took em apart, not in bad shape at all, has Rowe's guides that are still within specks ..

    Getting a jump on some of the needed headwork ..





    I normally take three cuts to bore heads, 3.800" diameter, 3.850" to get to final size of 3.879" ..

    Woof, 3-13/16!!! This, coupled with 4.75" would be something... Rod angles might be getting out of hand tho. Thanks for the heads up, may give him a call.
