    Rather than drill & tap for a replaceable jet, you can just enlarge the existing hole. You can even do...

    You are probably fat on your main jet and/ or the main air bleed needs to be larger to separate the intermediate and main jets.

    From the appearance of your pushrod, you have the (correct) early release bearing, and so you should just be able to install the pushrod by sliding it in. I think you are OK there.

    A Dyna S will fire on power up or power off, sometimes. I had my FLH start up and run one time when I only turned the ignition switch on. (Good cylinder seal!)

    For the evo XL, there are a few different wheels, and they are kinda, sorta, interchangeable. But they are not all the same.
