    This ^^ didn't work out all that well .. The gear was harder than a three day old biscuit .. Bout an hour of spinning only moved about .0002" of meat .. I'd be there till the cows came home ..



    Reverted back to the 32-E Gen method of setting up the backlash ..
    Gen bolts O.D. was shaved down .010" to allow the Gen some movement ..



    Took two steel shims in order to have .002" backlash ...



    Used pieces from both kits to do the looksee ...

    It might be a while yet ...

    How bout this shit :x .... Went to get a tube of Permatex Anaerobic Gasket Maker to glue the cases with ...
    Was in the parts store, got the glue and handed them my CC ...
    They said it was denied ... WTF !!
    There was over $800 in that account ... Went to the bank to find out what's going on ..
    They said I've been hacked !!
    Some dip-shit in Saudi Arabia maxed out my card buying Airline tickets ...

    So .... Kinda looks like it might be awhile before I can buy glue ...
    !! Bastards !! ... Drop a nuke on those M/F's and they will stop screwing up peoples lives ..



    Five to Seven days ... New Card ..

    That is fucked up. I really wish there were a way to reach through the screens and choke the living shit out of people like that.

    That's why I have two credit cards since every few years some bot finds the number on one of them. It's inevitable.

    That's messed up folks. We have been so damn lucky, but I am pretty cautious and use Paypal whenever possible on-line.

    Five to Seven days ... New Card ..
    I went to my credit union to protest a charge last week and he had my card cancelled and gave me a new card in about 15 minutes. I'd be screaming like a stuck hog if they made me wait five to seven days.

    I got a new tube of glue .. Yippy



    The Boys at Advance Auto gave me a open invoice to pay.
    Once the bank gets this ordeal (5 to 7 days) straighten out I'll catch up with em ...

    Mighty nice of them to do that ..

    Now that the cases are glued & nailed together, more checks are in the works ..



    Good as Gold here ..
    Piston will be running up and down the bore straight as a string ...





    In need of a few small parts and the cam chest will be locked, crocked and ready to rock !!



    Oil pump has good finger spin ..
    ______________________________________________



    Looks like a 48 to me ...

    Also see a few more parts that will be needed ..

    1) Pushrod tube covers, if you reuse the EL covers the clips will be to short .. FL clips will be needed ..
    2) Headbolts ... I would strongly suggest 12 point heads ... Makes life easier working with em.
    3) Thick D-ring Pan cover bolts ..
    4) Intake clamps ... I'd use "FNA Custom Cycle" Tite seal with the VT conversion rings ..
    5) 3/8" Carb spacer from S&S

    And valves and springs ..

    Heads came with what VT loaded them with ... Nothing to write home about ..
    They packed the springs for a max valve lift of .425".
    The L-51 cam has a .533" valve lift ..

    My pick for replacing the wind from the east stuff would be KPMI "Black Diamond" valves and their Lightweight Racing Spring kit which has a max valve lift at .600"
    You could reuse the valves that came with the VT heads, but not the springs ...

    Plain is how I like 'em on the outside (which also means a lot less upkeep).

    Order parts per the above list.

    (Didn't take much talking, did it ?) ..

    First off is to get the pressure pot back on line ... Been awhile since it has seen any action ..



    Did a little stripping with a air file ..



    Do a nice enough job on the fin repair, might throw on a super nice, long lasting finish ... ??

    Powder coat the things. After this much hassle the longer it goes untouched the better!

    This is how the "Hotcoat Powder Coat Jet Black" will look ...





    High Gloss Jet Black powder provides a smooth, glossy finish.

    Wasn't after steel wheels for the sand blaster, but it was all that Ace Hardware had in stock ...

    Really wasn't wanting to use the sand blaster in the first place ... Tried to get the paint off of the jugs by bead blasting ...
    But the paint was coming off super slow .... And down inside the fins was almost a no-go at all ..

    Got a 50lb bag of sand ... Will drag the sand blaster out the back door and have at it ... (Tis a PITA doing it out in the Florida Hot Sun)
    Hoping one bag will do both jugs .. ?? Soon to find out ..





    That's one ... ^^

    The other jug has no broken fins ...
    Lets see if there is enough sand left in the pot to do it .. ??
    (Ya known, I'd almost be willing to get bitch slapped instead of sand blasting out in the heat)

    But, I'm halfway there now ...

    (I know, quit my bitching and ....... )






    Front jug is done, time for a snow cone !!



    Still in need of a donor jug to rob some fins from...
    Hadn't heard from my Buddy just yet ... ??

    Cool ... He just called me ...
    Said he has some 900 Sportie jugs ...
