    Default 1982 Shovelhead Build

    Whatís up guys I just wanted to make a thread about my build and get some help from some gurus as this is my first build.

    Starting platform 1982 FLT with some interesting upgrades. Bike came with an S&S bottom end, shorty E carb, S&S heads not sure what package the bike has but Iíll figure that out later. Previous owner got it started for me and thatís all I needed. Click image for larger version.

    This thing came all jacked up, I didnít care because my plan was to strip it down and throw it in a 76í flh frame and hard tail it.

    Chopping frame, I went with the Road 6 Customs hardtail kit I liked how the rear flowed.

    Picked up this rotary top trans for a decent deal in todays market. I would prefer a ratchet top but the prices are crazy for them at the moment. I’ll grab one later on I just want to get this thing mostly together for now. Click image for larger version.

    Not sure why my pictures are being posted turned, but my question is this port for the regulator has what kinda looks like a gasket? Or rtv? I tried searching for a new one can anyone let me know if a gasket is made for this or do I have to make my own?Click image for larger version.

    It's just RTV. There is no gasket, the rubber plug is the seal. The terminals look pretty bad, so a new stator might be a good idea while you have the motor out.

    Can someone give me their input on installing this open primary kit? Got the belt and sprockets from marketplace and I’m trying to install it on my clutch basket that came with my 5 speed. My clutch basket should work? I know I need to add the 4 speed clutch. But what order is this stuff going in? Also I forgot how the the pin on the tranny shaft was supposed to seat is the way I have it on correct or is it supposed to be flipped? Click image for larger version.

    Here’s what I have from the disassembly that I’m trying to use to piece together on tranny.

    The Woodruff key for your transmission mainshaft is installed with the flat side up, as in your picture. Tap it in gently so the top edge is parallel with the taper of the shaft.

    Part #1, the clutch hub is installed first. If you are using the factory clutch hub bearing, it's best to install it on the clutch hub on the bench before installing the clutch hub on the transmission. Secure with part #4, the clutch hub nut. There is a lock plate that goes under the nut. The nut has a seal pressed in to seal around the clutch pushrod. You might want to renew it. The nut is a left hand thread and should be torqued to 90 - 120 ft.lb. (MY spec; not in any manual). DO NOT use a rattle gun on to tighten this nut.

    Part #2 appears to be an extra inner primary bearing, and you already have one in your mainshaft support.

    Once the clutch hub is installed and secured, install the motor pulley with enough shim behind it that the toothed edge of the pulley is not touching the alternator rotor. You should be able to get at least a
    .003 feeler gauge between the edge of the pulley and the alternator rotor. Snug up the nut, just 20 or 30 ft.lb. while you are setting this up. Then put the clutch shell on the hub and check your belt alignment with a straightedge. You will need to have the transmission square on its plate and snugged down while you are doing this. You can add spacers behind the motor pulley if necessary, but you cannot move it inboard from the original position I described. If it needs to move inboard to align the belt, you will have to change something else. Maybe move the transmission out a little. Once you have the belt alignment set, remove the motor pulley and offer up the motor pulley, belt, and clutch shell as an assembly. Tighten the motor pulley nut (may be part of the #3 group, I really can't tell) to 150 - 165 ft.lb. and use a little red Loctite on the thread. Then put the clutch in and adjust everything and you are done.

    Then you will have to see if the belt tracks properly when the motor is running, but that is for another day.

    Jim
