    Default Morris M5 fit….STD cases

    Hey y’all.
    I’m about to convert my 78 shovel with STD cases over to a magneto, planning on the morris m5 kit. But I had a question: they sell kits for stock cases or ALL aftermarket cases. Lowbrow is out of the aftermarket one, and I have a 20% coupon I was wanting to use since it’s so expensive.

    Does anyone have direct experience with these kits? What’s the actual difference between the aftermarket vs stock? Can I run a stock kit on the STD cases?

    Thanks for the help y’all.

    I think the most obvious answer is to contact Morris - ask them.

    STD Development was bought out Spyke:

    2018 Thread: Help with aftermarket cases
    "I picked up a set of what I was told were STD Shovelhead cases. They look to be in decent shape, no cracks.
    I was going to start putting a motor together for a Paughco Easywide roller. Not really sure what years parts are going to work. Can't seem to find info on the numbers. Hoping somebody here could help point in the right direction."
