Re: 1965 Pan

Heres the photos of the push rod in question and I can not (or don't want to ) believe some one put this push rod in there like this. I have not found any part of it at all. Notice how the tubing is peeling off the tube at the rocker. http://www.hydra-glide.com/phpBB3/app.php/gallery/image/3790/medi...

Re: Worn out carb

Every thing mechanical has a service life , so your carb may be to that point . We both know that more fuel and air will make horse power , to a point, isn't that why you stroked it? I know this isn't a good comparison to a Pan motor, but what MM are the Twinkie's running in the carb? They be 88ci ,...

Re: Frame markings

I also agree with the legalities , but we don't know if it has a number on it or not or ever had one.We also don't know if the frame had been customized and unwanted tabs removed , I've seen a lot of frames that had a lot of stuff removed from them to clean them up. So I'm not going to loose a bit o...
