Dieseling is normally caused by something in the combustion chamber being hot enough to ignite the mixture. It can be anything from a chunk of carbon, a sharp edge on a piston, a hot valve, a plug electrode, etc. Usually caused by an over lean mixture or timing issues. Just because it starts good do...
To me the "customization" knocks a big portion of the value off it. It could be a good rider, but it has little collector value in that state of being.
That is completely normal Pat, the extreme heat in the exhaust ports burns off any type of finish in short order. As mentioned, just repaint it. H-D used to sell brush on black high heat paint just for those uses.

A trailer would be a better option. Duo-Glides handle poorly with large loads, the swingarms are like wet noodles, the forks are weak, and the shocks are a joke.

Andy, When You are sitting like that and I doesn't want to shift, slowly engage the clutch, as it begins to engage it will cause the shafts to spin in the gearbox letting them better self align (the same thing that occurs if someone moves the bike for you!). That is what I referred to back in one of...
I have an old pair of "Brookfield" bags for Duo-Glide. They are huge. Not sure if I have any pics, but I can take some. They look like this picture. They weigh a lot and are very big, so shipping would be expensive.
Coleman fuel is gas, so called "White Gas" which just doesn't have detergents and additives in it. Lacquer thinner works well as does Stoddard Solvent (mineral spirits as used in the dry cleaning business).
That carb is assembled completely wrong and it appears the venturi is incorrect. Any 1-1/2 inch carb venturi will fit it, either the 1-1/8 or the 1-5/16 type, but all keep the nozzle in place. You have wrong parts in there. I have a couple M35TP carbs and they are just fine.
The main nozzle fits exactly the same way on an M35TP as it does on an M74 (there is no M78). The top shoulder of the main nozzle indexes the slot in the venturi allowing the main nozzle to protrude. The spring does indeed hold it in place, no "floating".
