Re: Paughco side by side for panhead

It should sit far enough forward on the correct rigid frame mount to clear the pipes.

Re: diesel on shut off

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...

Re: selling 61 Pan what's it worth?

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.

Re: Rusty Cylinder

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.

Re: Rocker clutch

Roo Dog, He doesn't have the part in front of him, hence his question.

DaCs, the mounting point on the frame did not change between 1936 and into the 1980s, so the holes will line up.

Re: BIG saddle bags for Duo Glide?

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.

Re: Transmission - Shifting into Neutral or First Gear

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...

Re: BIG saddle bags for Duo Glide?

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 p

icture. They weigh a lot and are very big, so shipping would be expensive.

Re: Clutch pushrod end shape

The rod had a tip until '65 when it was changed for electric start bikes. The tip fit the notch in the release fork on the clutch shaft.

Re: M35TP carb question

Post a picture of the venturi you remove after it is out. Does it have a hole in it for a nozzle?

Re: Potential clutch drag?

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).

Re: M35TP carb question

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.

Re: M35TP carb question

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".
