Re: correct coil terminal positions

I have researched this because I too had the same question.
The two primary terminals are unmarked on the stock dual fire coil because it makes no difference which terminal gets the + switched battery voltage, and which terminal goes to the points.

Re: 1949 Panhead

If the above post is in reference to the above photo than I would be cautious. Lots of money to go back to stock It's a custom chopper with lots of aftermarket parts, the expense would be overwhelming, and the results underwhelming so, why would one want to go back stock? The cost:benefit ratio wou...

Re: restore raked frame

How many different vendors or manufactures have gone to the expense and effort to produce a repop Harley neck forging?
I strongly suspect that they are coming from the same source.
Proof otherwise?

Re: restore raked frame

And V-Twin has a forged neck that looks exactly the same as WASCO's for $ 446.30 retail, $339.19, dealer price. They also have the web ans lower flange w/wo the lock kit for $145/$98 if one chooses to go that way...

Re: restore raked frame

Here's you $500 WASCO neck forging..... This could be done at home, but it would take some masterful finagling to get all four tubes seated in place..... They do list the lower/central web including the lock cylinder boss which might be an easier task to install with a little TIG welding to hold it ...

Re: 1949 Panhead

Is it that one that appeared on EBay recently? If so it was registered as a 1937 U and if I recall it had a custom frame but I could be wrong on that. As the other guys said post some pictures and get advice before you commit to purchasing. Be wary. Ron Hi, New to site so still working it out, But ...

Re: Flywheel marks

This is a god ol' shad tree way of doing this. Set the bike upright. If you have some sort of lift get it up to a comfortable height. Remove the primary cover so that you can use a wrench on the motor sprocket nut. Remove the timing plug and spark plugs. Place your thumb over the front spark plug ho...

How about a picture of this object frame in question? It's always fun to see what's been done in the past, and to judge the repairability.....

Re: What am i doing wrong? Rocker cover

Let us assume that the rocker arm are OEM Harley pieces and not some sort of aftermarket replacements of dubious quality. OEM Harley Panhead pushrods were all the same length it is only the aftermarket pieces that have longer or shorter rods, but that has no bearing on how far a rocker will travel. ...

Re: Oil Line Shut-Off Valve

Not that I'd ever tell on him, but I know a guy who ran a highly modified 45 engined bike for 12 miles with no oil, burned out the rings, but no other observable ill effects. The oil pump key had sheared. That was 20yrs ago, still runs fine. DD [/quote] Some years ago a buddy of mine called me one m...

Re: Oil Line Shut-Off Valve

Have only had two, neither had this issue. If a clean rebuild of the pump does not fix, then what is actually causing it? One possible cause is Trash. If you are not running an oil filter then you can expect trash to constantly be recirculating through your system and quite likely a piece will make...

Re: Oil Line Shut-Off Valve

Just some thought for the general reader: Replacing the oil pump with another one may or may not be any better than what you already have. Likewise for a "new" aftermarket pump. An NO$ pump may be difficult to find and be quite expensive. I solved the symptoms of sumping on my aftermarket Evo engine...

Re: Magneto only/No Lights

This is an easy one. If your genny's case terminals are unmarked you will need to open up the genny and remove either the dust cover band or the outboard end cap. Do this on the bench off the bike. And carefuller 'cause you'll have to deal with the brushes springing out of their holders, but a littl...
