So I finally was able to pickup my engine covers from the Powder Coater yesterday. Now that I'm back on track... i'll work on getting the motor back together, exhaust mounted and onto the body work.

I got out and started getting the motor back together today...
Here I have the heads and push rod tubes installed and torqued down.


Rocker boxes installed


Rocker box covers installed.


Next up I'll get the covers on tomorrow... now off to the movies with a hot blonde.

Got the right side mostly together today. Getting excited... now onto the left side and then the exhaust.

  • You've been mostly-dead all day.
I'm learning about these bikes while I work on my first one.  How do you deal with the crankcase breather since you're not using the hollow bolts to mount your air cleaner bracket?  I just forked out $45 for two of those bolts, but I'm curious if there was an option I missed.  Forums talk about rocker box breathers, but I'm not sure I have that option.

The bolts are gun drilled and vented below the head and there's a pathway into the carb inlet... so it's as you'd expect, it's just hidden well.

You can see in this diagram how it's put together... (these intakes are CHEAP and built really well.)



You need a lathe, best investment I ever made. paid for itself many times over.... I'd drilled off the shelf bolts myself before forking out moolah like that on specialty bolts. Sportster parts are all over ebay and aftermarket... post wanted ads on HDforums and even CL or Facebook market place... not hard to find what you need.

I have a lathe, but for some reason I bought the bolts off the shelf.  I wasn't sure if there was something I was missing in how it all worked.
