beachcomber said:Hey CC,
you might have let me into your thread link !!!!!!!
After reading about your 2 engines I decided to have a trawl through to find if there was more info ......... and there is.
Just found your build thread .......... lots of useful info / pix. I'll be dropping in on a regular basis now!
So - are there any other Lonesome Twins hereabouts I should look into ?canyoncarver said:Thanks Beach! Glad to have you onboard. I've got a bit of momentum back on this one after setting it aside for the winter. I have a set of KZ1000 mag wheels I picked up that I'm considering going with. I prefer a rear disc to the drum but it would mean (to me) building new rearsets. Still thinking about that one...

Piggy back oil pump to feed [ in this case ] an oil cooler.
its alright, maybe we can all chip in and buy you a new cameracanyoncarver said:Yep, still working on this bike too. I did a quick mock up to see if I was going to like the KZ1000 mags on this bike. Yes I do. It might be a tight squeeze for the rear, I need to bolt it up and measure. Also, sorry about the image quality, the lens on my phone camera has been permanently "modified" by a certain 3 yr old grandchild who got his hands on it.
Sonreir™ said:They're often sold as oil pumps, but I think they're designed for marine fuel? It'll be interesting to see if the seals hold up to the heat. Most electric oil pumps designed for hot oil use (turbo scavenge pumps, etc) are not cheap. About $300 when I was pricing them before.
