Here's the motor with 0.020" over S&S pistons
, bored and honed (seasoned) Taiwan cylinders. This went in to Stett's on Oct. 14 and todays Nov.27, to give you a "down" time frame. http://stettsironhorseranch.com/
Original Stett-build had Wiseco pistons and 35K miles on them. Cylinders were blasted and painted with hi-temp satin black.
I used Harley-Davidson® 20W-50 from the first mile
to the last mile
. This time, I'm using Harley-Davidson® Grade 60, and maybe alternate between the Grade 60 and H-D 20W-50.
Thanks to Stett, Michelle, Jimmy & Jason. First class assembly. Worth way more
to my lifestyle than the reasonable sum they charged me to extend my motor's life. Saran wrap and blue tape are on me. It's my way of sealing what's already in place.
Tape over the oil supply and return holes when the motor is sitting around.
The AM regulator mount interferes with the vent line on the crankcase. Maybe I can slot the holes to move the bracket back, in towards the motor.
Lakeside Bill made this up in '88. He knew the AM ones were a problem fit, and that rotating the V. reg. 180-degrees, you'd end up with the terminals more accessible positioned towards the front.
