Pa,
It takes all these little "tricks" to get an Indian up to "one good run". Its these little things take cost a lot for a little bit, which added up makes a difference to see at the finish line.

The 'pin' holes are not centered, but it looks like I have correct left/right pair:)

Halvor,
Sorry I do not know, they are scout by the lift you measured, the numbers put them down as early and might be a commercial entry with a torque result. To be sure, you need to plot the cams movement and then read it.

Say.. if I maybe have some heavy duty rods and 80" flywheels available..
would it be safe to build a 64" stroker for the street?
Or is the shorter titanium rods much better...?

Also..the crankcases are stock 1940 ..not much meat on the output side housing. How much more torque will they take..before things fall apart..:)


Just not sure how much I'm willing to throw into the sport scout..in money and parts.. Really, a rigid chief would suit my size better..
But the sport scouts are not too common around here, and they sure look good when parked.

Halvor,
You might think about not running the stock scout generator and machining off the gen drive off primary sprocket and slip an alumnum ring over the bearing area to beef it up.
Then run a generator off the back like a chief if you need lights, but the scouts I run don't use lights

My father showed me how to save them all. What year do you need? I might have a spare 37 Daytona scout right side.
