Has anyone given any thought to using a XL evo bottom end in a WL? Some machining would be required on the sprocket (or cases)and pinion shafts,but the advantage would be the 3-piece bottom end and the shorter rods(as in strokers) BREWSKI

This gives even more problems than XL wheels, since the pinion shaft is even larger, drive not compatible with the 45 pump etc.

PANIC,you're right,the pinion shaft has to be machined to fit even the earlier XL's. I knew someone that put a put a ironhead XL bottom end in a WL,he machined the sprocket shaft to fit the WL bearings,I didn't agree with that;it would have been better to machine the cases for the TIMKENS. BREWSKI
