I have a 1986 Evo with about 390K on it, It has 20 over pistons, had the bottom helped a little, leaks oil like the Drake well and needs welding on the pinion case. However it still starts and will run the Interstate at 65 when needed. However I need to do something and I ask for some suggestions.
1) H-D remanufactured engine, removal/installation by me
2) remanufactured vs a new engine from H-D
3) new parts and work done in and out of house by machine shops and most reassembly by me
I have keep this engine running this long, have done most all the engine repairs that were require up till now. A new motorcycle is out of the question and I do not want a used one. Yes the transmission is good I just did it in 2009. Time are hard and funds are tight so at 65 years of age I need an easy way to go. Besides my 47 UL is like me old, and this Evo has kind of spoiled me.
