    Well Poo ......



    Torn the crank down to weigh up the rods, etc for balancing .....
    Side thrusting, killed the rods, replacements are on the way ...

    Flywheel got chewed on pretty good too ... Will machine it for a thrust washer....

    ..... My stuff .....
    .. Still working on the jugs ..



    Seems like a few months has went by without doing any more work to these super rare Oem jugs...

    Wanted to powder-coat em, but the factory rough casting made for some work to clean em up before they see powder.

    Had to fill a few spots with weld and now there will be a few spots they will see some lab-metal...

    Won't be long till they have some paint on em now.
    .. On the downhill slide ..!!



    Well Poo ... !!!



    Dang near a whole can dried out ....
    Got a new can on it's way ...







    Done with the Powder, now to do a step lip on the head gasket surface and finish hone to running size .... Then these puppies will be ready to install ..

    Back to the S&S Shovel ...

    Balance work is done ....



    Pulled eight grams from the underside of the piston ...
    Three more to get to the target ....

    Those three will be pulled from the rod giving us the needed 11 grams in-total ...











    What do ya think .... 500/550 maybe 600 ft-lbs of torque .... ??

    Time to true em ...



    Going to have a nice new look on it ...
