Thread: Discarded frame

    Re: Discarded frame

    Have you checked it to be sure that your front and rear engine mounts are perfectly parallel? When the neck is removed without having a fixture holding them in place they always shift.

    I don't see anything there about the mounts.

    The photo was set up to display the technique. In practice there would be a straight edge on the front mount, the rear mount, and the axel mount.

    No worries Larry, we all get it. Some folks who have never done a bit of their own work just like to try to find fault where there is none.

    No doubt....again, a Like button. This guy has obviously forgotten more about HD repair than Mr H ever knew.

    Contrary to popular belief I have had a lot of frame experience. Working with the late frame Wizard Ron Grygus on many frames. He taught me a lot. He had made many frame fixtures for keeping and putting things back in line. One piece in particular was a 3" thick steel plate that bolted in place of the engine to keep the mounts true while the neck was removed. Many times i witnessed frames tweak themselves when the neck was removed or tubes cut.

    Chris,

    I guess you really haven't figured it out yet. I would have hoped you would have taken the hint and saved yourself some of the "Trying to talk yourself into believing you have superior knowledge on all topics Harley Davidson." Some people don't need factory frame tables, factory CNC machines or factory anything and still manage to do as good a job or better than the factory did with what they mange to fabricate themselves. You have run into that person. Have fun believing in yourself. Pound your chest some more.
