    Questions about my WL

    I am gatejring parts and I am 1400 miles away from where my bike is. I'm old and I forget but I have some honest questions about my WL

    # (1) what side is the nuts on if you are replacing the case bolts with original bolts and nuts?

    # (2) what is the torque value on the case bolts?

    #(3) is there a sequence that I should torque them?

    # (4) can I remove one bolt at a time and replace them with OEM without ****ing something up?

    # (5) Do the bolts that bolt the engine to the frame all point in the same direction? I could put three with the nuts up but had to put one down. they are temporary I dont have the cotter keys in them yet.

    #(6) Is there a certain inner primary attachment that serves to oil the chain that I should be aware of?

    #(7) How many links do I need in my primary chain to do a 30+ tooth engine sprocket?


    I hate to sound like a ignorant person but I am when it comes to 45's . I am trying to get this 45 put together and running as soon as I can, I have been gathering parts for over a decade. I got a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer in August, I dont know if modern technology can cure me or fix me up and I will live for a long time or if I will succumb to this before next winter I appreciate this family of people that have been so kind to me. The veterans administration has disabled me yet I am going to keep on working as long as I can.. Thanks in advance for all the info you can give me.This is a helluva group and I am proud to be a part of this

    Re: Questions about my WL

    # (1) what side is the nuts on if you are replacing the case bolts with original bolts and nuts? There are two bolts that are blind hole and go in from the left, all the rest are double ended studs with nuts on both sides. The bottom ones are special diameter and act as dowel pins to align the cases.

    # (2) what is the torque value on the case bolts?
    H-D never assigned any. Use a standard chart if you feel the need.

    #(3) is there a sequence that I should torque them?
    No, but use common sense.

    # (4) can I remove one bolt at a time and replace them with OEM without ****ing something up?
    If the alignment ones aren't there you could have an issue, they need to go in first. But if the cases are bolted together they may not.

    # (5) Do the bolts that bolt the engine to the frame all point in the same direction? I could put three with the nuts up but had to put one down. they are temporary I dont have the cotter keys in them yet.
    They all point UP and come in from the bottom.

    #(6) Is there a certain inner primary attachment that serves to oil the chain that I should be aware of?
    There is a short pipe coming out of the engine that directs the oil. It is part of the crankcase.

    #(7) How many links do I need in my primary chain to do a 30+ tooth engine sprocket?
    Standard size 100 links

    Re: Questions about my WL

    Thank you, the person that rebuilt my motor ended up charging me 2700.00 for the rebuild he was supposed to re build the carburetor and check the transmission. I havent been home in 6 months I am going through radiation treatments at the university of Colorado and I am only half through. I should be ready to go home by March 15th 2020 and I might just stay a while. Out of the last year, I have been gone 10 1/2 months. I was at home 20 days in 2019. That dont leave you much time to work on any bikes. I have had the fenders and tanks off of my pan for three years and they have been painted two years and I havent had the time to put them back on. Life is like a roll of toilet paper, the closer you get to the end, the faster it goes. Thanks again

    Re: Questions about my WL

    What are the threaded things that go into the left side of the crankcase that holds the inner primary? I hate to be asking so many questions but a couple of mine are messed up and I was wanting some new ones off of e-bay unless some of you have some you want to part with. I am in Colorado, my bike is in Kentucky along with my parts stash. I am doing this from memory which is being powered by a 66 year old brain. I know I need at least two of those I have only been home 15 days since January 1st 2019.
