You never got the feeling that doing smokey burnouts on a 60 year old bike was a bad idea? Good thing its just the block, nothing major.

Yup and then as long as you wear this shirt at the top whenever you ride it, it will be fine.

How exactly did you crack it through the fill plug? Even welding that up will be a motherfucker, because the crack is full of oil, and you won't be able to TIG it up unless all the oil is gone. Maybe if you hot tanked that side of the case, but I doubt that you wouldn't make a huge mess. Is that the original case? VIN # on the tag? You might as well accept the fact that its a 49 harley, and it leaks the oils. Just wear a bread bag over your right cowboy boot to keep the oil off your leather chaps.

Its actually the timing plug thats lets you view timing marks on the flywheel, not a fill plug. I took it all apart last night ans the threads had already been repaired with a heli-coil at some point. The oversized hole required for the fix meant the casting ended up being really thin, and cracking. Granted, its been this way for the 11 years that I have owned it.... but nothing lasts forever. Yes, thats the VIN, and the only piece that actually means 49 panhead. I will have the case halfs run through a hottank to get them spotless and I have a guy that has done some beautiful things with broken aluminum who will drill the ends of the cracks, grind out both sides of the cracks, weld up the trenches and completely fill up the timing hole so that I can re-machine the surface and thread the hole. Not a big deal, but it did suck when I noticed it and I would have rather not had to take it back apart, but oh well. Should be back together within a week.

Took longer than a week, but its all better now. I took the carnage as an oppertunity to have the motor mouont pads welded up and re machined to correct some wear from 60 years of loose motor mount blots. I also repaired an always questionable main bearing race, had the cases allign bored and both cylinder decks flycut.

The weld looks pretty ugly, but I just consider it a scar. A well-earned one.

Nope. Engine is good, but now I bent the mainshaft that comes out of the trans and mounts both the clutch assy and countershaft sprocket. I really don't think that I am THAT hard on this thing. I am beginning to feel that tripleing the output of the engine may have been bad for the rest of the machine.

She goes like stink for a Harley though. When it goes.

Oh, and I think I seriously screwed something up in my knee while trying to kickstart it with the timing off, when I did get it back together the other day.

Face it, your motor is too old and your too old. Go buy a Schwinn.

OR A HONDA WITH ELECTRIC START :flipoff:
