Thanks everyone. Much appreciated.

I also go in for an MRI on my knee on Wednesday as they think it may have torn my ACL from the impact. Otherwise, feeling much better after PT. Had a headache...

Heart Transplant

Hi all,


So, my '81 was rear ended a few weeks ago and was hit on the rear left corner. Considering it was the corner, and he went underneath, the damage was really extensive. Crushed fender,...

If you don't already have one, pick yourself up a pushrod measuring tool.
That way you can install the rocker arms with the measuring tool set to stock length. Cover the tip of the valve stem...

Fortunately, the EFI head is already set up to have screw in bolts with rocker arms, so you don't have to pull out pressed in studs or the like. They're just the wrong thread size.

You want...

Hi Funke,



The Walker Y Pipe is 2.5" so be sure all your piping and muffler are also 2.5". I have a Dynomax turbo muffler and really like it. It's quiet during cruise and really opens up...

The most the Street Demon could do is give you better throttle response, but it won't add more power. A bigger carb does not equal more power unless the engine is under carbureted. A 500 is plenty...

They are the same bolt size as the head bolts, which comes in REALLY handy for lining the engine back up since head bolts are about 2 - 3 times as long.

Hi nhford300!

Thanks for the compliments on the build. :D
So far, I'm really pleased with it. Still working on getting the carb tuning just right, but it pulls HARD and feels a lot bigger than...

I love my engine, but if it'd been more feasible, I'd have gladly put in an electric motor and loaded up on batteries. The torque would be drool worthy.

A faulty voltage regular is, from my experience, only going to keep your battery from charging correctly.

On the starter solenoid, if the starter is spinning your engine, there's not much more it...

Wow, definitely interesting.

I love the idea of electric engines, but they really have to get the distance up. 200 - 250 miles on a charge just isn't enough. Maybe around town, but not for long...

Hi Scott,

About 5 days ago, an O'Reilly employee was swapping my pulley for me and used a tripod puller and destroyed my pulley. They gave me one for free to replace it.
It was the two belt...

The dual manifolds are still a single exhaust. The pipe afterward is a Y that brings them together.

As for the carb, you don't tune a carburetor for more power, you can only tune it to work with...

Hrmmm.... That's definitely an odd sound.

It reminds me of another I had when the bolts that hold the cam thrust plate against the block came loose, which allowed the camshaft to walk back and...

Hi cBigganz,

It's a little more involved with the EFI since the intake is in the way, but isn't...
