    The problem is not technical, it's that the people doing the masking don't know what the parts are, or what they do.

    36 to 52 WL cylinders are the same.
    36 to 52 WL heads are the same.

    Ted bught the name, but AFAIK Sifton never made any Indian cams, so you really don't know what you're going to get.

    Not extensive experience, but I've never heard of a single piece of debris breaking every tooth off. Most common: it breaks one, and falls to the bottom of the cam chest.

    Too cold is bad. Easy test (if you don't have a candy thermometer): run the bike hard, place your palm on the oil tank. If you can count past 5 it's cool enough (150-160). Even 180 is safe but less...

    This is the first I've heard of S&S having a "JIM'S" problem (looks good, can't fit w/o major work).
