    If this helps, Fletcher,...

    I believe these are the buckles.

    They might still be in my buckle box if you need them.

    Don't forget, LRC,...

    At sixty-over you will want to use stress plates when honing the bores.

    My memory is worthless, Oilcan,..

    But I think BUCOs had only a curve at one end of the side 'ribs'.

    Giuliari's had side ribs similar to HD.

    It is the front mount we should focus upon. It has...

    The last time I shopped Progressive, Folks,...

    They asked intrusive Second Amendment questions, implying they wouldn't insure me if I gave the wrong answers.

    I knew that if the points were closed, Ryan,...

    That it would drain the battery; If it cooked the coil, I'd guess that was one helluva battery.

    Leaving the switch on cracks coils, Ryan!?!

    This is new to me, as is everything electrical.

    That explains a lot, Ryan!

    So much for 'octane boosters', huh.

    Can anyone identify the mounts in my previous photo?

    Since its now about family, Folks,...

    Only recently have I learned the young lady in this pic is 'Laura White',
    and the photo taken around Seattle.

    The rider is ninety-six now I think, and my...

    Memory fails, Folks,...

    But wasn't it some 1961 productions that were missing one timing line for their dual-point ignitions?

    I made a tool to gauge the piston position through the sparkplug...

    Because of "gear lash", Ryan,...

    Static timing is inherently retarded. That's why the early OHV manual (pg. 79) shows the mark at the very rear edge of the hole.
    If you static time to the front...

    The first thing I would do, Ryan,..

    Is to strobe it to where the line is in the front of the hole, and see if anything improves.

    If its clacking away from stop signs before the tank is hot, no...

    I put my '65 timer on a Sun once, Tom!

    There was barely any curve at all, advancing almost instantaneously; Not really an 'auto-advance', but an 'auto-retard' when stopped.
    But it did diagnose my...

    Let's think a bit, Ryan,..

    Even if its conjuring without any real numbers.

    The motor needs to warm up to a natural equilibrium to be efficient.
    It is ~eighty percent air-cooled, and perhaps at...

    Sorry to intrude where I know I shouldn't,.. Ryan,..

    But I had some direct observations of various cooler assemblies, upon my own stroker hack, even though it was decades ago.

    Maybe, Clark!

    The first one was labeled as Hank Reiman (whom I had the pleasure to meet..), and the second was labeled as Sam Arena.

    There are remarkable similarities.

    Is it the "screenshot" that makes your pics so small, Mike?

    My 'snagged' copy seems clearer.

    More jumps?

    More that I previously uploaded, Folks!

    The last one is certainly one of my favorites.
