Thread: KH tappet and guide questions

    Default KH tappet and guide questions

    Hello,
    I am sorting through a '55 KH basket case, in which a lot of the parts are turning out to be early Sportster. Comparing the tappets and guides with a lot of websites, appears that the tappet guides are correct for the KH (though two are damaged and will need replacement). With the tappets, I am guessing that three of them are KH and one is a KK,KHK,KR. This one also had a shorter adjustment screw. The tappets are all in pretty good shape and all are the same length. I am guessing that I can use them all if I get a longer screw for the odd-ball lifter.
    If I am missing something I would appreciate anyone correcting me.

    Also, can the 45 (WL,G, etc,) tappet guide be used on the KH, despite the slightly raised lip on the 45 guided?

    p.s. If this virus curse was able to have a (very, very) thin silver lining it is that it gives time to devote to sorting out all the boxes and milk crates of parts. Keeping me out of the wife's hair.

    No, they are totally different.
