    Default Panhead Inner Primary Cover

    Good Day,
    I purchased an aftermarket inner primary for my '53 FLE but, as suspected things don't line up correctly. Before I commit to the necessary bending, welding, and grinding I thought to reach out to see if anyone has an inner primary cover for a foot-shift machine for sale or trade. This is the cover without the rear chain splash shield, 60620-52. I'm only interested in covers that are in very good to excelent condition. However, if anyone has an old beat up OEM inner cover that I might use for measurement and alignment for modifying my aftermarket cover, I may be interested in that as as an alternative.

    Please respond in this forum or directly to my email address: WPedalino@CaldwellMarine.com.

    Thanks,
    Bill Pedalino

    Boy - over 100 views and not one response. These things certainly have become scarce!

    I have a new Vtwin replica inner primary that I'm wrestling with now and although it looks very nice, it's mis-manufactured. The Vtwin cover is probably ok for a chopper or non-judged machine where obvious changes can be made, but for an accurate restoration this will probably be a task, if even possible depending upon the extent and locations of the inaccurate bends.
    And.... I'm not the best sheet metal guy! Without an original to match it up to, it will be quite difficult to see where the adjustments have to be made.

    I notice that Paughco also sells a replacement cover. Maybe they're NOT from the same Manufacturer/importer and maybe of better quality. Has anyone had experience with the Paughco inner cover?

    Finally, if anyone has a good OEM cover that I might BORROW, I would be very appreciative.

    Bill,
    Ebay is the best source for covers.
    Nice covers are expensive, beat up covers are cheaper and more common, you can repair a beat up cover or use it to fix yours.

    Paugcho started their business with the manufacturing of inner primary covers in Hollywood in the late 60's. Good stuff Maynard!

    Just put a new Paugcho inner on my 50 Pan project and it fit up perfectly on the 1st try. My original old outer went on with minimal fuss too. IMG_20201122_131844_298.jpgIMG_20200830_162707_287.jpg
