A Kick only magneto Harley-Davidson is hard to tune... As the pipes are made in 2" tubes, a set of baffles and torque cones was necessaries... The torques cones are made for Evo types pipes, so it was necessary to reduce the diameter of their flanges to 1-3/4" and then welded to the pipes..
The mag is tune following Morris Magneto procedure.
For the break in, I use an S&S E.. with a .295 on the intermediate jet and a 74 for the main.. Later I will probably come back on the S&S B that I firstly wanted to use..
The foot clutch is also important to make it soft, otherwise start up is too hard.. (mine isn't soft enough yet)
Again, many thanks to Pops Garage (South Gate) for his precious help..
I have to let you know that I have started a new project bike in L.A. with my friend Pops.. I had brought to L.A. last year a 1973 Shovelhead case with nose cone and two barrels from Tahiti Island to Pops Garage.. I found at Veteran Stadium swapmeet a set of STD panhead heads completes with valves, rockers and covers.. And Pops made the rest with new parts..
AB Andrews camshaft, solid lifters, .10 over pistons,
New oil pump
The Super B carb on left comes from my actual prject in Tahiti (Old Gand Dad).. It have a problem now and I brought it to Pops for rebuild. The other parts on right also come from Tahiti for chroming.. they are from a 1980 Shovel that I working on for my friend Matini..
