View Full Version : 1928 JD Motor

06-14-2017, 12:45 AM
Hello! My name is Mitchell Skeene and I am 21 years old and I am a new member of the AMCA. I recently purchased a JD bottom end and would one day like to complete the motor and have a complete bike going down the road. I have lots of question regarding the engine and about the parts I need to make it complete. I know there are some issues with the motor such as the broken motor mounts and there are a few small cracks in the engine block. I don't know if these are easy repairs? Also I have been considering buying a cam cover for the motor, but I have seen a few variations of cam covers so I am not sure what type I need and what year parts will fit the motor? This is my first vintage Harley motor so this is all new to me, any information or advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you! :D

Broken engine mounts are common, an aluminum welder can repair them.

M.S. If you come to Dixon a couple of J model experts will be there. The sidewalk going into the main field bathroom will have Dave Kafton on the left side and George Hood on the right. They are the people that can head you in the right direction. Rich
