    Thanks Chuck.

    So, this would be considered an 'accessory' aftermarket item that was available in the 1950's and 1960's. I must admit, having worked on many D.C. Linkert Sportsters back in time,...

    Blimey, you're exactly correct Rick - its a tickler! I blew through it, but didn't think to push it down! I had ticklers on my Amal Monoblock carburetors on my Triumph, but I've never seen them on...

    I wish I knew which dents are O.E.M. and which were 'owner applied'. Do you still have the mufflers and bracket? If so, how much would you be asking?

    I agree with VPD. I've used the Harley Heat resistant spray-can paints since 1970 with great results. They changed it in some way in '78 but I never experienced any difference other than the design...

    Thanks 59xlh, ,but I think I'll continue looking. I probably could repair the road rash with a layer of brass, as its fairly deep but it's a lot of work.
    Thanks for responding!

    Cotton,
    I removed the low speed needle from the knob and it's length is 3.520". Therefore, it looks like it's the correct P/N 27336-27 and not as I previously stated.

    Cotton,

    I agree that the M35 is the culprit, as the M74B works fine with the settings around 3.5 and 1.5. I don't believe that the needle settings are the problem, as the problem reflects a lean...
