    Today i Parkerized a few parts, intake manifold, front and rear wheel parts and a few nuts, washers. easy and fun ! i draw filed the forging the transmission sits on, it cleaned up really fine with minimal work, there are some pits but nothing that will affect fit or function. i fit the gear shifter lever to the tank and to the shifter guide. also, i am enclosing some pics of when Marty MacCallom straightened the frame.

    here's 4 of the latest pics of my painted crank cases, transmission, rims and hubs. man 'o man ! i am really impressed with what a beautiful color Olive Green actually is. it may help that green's my favorite color........... but i cannot help but think when striping is on, the green will be even more beautiful ! or just call me crazy, since i am the one who has to live with the one and only color H-D offered in 1927 ! using Dad's can of touch up paint to match original color makes me feel in a way, almost like i am resurrecting his 27....

    i used Glyptal on the inside of the crank cases. only place i am going to use it. installed a few parts on the cases. will let the Glyptal cure til Monday evening, then plan to set left case in the engine stand, then assemble lower end.

    getting to point where i will be installing timing gear cover, i will be having questions about the 2 same size small round spacers that go on 2 of the long screws that hold gear cover on to crankcases.

    hope to make contact with Buchanan's this week, get my rims/hubs boxed up and sent to them. also, Tuesday, should be getting my 3.85x20 diamond tread clincher tires and tubes from Coker. will be a real milestone to get road ready wheels on bike. and engine and trans in frame. Am doing a good job of not getting overly excited !

    Also, will get transmission assembled while i am waiting for wheels to return from Buchanan's

    Good stuff !20160214_024047.jpg20160214_022552.jpg20160214_000528.jpg20160214_000521.jpg

    got my brake linings installed.

    mock fitted cyls, exh.valve stems a little too long. talked with Andy at Comp.D who i purchased valves from. he said it's typical to have to take a little distance off the stems. my extra length is enough that i'll have to free hand grind some of the distance off so my friend can do the squaring off in his valve grinding machine.
