Thread: 65 panhead

  1. #1

    Default 65 panhead

    Are the two F bolts in the cases on a 65 FL cad plated or parkerized.

    Shovelhead!

    All of the circle F bolts in my stash are cad, for what that's worth...

    I believe the rear motor mount bolts in 1965 were parkerized and some were Foster.

    Had my '65 out in the driveway pimping for the Perkiomen meet. Will look at the parts book, but how are you folks seeing rear engine mount bolts with the skid plate installed?? Apologize for my stupidity but figure I just lay on my back and look up? Skid plate is there so can't see engine mount bolts. A photo would be good. Otherwise I'm guessing parked. But a photo would tell me what to look at for Circle F, blah, blah.

    You can see the heads of them below the crossover exhaust pipe. That will tell you the finish.

    Circle F bolts are made by Foster. Foster is easier to type than Circle F.
