    I also want to thank you for sharing this rebuild with us, Steve, in spite of the interruptions. I'm not a motor guy, so it was very interesting to me.
    I think you can relax, I think the motor will be just fine. You can't control what the owner does during the break-in period, though....

    Good work Steve and thank you very much for taking the time to document your rebuild. I'd like to see more of this stuff. Next time I tear mine down I'm going to have to go through my bottom end and it's going to take an entire AMCA village to raise this idiot.

    Thanks fellas.
    Fitted the engine to the bike over the weekend.
    The smell of that first fire up is sweet. Glad to relate that the engine runs beautiful and pulls like a sixteen year old.

    Walked into the workshop this morning, cleaned the decks and had to decide on the next job. 1946 Knuckle engine? or 1968 XLR engine?
    Hmmm? Which one? Could do both. The Knuckle was closest so got it up on the bench.

    What do'ya reckon? Can you put up with my convoluted diatribe. Are we in for it??

    Thanks fellas.
    Should we switch to channel Knucklehead or maybe Member projects?
