    Seat should be in today, and it's going to be in the mid 80's. I feel a test ride coming on, so I better go get my work done.

    Seat fits. I got a matching back rest too, but I still need to make a bracket for it.

    Only did about 20 miles this afternoon. Going to have to readjust the push rods, lifters never quieted down. I don't know how the shift rod got out of adjustment. It shifts and down shifts ok, but it won't go all the way into 1st gear. My speedometer is off 1 mph, and the carb still needs adjusted. But it passed inspection, and I got another 2 years on the tags.

    Yup, that's the plan, unless I hit the lotto, then it would a trip to Big Dog for a 330 K9, and a Mastiff for the wife.

    Chuck those LT spacers on the lifters in the trash. They don't help the noise any thats for sure and just make them a pain to adjust.

    I asked John Sachs about them in a post a while back and with just a mild build like most of us have we will never see any benefit just more hassle.

    I think I read somewhere that unless your floating around a 0.640 lift they are not super useful

    They were quite. I had to pull the nose cone and reseal some oil seepage, so I had to readjust. The problem I'm having is my valve springs are so weak, It's hard to bleed the lifters out. I had to do them twice the last time too. No biggie.

    Yea...the LT kit definitely makes your adjustments less forgiving in terms of noise.
