:whoop::whoop::whoop::old2: Guess what.


It runs, all the lights work. Just waiting on the seat, so I can run it down the rode and do some finial adjustment to that carb.
Looks great Shannon that red really makes the chrome and aluminum pop.

Nice work and done a few weeks ahead of schedule!

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.

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.
