That Digger Ruuuun??

McCoy was all pissed up friday night and kept yelling at Noot across the room, "That Digger Ruuuuun?!?!?!?"

Like the drunk outside the bar who really doesnt care that it runs, purely wants to see you waste your time trying.

Well folks, IT DOES RUN!

This weekend I was able to work on the bike pretty much all day Saturday. We came to the conclusion that having a running bike by Friday was not going to happen anymore. Sometimes life does not give a fuck about your plans. So instead now the goal is to have the bike just look like a bike. Could use a little Chopper God help on getting my paint done. I am a glass half empty guy, so it looks like I will be just getting drunk this weekend and telling tall tales.

Money is starting to turn into tools and equipment!

Smooth Jugs and old lube

Last night we got the cylinders and pistons installed. It seems like baby steps but we keep finding things that need to be replaced. The original shop manual had some great pointers. such as "reassembly is essentially the reverse of disassembly" Thanks for the tip.

Dont forget on old motors you can only put old oil in. 40,000 years in the earth before it got in the bottle, right Noot?

I Got The Shaft

Sucks gettin the shaft right noot?? Going to put this shorter mainshaft in this tranny to get rid of this outer bearing carrier deal. This will move the clutch hub inward on my flathead. I need to get the motor sprocket in closer to the engine!

Engines that Breath!

On your Big Inch Twin Cam there is some power to be found in enlarging these breathers. I've found 2-3Hp here. Take it for what it is...

You bet I am in love.


Was able to get the bottom end back in the bike this weekend. Also dialed in the rear fender and sissy bar. Working on mocking up the bars and have some more tweaking to do. I also clearly need to lose some weight cause I look like a monster on this thing.
