|Yeah, that's a
hydraulic clutch actuator I got off eBay. It's a Pro-1
"second" - but if there's a nick on it, I can't find it.
It was pretty cheap, under a hundy as I recall.
You can see how the trans fits in
and the final drive gear will work with a chain. There's some
other funky seals I think I gotta use, because basically this is
a softail conversion to a chain drive (even though it's going
into a swingarm frame).
I went with a hydraulic Pro-1 clutch actuator from eBay. I got a
great price on it because it was a second, tho' I couldn't find
anything wrong with it. It looks very cool and will allow me to
route the clutch "cable" (actually an old brake line I had lying
around) without worrying about keeping the line straight for
pull. I did have to get another hydraulic reservoir for the
handlebars for the left hand side. It still looks pretty cool on
the Z-bars because both reservoirs are pre-8o's style.
Italian Carb HELL! (Well, not really). I ordered a bunch of
parts for my Dell'ortos from motorcyclecarbs.com. Some stuff got
mixed up, but they sent another order and made it right. They
were really good to deal with and really seemed to know their
stuff about these bizarre carbs I'm stuck on using. Oh, SCORE -
got a manifold on eBay that marries Dell'ortos carbs to a shovel
motor. This is a fairly hard part to find as Rivera doesn't make
I bought the book "How to
install a Dell'orto DHLA carb on a Harley although we have no
idea why anyone would want to try this stupid shit"
and went through the carb jet-by-jet checking that it was set up
properly for a mid-sized shovel. Most of the jets seemed either
to be the right thing or pretty close...I hope...
