|Strange object found
in spaceship after it landed in my garage. Take me to
|Ok, here's a wacky
shot - the entire drive kinda mocked up on my workbench
to see how the inner primary will mate with the trans
now that I've ground it up.

there is now air where there used to be holes for bolts.
How will this play out? Dunno. Check out the pix below
to see other contact points with the clutch hub that
will have to be dealt with ("dealt with" = ground right
the hell off there).
Now some folks have nothing but
trouble at the "Dealer" - you know, the local authorized Harley
shop. Well, I explained to the guys at the counter what I was
doing (and other than tell me I was crazy) they mentioned that
they had a huge stock of take-off stuff that I could dig
through. Most of their customers want brand spanky new stuff
installed for them and don't give a hoot about hose nasty,
greasy used parts.
Well, after a bit of digging in "the attic" I came up with an
outer primary and inner primary that were in perfectly usable
condition. I was planning on painting or powdercoating these so
finish didn't matter as long as they weren't chrome. I asked the
guy what he wanted for the inner and outer primary and he said
"$40", well - I figured $80 for a complete set was a great deal
and thanked him. He told me, no - not $40 each, $40 for BOTH.
Needless to say, my 20s hit the counter before he could have the
opportunity to change his mind. For once (and after all those
years of list price) I got a deal from the dealer!
