Re: Oil filter on timing gear cover

That's it. Dumps clean oil onto the timing gear and into the pan.

Re: Long running boards

These lug nuts are a challenge to make and I haven't found anyone to make them yet. Are you offering? I am not a machinist. Although I did take machine shop classes in school. :-) When I need something made I ask friends for recommendations on a shop to take the job to. I have had Harley parts made...

I'm wondering if in your "ton of stuff" you might have some early '28 lug nuts? See picture.
You have the dimensions. Find a friend with a lathe and run a batch of them.

Bob,
I just tried to do a search on Parts Voice. H-D is not on their drop down list of manufacturers. How do you search for H-D on it?

Re: Build Year

It would most likely be a 1931 Model. The model year is not the same as a calendar year. The next years models usually hit the showroom in Sept these days.

Re: lifting cab off of frame

Some things have no explanation. For instance it is well known that in 1932 Henry quit numbering engines and put the number on the bell housing. This continued through the Flathead era. BUT!

It had been doing all those things for the last 88 years without being butchered. You could have used you new gas tank without destroying a good one. Good gas tanks are hard to find.

Re: lifting cab off of frame

I have searched and may have missed it. But is there a step by step anywhere, here or someplace else, that shows how to lift the cab off of the frame to retrieve the id number? How high is needed to be able to view the number? This is for my 31. Thank you. On my '28 the number is just in front of t...
