Re: FS, Differential case and spider gear shaft...on hold

Ok, I was informed that the gear half is junk.

Re: Head question for 1922 engine

Should be easy to find a high head at Hershey.
Lots more available than a low, and nearly a “dime a dozen”.
Check the plug hole threads as well as for cracks and the gasket surface and water ports.

Re: Hard starting: I'm out of ideas.

I agree that the compression should be higher. Did a wet compression test yield any change ? If so, it could be dry/washed cylinders from too much fuel. I have to believe that the poor fuel mileage on the trip, obviously a rich mixture, has carboned the whole works. Enough carbon buildup on the valv...

No...
Maybe you will need a little heat to get it off, but it should slide off.

Re: Is a water pump necessary?

My car had a pump and it had a worn bushing, kept leaking. In it’s day, it served the purpose. A cheap alternative to a properly functioning radiator....

I have a few miles of H-D and other air cooled bikes in my experiences...

Re: Rear axle seal vs. shims

If you feel you must have a “slinger”, could you make it with a smaller ID and form a small “cone” inside to press fit it so it won’t move.

I have the same concerns of cutting the axle over time if floating around.

Re: Attention: Owners with Z head experience!!!

Marshal, I don’t have a direct answer to the PSI spec. But my opinion is that you won’t see a “true” reading until the rings and everything seats in...maybe 500-1000 miles.
Also there’s variations between engines...eg head gasket thickness, bore size, etc.

Drain the carburetor.
