Re: Getting Oil to the Overhead Conversion

OK I'll follow that recommendations. Thanks. After considering everyone's input I think I'm going to reroute the the external line that feeds oil to the head. I'll post a picture as soon as I get it...

Re: Getting Oil to the Overhead Conversion

I think I could probably get by with a 3/16" line. I might try that instead of 1/4".

Re: Getting Oil to the Overhead Conversion

I have given this some thought. Then I'll probably be installing a restrictor at the head to reduce the flow as recommended by the head manufacturer.

Re: Is My Cam Going Flat?

You are correct, is didn't explain this very well. I set it a .013 on the heel and rotated the crank in reverse about 180 degrees and check the clearance and it has grown to .025.

28-29 Roadster Top Iron Corner Material

I can't seem to find any replacement tack strip material to go inside the 28-29 top irons. Does anyone have any suggestions for replacement material? Nobody seems to sell this stuff
