    I used Eastwood high temp X2 gloss black paint.. found out after all the machine work was done that should have been done after powder coating due to high heat and having to recheck everything after powder coating.. So I was already 1600 into it for boring, pistons, new valves and cam..

    Looks nice, couldn’t really see it in the first set of pics. Hope it holds up for you. I really like the Black Motors like the HD bikes, (less rubbing needed).:old2:

    Yes, I used 1/8" pinstripe tape. I buffed em with 180 grit sand paper disc on my angle grinder to knock off any imperfections, then hit em with 500, then 1000, then wet sanded them with 1200 and used my bench grinder with a buffing wheel (no polish) before I taped them and just that made them pretty damn shiny. Just so after all I had to do was pull the tape and hit em real quick with some polish. 20171028_152110.jpg

    I like the look after I did it.. I was Leary at first, but that's exactly why I did it. It'll take you a whole weekend to polish then things and it only lasts for a few months if that before you're at it all over again.. I love the shiny polished aluminum look.. but man I am extremely busy and really just don't have time for it ya know.

    So I need some insight on what could possibly be wrong here.. I don't trust what I'm looking at and I've already adjusted the intake push rods both 2 times with the same results. As you can see the front one has more threads showing the. The rear one.. n e ideas.. 20171101_211636.jpg

    What did they look like when they were laying out? were they the same length rods? last time I had mine out one is shorter then the other, I forget if it was the exhaust rods or the intake, but they are different lengths and should be consistent, 1 long and 1 short per cylinder.

    I believe you are right, one long and one short per cylinder, but I also don't know which one is which.

    •S&S Quickee Pushrods for all big twin engines contain twolong and two short pushrods. All Sportster model and 1999–up big twin pushrods are the same length.• If S&S adjustable pushrod kit contains four di erent lengthpushrods, the longest pushrod is for the front exhaust, next longestis the rear exhaust. Of the two shorter pushrods, the longer one is the front intake, the shortest pushrod is the rear intake. The pushrod kits for the 1999–up big twin engine have two di erent lengths—short for the intakes, long for the exhausts.

    Yeah.. all that was kind of like a gimme.. I didn't question it at all because the two intake were the same in adjustment.. but just to make sure I took them all out.. yeah they were all installed correctly, so tonight I will try again.. Which really sucks because I planned on polishing tonight cuz the rally is tomorrow. Lol.. but I'll figure it out sooner or later

    Do you remember the breakin procedure required from S&S when the bikes were new? That was 500 miles:yesnod: and there was a specific RPM range to keep it within
