    He installed them here originally had the quickee Rods so 2 long and 2 short.

    Longs in the front shorts in the back. Not sure how he installed them this time though, I didn't see this project.

    So just an update, used a torque wrech to loosen the bolts to verify my torque which I did after I torqued them originally.. torque wrench set at 36 didnt snap once loosening the bolts up. One was finger loose. Gaskets not blown, just all leaking badly.. as far as the push rods go, the front intake was threaded less then the rear.. no one knows but it ran great for 100 miles, still ran great when I took her apart.. just leaking oil.. lol.. I'll throw the push rods in in the morning and do the adjustments and keep y'all posted

    Is this your first S&S rebuild?
    I am considering rebuilding the 107 , but the motor is one thing I don’t have experience on and really don’t want to f it up. I have tore a few down to the pistons but had a shop finish it. Just wondering on the difficulty?

    Yeah, my first rebuild and actually very very east.. just should have followed my instincts on torque specs is all.. next time I'll fallow my gut for sure.. being an ASE mechanic for many many years I knew better to increase the torque in slower increments to crush metal gaskets to actually seal.. I'm sure u will be just fine. The know how was well worth every minute and the power will be well worth the money..

    Okay, so after throwing new gaskets in her, following the Cometic torque specs and installing a new starter she seems good to go..

    The second time he started it, that's what mine does sometimes. Kind of has to grunt through a cycle to get her going. I still have to check my battery though.

    While starting the bike put fingers on compression release and make sure they aren't popping back up they should stay down as long as start button is pushed but like stated before it's possible it's a low battery

    My bike does that after not being ran for a while. I have put a meter on it and it' a voltage issue as I dont use a tender because i have heard its actually bad for your batteries if you are a regualr rider. They are more meant for those who have winter months they dint ride and whatnot. Bike hasnt been ran in a little over a week and it never fails itll do that .. so im going towards battery issue if ur bike does that every time or compression releases. Before I got mine fixed it did it every time.. so it' one of the two in ur case for sure

    And Kevin is right to a point, they should go back and forth between cylinders for compression of coarse.

    What did you do to fix the rocker box noise?

    Nothing.. still have it.. so the breakdown shows no bushings on the inside of the rocker carrier, that rod is where that noise came from.. that rod is basically chattering back and forth.. more or less rolling and ticking against the bolts. N e ways, I have put less then 300 miles on the bike since the end of October when I put her back together just because of anger and disgust after dropping almost 2k on this for someone to tell me it's good and it's not. I washed the bike yesterday and put about 80 miles on her and she ticked like a grandfather clock on crack, just not good..

    These are the bushings it's in the rocker ARMS...

    If these bushings are worn them the rocker arm shaft can wear too. Get them both. Bring the rocker arms to your buddies because S&S bushings need to be reamed when installed and the reamer is $200 alone.
