    Did you have the cases bored to take bigger cylinders?

     Yeh, I got the bigger jug's, over a year ago ( mate & I got two sets together.

    got flat tops JE. I was going to use Red Shift 630/585 cams but too much trouble sending cams to be done.

    I just want torque not worried about what HP it makes. heads will be done in Australia. & Australian pipes ( proud to support Australians )

    a mate I respect, said your HP & Torque is not controlled by the cam, the Heads dictate how much HP you make. so worth thinking about.

    Who’s the Aussie bloke doing your heads? I could be interested in having some work done, sending stuff overseas is an expensive exercise in these financial times..

     Cow at L. A Cycles. he has done heads for me for years. 1st one an old Shovel thats still going strong ( with trips around tassie & up to bundy not long back ) plus she run's standing quarter in 11's. Cow did the heads built the motor. ( lasted me 30 years b4 sold it )

    then I got a new twin cam dyna ( carb model ) it was slower than my old shovel. it was an 88" model. Cow built that motor & did the heads I only had mild cams Andrews 55G & a CV carb Pipes made in Australia. it got me to 11.2's @ 121mph no wheelie bar no electric shift stock frame stock wheels. I road that bike Sydney to Willowbank to race & road home. that bikes still going strong too.

    he has all his own machines has what he thinks to be best equipment, has a DJ 250i a flow bench, engine building room. and has been building fast Harleys all his adult life. but sadly no web page, or fancy marketing or salesman ship.

    but web pages, salesmanship & marketing. don't make Harleys fast!

    they also map EFI & he can tune anything from a panhead, to a pump fuel Harley carb or EFI to a Nitro Burning Top Bike.

    Best workshop in Sydney by far without a doubt. All word of mouth.

    Just spare 2-3 hours if Cow starts talking to you haha. Lovely bloke though.

    Jimmy is also a gun tuner. Has a lot of runs on the board.

     yeh that's for sure!

    I have known Cow since 1980, alway good at what he did.

    I like that Brash!! Cow say's I can talk too.


    yeh Jimmy a good tunner EFI. funny story about Jimmy. took his EFI twin Cam softail to track one Wednesday night. I was there with my Carb twin cam dyna. we happened to be on the lights together ( on the track ) we went ou the hole. I missed a gear. Jimmy gets away I catch him at speed traps. in pits, Jimmy say's he has the bottom end I come on up high.

    then we are lined up again, this time, no mistakes, I hole shoot him & leave him. Jimmy says nothing. that week had to take my bike to Cow, I left it. I call into shop and Jimmy has my bike on Dyno, Cow say's he is spying on your bike. we laugh.


    Jimmy don't tune my carb bikes, Cow does. but Jimmy tests them on Dyno, he is best dyno operator I've see,Marcus Wilson was a good dyno operator too.

    took the pistons to Comp Coatings Guilford NSW, had them dry lube coat the skirts. they did a nice job.HD Forums Australia - IMG_2333.JPG
    bead blasted heads to clean up, valves came out like new, intake port looks good stock. will press guid out & Cow will do a light port job fit larger intake valve. then press guid in and round off bottom of guid for improved flow.HD Forums Australia - IMG_2334.JPG
    exhaust port looks ok but will add some to port floor , light port job press out guid's round off end for smoother flow. fit high performance valves stock size 1.57". if you can see that line scribed in head, thats the guid to show new barrels.HD Forums Australia - IMG_2338.JPG

    got a few carb's I could use. this one is the S&S D it has adjustable air bleed and a thunder jet . I used this carb on my kick start only shovel for 15 years. that bike flew. also the S&S D is what fed the air & fuel into Australia's quickest Street Harley that ran, 9.8 138mph, no wheelie bar stock dyna twin cam frame, no ignition cut out just rider foot shift.
    Bob ( DaddyRacer56 ) road it I was at SID the day he set that time.
    they are a cool performance carb, very long body 2 1/4" butterfly. all sand cast alloy so very strong.
    I also have a woods Rebel Carb & an S&S L series, S&S B series, shorty G. just have to wait. flow test heads after they are finished then flow each carb on manifold and mounted to head. work out what would be the best.

    well got chamber to right cc so will be 10.5 comp, to go with Hammer 560 impact cams. ports been roughed up intake looked good so has just been matched to the Hammer intake manifold, welded up exhaust port floor for a D shape. getting new bee hive springs to set up for 650 lift new larger intake valves and new stock size 1.57 exhaust. setting it up for the 650 lift even though the cams only have 560 lift as want springs to last a long time. I plan on riding this bike a lot of K's and drag racing it.
    still have to finish heads then mock motor up check everything, have gear box set up for quick shifts.   cow will do gear box and flywheels he is the best I know at both those  area's I got some custom set up pipes.
    you can't see it in there pic's but fork have been custom tuned by Shock Treatment to the weight , & Shock Treatment also custom rebuilt the Ohlins Harley shocks, they are 14.5" 
    but bike will just stay stock looking. if I wanted looks I'd get a Panheads!!

    also tossing between what carb to use, have the Wood Rebel ( modified SE CV 44 ) Bob Wood call's it 43.5 as that is the size he machined Venturi too. 
    we will be runing it on Real time, on DJ 250i to get AFR. some carb's hard to dial in perfect. you might get them right up high but they will be wrong down low, or get them right down low but too lean up hi.
    will also play with manifold, I have a Hammer billet manifold made to match the CV44 & the late EFI heads. I'm a firm believer in air space, so have air there for high rev's.
    could also make adapter to put an S&S Shorty E carb the new ones look good and Cow is very good at tunning them. I'm not too worried about all out HP & TQ to brag, just want a strong runner that keeps runing for good, & can get to high trap speeds at drags. as if the speeds are high, I'll just have to learn to ride it , then times can come down. but I'm not as good never will be like Daddyracer56. still I love having a go!!

    Also got the Hammer Sledge billet air cleaner the 3" one lot of air space in there. I think it's the best air cleaner for Sporty, on the market. you put a big air cleaner & can see improved TQ. Cheers

    Heads almost finished, have the new valves & springs, Cow at L A Cycles  did seats on his Mira Centronic. It does really nice accurate valve seats & self alignes to seat via valve guide. with a nice finish for long life. Was Lucky Rams Heads had the valves I wanted in stock, these day's no one in Australia seem to stock anything as everyone buy online, I try to support Australian Business's. but just how I am ( old school ).  Also he has to check valve to valve clearance via the cam spec's. as larger intake valves & setting up for 650 valve lift. I was hoping to have it finished to ride up Gladston for the all bike drags ( maybe next year ) . but hope to get it to Sydney after I put a few k's on & get feel of it.

    Seats being cut on Mira Centronic , I like the angles he uses too improves flow & gives improved TQ.

    The heads with New Valves & Springs



    HD Forums Australia - IMG_2382.JPG

    Head , in this shot you can now see the stock valve guide is back in and the end has beed machined round in lathe for improved flow. the chamber has also been resized so comp will be 10.5 as Aron at Hammer recommend that comp to work best with these cam's, should yield 200 pound cranking pressure as maximum. will set up with 40 thou clearance as thats safe, as when you first fire a motor up first thing to grow is the piston. if you set piston clearance on tight side, you have to warm motor up before riding off or things kiss, ok for all out race motor you pull apart regular anyway. not for me I want to ride. Also forgot to mention, have high tensile studs to hold heads & barrels to cases.
    Also thought I would mention, only way to look at heads is with valves out, just looking at pic's of heads with valves in you can't see a thing. Also 30 degree swish would flow better, but I wanted flat tops , as I want to keep this bike long term , so if I want a rebuild very easy to order oversize flat tops from Axtell. Hammer told me they don't stock or make oversize's. they said the overheads for them stocking pistons for rebuilds down the line not worth the extra cost to them. to me buying a Harley was always a long term thing. you can resize these barrels out to 90", so I have plenty of meat.

    ha ha, you been around mate!! yes they are still there still going strong, all the Hammer 90 inch sporty's as well as 87inch (88 inch ) are all Axtell Barrels but Hammer use CP pistons. I wanted 87" (88) so there where oversize to buy over counter if I need latter on. the Axtell heavy but with cases bored out so far you need the strength of cast iron. also I'm an old Shovel man.
    Thank's mate, I've always wanted one of these sporty's with same bore as stroke, just to experience it before I'm brown bread.
    cheers

    Mate the nostalgia hit hard and so I looked up Sputhe , Delkron, Branch heads, RB racing, Arlen Ness , Baker,Lienweber(spelling ?), Patrick racing, and a  bunch of exhaust manufacturers most are still going man.
    Nostalgia tripping.
