Yup, you probably know about my Panhead… Love her to death.  My good friend, Steve “BrewDude” Garn was the man who did the good work on her… put her in a new green dress and worked over the engine.  When she came home to me, there were a couple things I wanted to tweak as well as a bad set of gaskets in the rear cylinder… it happens sometimes.  Luckily for me, Steve walked me through a few things on the phone as I pulled the engine and replaced the faulty gaskets.


Since then, I have had a few issues here and there.  I need to replace a diaphragm in the petcock and I think I am getting an intake leak at the manifold… surely from not getting everything put back exactly right after taking the engine back out.  Live and learn.  I am also on the lookout for a new (used) carb to put on her.  She is a 49 bottom with a 57 or so top… If you have anything that you think will work for me, send info.


Anyway, thought I would put up the pics from the engine pull.  Give you an idea of what she is looking like!  Thanks to all my boys in the club for coming out to lend a hand, hold a light, or just stand by and laugh.  Love you all! SFFS!


Love, Respect, and Panheads Forever,
