Now I godda hear what happened to Buddy Stubbs’ engine. Major it says on Cannonball. Gunked up and siezed? I’m wonderin? Thanks and Bon Voyage, Paul Sunday evening. 9/26/10
Hi Paul. Buddy had some trouble with the timing case on his 1915 X motor. A boss broke off that was supposed to locate one of timing gear bushings. He repaired it, but the motor siezed on him as he went across his home state of AZ. 😦 He is a great guy, and really accomplished a lot with that bike.
ouch – looks like a chipped valve seat.
Paul. You’ll dig this. The valve seats are INSIDE the barrel! To replace the valves, the head and barrel must be lifted, then the valves drop out of the cylinder. The head is only a bit of fins with the valve guides. The seats are part of the barrel. Very interesting.
That is interesting. As I can visualize it now from looking at the head.
Sorry guess I’m used to looking at flatheads.
