I have a 55 pan motor in a HD heritage frame with a softail 5 speed in it..I had a few issues with the pipes and I run an open BDL belt set up and have a offset front pulley spacer to make the belt line up....I also have a Santee D&amp\\;D 180 frame with an Evo in it...Its got the offset built into it so you can run a fat tire,,,this might cause some extra alignment issues or it might work in your favor...I do believe that you will have to run an open belt without your primaries to make it work.

hard to say, as some frames are meant for "cone head motors".&nbsp\\; A 1967 generation shovel has the generator case like than pan's and earlier, and might not work.&nbsp\\; I would talk to snatee, and find out before you start doing any work.&nbsp\\; Hope it works out for you!&nbsp\\; If you have the entire 1967 drivetrain, that is worth some $$$$$.&nbsp\\; VERY desireable, and would hate to see it get broken up and pieced out.&nbsp\\; If it were mine, I would get a Harley early frame and have it hardtailed, by that's just me.[&:]
