panhead top on shovel bottom
hi everyone. i am a young 21 year old college student that has a very strong interest in the older harleys. they have character, and i appreciate their mystic that i find in them. anyways,i decided to join this site to find some help. i have zero people in my life to help me with this stuff and i want to learn. so, iam going to have some questions to give to you all. i would greatly appreciate some advise. anyways, i am going to post my first question on here.
i have a 80' 79' shovel bottom. i would like to run some 61' heads on my shovel barrols. other than having to convert them to outside oilers (since they are pre 63' pan heads) what else am i going to have to take into consideration, IE: pushrods, valve bindind ( difference in shovel and pan cams) if any, ect... i want to know all there is to know about taking on an operation like this. any words of advise would be appreciated. i am going to post this in the panhead forums as well. please bare with me as i havnt been into this stuff very long, and really want to learn from some veteran mechanic/bikers. thanks alot in advance!!!!!
