DESPITE their purely H-D Drivetrain engines, ( NOT BAKER TRANSMISSION MODELS ) I've had MANY "THUNDER MOUNTAIN" OVERPRICED Heaps come thru My Shop from silly little leaks to full blown issues of crank runout( beyond spec) to major failures of piston,ring,wrist pin and other issues in the lower end,split rocker Arms,bent pushrods,tappet failures, non functioning Oil Pump gears and lotsa other cam chest and other lower end issues . They arent worth a dime in terms of quality, construction and/or longevity issues AND WORTHINESS with the many I've worked on . BUYER BEWARE !!!!!!

Why would you make such a broad statement? I guess you are psychic and know how much I paid. I am happy with mine so far!!

LMAO......someone sure thinks a lot of themselves.

Can you explain why HD parts would perform differently in a TMCC frame?

You're a hoot, Narcissus. Enjoy your life and all your amazing (cough,cough) accomplishments, I'll enjoy my Keystone (which I got a pretty sweet deal on).

Default Keystone question

How do you remove the air cleaner cover. There is no screw on the outside of the cover. Does the center plate pry off?
​​​​​​​Thx
Keith

NICE!

My air cleaner is different, so I can't offer any advice on how to remove yours. Hopefully someone else will chime in.

I'll do a little research in the meantime.

Default Ultra Cool oil coolers

Any of you guys put oil coolers on these 103 motors. I'm thinking about the ultra cool model.
