It is the holidays. Not uncommon for business correspondence to wait until the new year at this point. Hopefully. If not, you know where he can be found.

Why is it the Mech fault that there is still a vibration? Maybe that wasn't the source of the problem?? I have been reading all your post and it seems like you have been pushing that the problem was the crank. I feel for you but maybe you were wrong about it? IDK
ALL HARLEYS VIBRATE some more than others but its a fact. People have been complaining about it for ever. I for one don't mind the way my bike feels but I knew going in that its not a super smooth ride like my Japanese sport bikes have been.
I have heard of places that can track vibrations on a vehicle with sensors on a dyno. Maybe that should be your next move if its really a problem.

Tatro machine is a pretty reputable shop. It's not his fault that you told him you wanted him to do the work. He did the work that you wanted but it didn't fix your problem.

Also what are valve sleeves? Do you mean it's leaking from the pushrod tubes and primary

I asked him to find out what's causing the vibration. He checked the runout and said ".020". He diagnosed it, I didn't. Yes, leaking from the rear pushrod tube and at the bottom of the primary.

Is the vibration exactly the same as before, or is it different now?

A leaking pushrod tube is most likely a non-issue... It's usually just an out-of-place o-ring. Can you see where the primary is leaking from? Is it just the outer cover, or is it the inner primary?

Maybe a long shot, but could you have lost enough oil from the pushrod tube that a low oil situation is causing the new vibration?

The excessive vibration is diminished but still not normal for this bike. Primary leak is at the bottom of the outer cover.

Hmm... Primary drain plug is at the bottom of the outer cover...
