I believe I can do it, I have enough experience with the small cranks, it obviously just takes more force to move the HD crank. From what I am reading though, it sounds like the crank in my 99 is probably within .001" anyway. Time will tell though.

What are you up to soft 02, are you building a bigger engine, or just making yours bullet proof?
We have the press done for pressing apart and back together just did not have a camera with me. I am not going to bring it home till we have everything done. Next time I go to my friends shop I will try and remember to take my camera. Yes the earlier cranks 99-02 are much better and they all so have the good motor sprocket bearings.

99% of spun wrist pin bushing are serviceable. The rods are a lot harder then the brass bushing. That is why I expanded all the bushings I put in. I have a 82 shovel motor I am building and both wrist pin bushings spun and I think I will be able to fix them no problem. Do not know about twin cams but they make over size bushings for the Evo and shovel. Keep us posted on your progress soft 02. I am subscribed to your build thread.

07 and 10 are not serviceable and 11-13 they got rid of the bushing all together. I got a bastard year test bed model.

soft 02 has a 07 softail. That price is totally absurd. That is why I use many Eastern parts as they are at least half of many others. They been making parts long before Jim's did. Have a set of rods I will be building the first of next week.

Could not find my video camera as well as Ken had is welding table full of other projects. Will try to make a video sometime. It use 3 different rams for taking and putting it together. As you cans see it is very heavy duty. Every thing was made as perfectly square which is real important.

Tell me what you think.

Pat. pending.

I only have a 20 ton not sure how it will work on installing new crack pins. When we first pressed the crank apart then first time on Ken s big 50 ton only got up to 16 ton to press it apart. But being we have nothing to go by since the big crank people will not tell you anything I fill we are on the right track.

All I wanted to know was how they did it and since they will not tell me anything I had to build something to get an good idea.

Working on the truing jib. We have it all drawn up but have not started on it. The way we hope it will work I should be able to turn it in the Rowe truing stand with out have to take it out every time to make an adjustment with out hurting the truing stand.

Here is a Tesla coil he made even the donut on top. It will shoot a spark up to about 6 feet. Whe sees something he likes he go home and builds it. He has many other net toys he made.
