Default Another 90" Hammer build.

So I have not only decided to go for a 90" build for my 2005 rubbermount 48,000 miles, based on SportyTrace's one, I have also decided to provide a bit of a writeup and some half assed photos!
I am not an IT guru so be gentle. But I will take extra shots and answer whatever I am able to.
So I want to do as much as possible myself because that's half the fun....besides the actual parts from Hammer of course.

This bearing was really loose and worn out. The seal was not leaking.

My neat little press I got on special from "Supercheap Auto". It's pretty good but I also have access to an adult version if I need one. So far the bearings have been pretty easy to remove. The 5th gear mainshaft bearing pictured above just about fell out after I had the case in the oven! at 50 c for half an hr.

Ready to go and ask a mate to use his mill to set up and case bore.
All the parts came away easily enough. The most trouble are those damn snap rings on the trans shafts. What a pain!
I disassembled the shafts a bit and then pressed out the mainshaft and countershaft alternately until the mainshaft came loose...then finished the countershaft. Harley have a stepped tool to press both at once but i'm cheap and this worked fine. None of the fits were really tight.
