Ted, welcome to the forum family from a swamp in Michigan. Ironically my 2000 is a 1460.

Hello Paul, is your 2000 an S&S superstock motor, I've had 10months of headaches rebuilding mine, parts are scarce, took 4 months to get pistons from S&S, I've fitted a truett and Osborne crank in mine now, just in final heat temping stage then run her in, hoping she's a Japanese beater haha

Ted, yep an S&S 89” kit from back in 2006. Probably around 60,000 on the kit, a real pleasing ride but can be hard on head gaskets, ha, ha!
