1960 CH?
Did a electric starter seem to struggle spinning over the engine?
Ive heard some of the hi performance cams are worth tons of $ but makes the starter wear out fast.
Post pictures of this bike and cams please, both the ch and maybe those cams are rare birds...its easy to do,heres a link

Sifton cams. Go here and search on Sifton: http://xlforum.net/forums/s...d.php?t=465866

Also, search the site for Sifton.

As for wearing out the starter, I'm still breathing and walking...

Don't worry, you'll never have any electric starter problems on your 1960 harley, no matter what cams you have.

Who's busting his chops?

I couldn't help him other than tell him he's got Sifton +H cams, but Ga ironhead already did that.

Yeah, A lame attempt at humor. Not aimed at the OP but at a long time forum member. Meant no harm. I guess I'll never be a comedian.

And Jerry, welcome to the forum.
