So, spending a few quality minutes with the Ronnie's online parts fiche... seems that the original spacer in my bike is H-D part 33344-94; the corresponding part for a '91-2 is p/n 33334-85

The page on PBI's site for the sprocket I got recommended a 33334-79 spacer (which is what I ordered). Mr. Google tells me this is for an '83 big twin. Suspect this may be part of the issue... so, another Dennis Kirk order placed. Couple pairs of plugs, couple oil filters, some DOT5 (the local parts store only had a couple cans - and DANG! that stuff is dear, and some other sundries.

I need to start a business, so I can write all this junk off!

Got the rear tire mounted today; ended up spending much of the day over at a friend's house dealing with some plumbing issues.

The Fedex site has shown my chain sitting in Memphis for the last week. Now, Dennis Kirk has sent my order with that spacer by Fedex... wonder when I'll see that .

But progress is progress, and at least one of the sprockets is on

Spacer and the seal changed in 94 I think? I can’t remember, same id, different od, as well as the corresponding seal. I’m not sure on depth, I had to order a new new seal for my 03, but used a bt/old style Xl spacer I had for the chain drive.

Dennis Kirk is usually pretty quick, but I live 3 hours from them so I would imagine it depends on where you are located. I order a lot of gaskets ect from dk, if it’s in stock and I order before 10 am I get it the next day, if not I can order as late as 7pm and it’s always the day after. I’m very lucky, I don’t bother ordering locally from places because of this convenience for gaskets, seals and what not.

Looks like she’s coming together!

Yeah, man, DK moves the stuff out quick for sure. I'm in Arkansas, and have got my care packages in a couple days. Well pleased.

Remember when we were kids, and we'd look forwards to getting the toy in the bottom of the cereal box. Well, they send stickers with parts for adults...



Bike's starting to look like herself again...



Punch list is getting shorter...



Bike sure is a bunch lower, now. I had to dent the muffler for the axle bolt @ the regular ride height...





Sprocket spacer showed up; seems to line the front sprocket with the rear. But, need another seal. Thought I'd ordered one for a '91-2; will have to dig out my receipt and try again. EDIT: looked at my receipt - ordered a seal for the belt drive setup.

*shakes head*

Looks like I'm gonna just call the stealership on Monday

Also, have to see about a chain. Bought one offa eBay, right before the freeze. FedEx tracking showed it sitting in Memphis for 10 days, now their website has no record of the tracking #. Ugh.

Well, the chain I bought off eBay was stuck in a FedEx warehouse in Memphis, then the tracking number quit working. So, I went and bought another one, since I had no idea when the first would arrive.

Well, as luck would have it, the second one is showing as being in a FedEx warehouse in Memphis right now, and the first one was sitting on the porch when I got home.

Box has seen better days, but, the chain looks pretty good. Gonna' have a spare, which doesn't hurt my feelings too much.

For tonight, it's living room decor.



Picked up a '91 XL oil seal for the spacer for the output shaft - will see how that works.

I’m curious what the tensile strength is on that chain. I’m not saying anything is wrong or negative with it, but a quick google search shows it as a 30 dollar chain. I’m not saying that won’t work.

Ack!

Well, I thought the DID chain was supposed to be a good brand, and what I was missing here was a pretty, gold anti-corrosion coating.

Well, fuuu... er, dang it - the other one just showed up.



Curious how often chains break at the 80-100 HP level if not already worn the heck out, misadjusted, or otherwise improperly installed/maintained...

Will keep an eye on them, and promptly let them adorn the round file when worn
