Default Update!!!

Hey guys its been a while and life got in the way but I can attest today that the 1979 evo oil pump swapped ironhead is alive I have alot of photos to upload soon but it worked. I have to change the oil again, and hardmount the inline filter. I ended up using an inline trans filter with an internal magnet i also replaced 3 cams just to be safe. She fired right up like she was never down. .

Glad to see your up and running again. NOW lets keep it that way.

I'm in process of tearing mine down now that my dads bikes are done ..lol.. of course he will find something soon I'm sure.
He's 81 and still rides A LOT!!
