THEWILDONE is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Flathead or BTSV Harley

Some of you may know that I am (slowly) building up a '37 UL BTSV or big twin side valve. I've always referred to it as a flathead. Probably has a lot to do with what I have heard, and, all the flathead Fords I've been around. Probably an unofficial name either way.



Anyways, I found this great article https://dicklinn.webs.com/ where the process of retrofitting and ironhead XL oil pump into a flathead is detailed..... I'm most of the way through this process and I'm down to the last portion of the page regarding jets....

Does anyone know who this gentleman is, and where he might be contacted? Some of the pics are missing which definitely adds a little challenge.

well, i ran a whois search and it is privatized, but the domain is still active till 2021.
the site was put up in 1995 so the article could be very old.

he is a member of this group,
http://www.caimag.com/forum/showthre...-UL&styleid=25

perhaps if you joined, he would answer, couple of link with his picture.

Wow, thanks. I appreciate that.

I see where his website was linked but it doesn't look like he posted in that thread.

I'll join up and see!
