So the Vtwin runs great 3/4 throttle and less.  Starts to pop past that.  I checked the valves and they are in spec and moving in and out just fine.  At a little loss there at this time.

A little teaser of things to come.

Fender isn't bolted down yet.  I still need to cut the old bent wheels off so I can put the newer ones on this weekend hopefully.

No comments on the paintjob... this is a 10-20 foot look.  LOL

Taillights and brakes wired up and can be disconnected when I remove the fender pan.

Went ahead and popped the tires off the rims.  Now to tackle cutting them off.  I have other rims to use.

Got the rims off.  Don't think I could have pulled the right rear with a puller. (The one I broke my wheel puller on.)  I could have probably got the left off with some fight.  I did go ahead and cut the wheels off.  I cut a slit then used an air hammer with a chisel to widen the slit and hammer it off.

back left:  just a tiny nick in the axle.  No big deal.

Back right: Again a small nick and some super minor scratching from the air hammer in that same line.  This one was pretty rust welded.
Purple People Eater - Page 2 Img_0627

All cleaned up and ready for new wheels.  I'll put some anti-seize before I put them on.

I should have my wheels on Thursday evening.  I have the fender pan now bolted down and the brake and go pedals back installed as well as the rubber foot mats.

Lots done today.

Photo dump...

As you can see.  Wiring is done.  Body is almost done.  The engine was running MUCH better today.  New wheels and tires installed.

I think it goes about 10ish?  I'll have to GPS it.  I ended up with an intermediate pulley from what came on it and the one I was hoping for.

I just need to make some front lower brackets for the front.  Finish the hood. Need a battery.

Little further.

I definitely need to sort out the lower belt.  Which sux because you have to take out the upper belt to do so.

What I have is too short and does not disengage enough to stop.

I'm frustrated and annoyed.  The VTwin is headed out.  Opposed 18 is going to find its way in.

I've messed with this engine all week and i've gotten nowhere with it.  Guess it needs a full overhaul.  Not ready to pull that trigger on this engine for that yet.

Opposed 18 ready to go in.  Need to pull the vtwin.  I should try to get a new lower belt before I install the opposed.  Only issue I see, other than needing exhaust, is the starter is on the other side of an opposed.  Not sure the cable is long enough.

Thanks...  So, new lower belt installed.  May be an inch too big. We will see.  The engine is installed, wired and spruced up a little.  All I need now is to find the MTD style opposed pipes for exhaust or make my own.  I do plan on backing off this a tiny bit.  I may jump back to The Dirty Rat.  I think I have figured how to incorporate the winch on it without it looking too out of place.

All else fails. I can use some steel pipe since performance isn't an issue with this build.  Just function.
