124in. Engine Build (page 1)

The bolts installed very loosely for the intake manifold, and the manifold slipped over them. Lube the seals with oil or antiseize so they wont dry out.



This picture shows installation of the carb and manifold. The manifold is left loosely bolted until the carb mount bolts are in their holes for proper alignment. Then shimmed and left loose as the manifold is pulled into place with its flange mounting bolts. Tighten till the flanges are solidly resting on the head....sequentially. Not one bolt at a time...all are tightened together uniformly.



Picture 63 shows the cover in place and the exhaust gaskets installed in the heads. Done...except for the plumbing which often varies with the installation.



These two links should cover the plumbing for the breathing arrangements, and priming of the oil pump...initial starting...timing...and carb settings.

additional literature and service manuals


www.sscycle.com


and consult your Harley manual.



*This engine build wasn't done to incorporate every facet of assembling this motor...I think if you should attempt it...you know the vast amount of checks and procedures left out for fear of writing a 200 page book that looks like a service manual and the S&S literature combined. I could write pages on pinion shaft/race fitment alone. But maybe it gives you a better understanding of the workings of your motor, and at least a comprehensive naming of some parts for forum questions. So it is what it is...a very narrow view of one particular motor...a 124 S&S. When you price bore gauges for cyl and pinion fitment, and specialty tools shown and not shown...you'll find that it isn't a cost effective set of tools for a single motor.

Awsome article Brad

WOW! I'm about to contribute to CC again. The value of info like this... If everyone on here could pony up just $10.00 or so once a year... You'd all be getting a great value AND BigB would be able to afford all the redundant goodies so we would never go down...
