This first picture shows the cams in and correctly timed:
This next picture shows the new pushrods, and also illustrates a problem. I had too little clearance even with the adjusters bottomed. I called a fellow Indian afficionado who has already saved my bacon once! He asked me if I had the "thick" or the "thin" lock nuts...
Turns out I had the thick ones:
So Duff saved me by sending a set of four thin lock nuts, as shown below. Between these, and some home made .025" cylinder base gaskets, I got the clearance I needed.
I hope to be able to install the rings, and button up the cylinders this weekend. Stay tuned for further developments!!
