Go to a Jap shop and get Three bond 1194 to put your cases together. this shit will seal up a loose pussy.

you are right about the year of the cases. They should be replaced. Bad castings/material.

Have you looked into the harley engine re-build program?

I used Harley and James Gaskets for my rebuild on my 94' Evo 80". The Re-man program from Harley is total bullshit.....at least from my local Harley dealer. It is normally $2500 for the rebuild but but cowboy Harley here in Beaumont, Texas wanted another $1300 to take the engine out and put it back in. Even though the engine was already out of the bike they wanted me to put it back in before they started work on it. The rebuild gasket kit from Harley ran me about $80.

I paid about $3000 for a brand new motor from H-D including shipping, so unless you just want to keep your #'s I don't see a big advantage in the rebuild program. I'd do some research on the case issue if you don't have a porosity problem at this point I'd say you got a okay case, not all had problems.

If you've never used KB pistons,
make sure you get the ring gap correct.
Incorrect ring gap can cause major damage to the engine.

A little insight, .0065 per inch of bore.

Not anything I would care to use.


Basically it's a cast piston with a hypereutectic lid.

Forged is a much better option.

No problems but the cylinders get bored different than other manufacturers. Give the pistons to the borer and ask if he's fitted kb's before. The pistons will come with a leaflet explaining this, give it to the guy doing the boring.

Yes, I have experience with them.
I had a 350 Chev. that I took apart one time that the builder didn't file fit the rings and it lifted the tops off all 8 of them.
Not the only dealings I've had with them. Just one example of negligence.
