primary choices for S&S panhead motor

Thinking of buying one of these. They have one gen/alternator style motor for 70-99 frames. My question is what closed primary style can I use with this motor and a baker 5-speed. I am kind of assuming that the left case is a shovel alternator style. What primary will fit the motor up front and the baker 5-speed in the back. Shovel style or evo style, or will the old tin primary work too? It is going in an 84-99 softail style frame. Or alternatively use a baker 6 into 4 frankentranny. Trying to figure out my options. Any help is appreciated.

Your Answer

You didn't say what motor you are running, however as long as its a 1971 and up single cam Big Twin motor it will bolt into that frame. As to the primary and Baker 5 speed you will have to run Evo style primarys with Evo primary chain or belt drive. You will also have to use a Evo style starter with that primary and trans with jack shaft. Make sure you match all parts as to the year of the primary drive unit as there are 2 different jackshaft assemblies. You are talking about an expensive upgrade. If you need parts e-mail me. I have the best prices in the counrty.

the alt/gen cases take late mode primaries. Any Softail take off primary should work. I like to stay 89 and later as they use the better starter. Yes if you use a softail it will work in a 84-99 softail frame.

Scooterluke I guess i should have been more specific. It is the brand new P-series that S&S unveiled last month. Thanks I know it will fit in that frame it says for 70-99 frames. It's a ground up build so it's not an expensive upgrade per se.

Thanks,
