It's an S&S evo motor. Same mounting and carb options as any other Evo.

Actually it's not. The first Indians had 88ci SnS motors in them but toward the end Indian made their own. There are some issues with the new motor and a couple places have taken to fixing them. I think that they might have been in on the origianl 'power plus' design but am not sure.

Here is one of the places.

i thought is was made by revtech and built around their 4x4 design 100" motors. could be wrong tho. I have heard mixed reviews bout the revtechs. But my 100" was killer and never let me down. I do like s&s products better.

Early indians had the S&S and the later ones had the PP100 "bottlecap" motor that was made by the indian company. The PP100 had a number of problems and there were a couple of recalls and some failures due to the design flaws. There is a company, Bkackhawk Motorworks that has a fix for all of the issues and makes a good motor out of the PP100. I would only consider a PP100 that Blackhawk had done the upgrades on.

The Indian PowerPlus 100" is a proprietary motor that was:

Designed by Indian in conjunction with S&S

Built from largely S&S manufactured parts

Assembled by Indian through Powersports Assemblers.

Much of the high failure rate is due to the assembly by Powersports Assemblers

Exactly. When Indian went out of business the 2nd time and into receivership, J&P Cycles up in Anamosa, Iowa bought out the remaining stock of the PP100 motors. The listed them on their website in complete configurations, and separate cases, jugs, and heads. The heads were specifically S&S proprietary and required S&S replacement parts, as did the lower ends, w/ the jugs fitting whatever S&S lower end they based the PP100 on. I almost bought a set of cases and heads to begin a motor down the line until I heard some of the stories and decided against it... despite S&S's name being attached to it. At any rate, they sold out w/in a few weeks because there were so many people that wanted them due to the unique round design of the heads/cylinders in comparison to the stock "square" look of the Evo. The look is very distinctive and I've always liked it. It wasn't until later that I learned about the assemblers being the problem. If I could get a set of the jugs and bare heads, I'd take them now and build them to suit me w/ all S&S stuff w/ S&S lower cases.

I think the design is pretty good

And, obviously, S&S has the parts manufacturing pretty much under control

The weak link was the assembly, and the flywheels (god only knows why they didb't have S&S manufacture the flywheels too)

Properly reassembled with good seals and gaskets, I think the PP100 motors have worked out very well

In regards to the Powerplus
Could anyone tell me the cylinder length for the 100" (3.875 / 3 7/8 bore)
Also the deck height of the PP100 engine cases, Are they the same as Std EVO

Thanks
