Posted on 12/26/2016 by cfry31Day 1 Teardown Gallery Day 1 tear down progress. Now you can see the profile of the shovelhead! Worn kickstart shaft. Crappy bolt in here too. Will deal with all of this later. Bottom of the battery box. Remember where all the wires go! S&S air cleaner is off, carb sealed to keep out stray crap. Duct-tape repair on the back of the junky gauges. Left side of the engine. Top-right view of the heads and rocker boxes. Now you can see the shovelhead rocker boxes. These are painted and have some blistering… needs to be be fixed! Gauges and tank bib are off. Note vent hose connecting the split halves of the tank. Gauge cluster. Aftermarket, not really liking them. Pretty sure this is a Fat Bob tank. Might look slammed, but covers too much of the rocker boxes for me. Before the tanks are pulled off.
