G'day
First post, I'm located in West Australia, south of Perth.
Have a few bikes, 2007 FXDB (140hp,S&S internals), 2010 FLHX (48's, true duals) and 1965 FL.
Looking for some advice on the Pan, it's a hotrod with S&S P93 engine

Cheers
Stix

Welcome Stix!

Advice probably won't mean much unless you have a specific issue...

Otherwise, its:

"If it works, don't fix it"...
"Starting ease is inversely proportional to the number of spectators"...
"They always run best before they blow up"...
(Stephen Wright's Corollary: "If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.")

Etc.

Or my motto,
"If I can't fix it, it ain't broke."

Lets lower the bar a bit...

Believe it or not, after the local shop broke one case trying to press out the race without support, they went and shattered the other, too!

Actually, Pa,

Its about a hundred miles southeast of me, but local enough for the owner to walk in with the disaster.
Not sure the character is even still in business...
(I pushed the races out easily, much to the owner's chagrin.)

Tragically, some of the Factory big twin manuals show pressing without support around the race or Timken.
And then Folks wonder why the cast-in housings can come loose.

Theoretically, these cases could be saved, but at incredible cost, and probably multiple tries.
