    Hs40 Build

    I'm sure the reason the OP wants to cut the camshaft snout off is because he has the good pre 1970 MCR camshaft to work with like seen below on the right: Dave (OP) If the lobes look good and the lifters show that they were rotating through the years and not wiping out the lobe I'd give it a...

    just finished !

    That came out Great!!! I love the color! Just an FYI thuough, that frame was never sold as a duck or through Bird, it was exclusively Sears sold and labeled and its the later/last one ones made (they did not call them Drovers, but everyone calls them that) up 72/73 timeframe. The engine is the...

    5hp mild build...... performance cam?

    I have to start planning the parts for a build. I need to try to build a 5hp, That runs strong and will not be too troubled by running higher rpms for probably a little more sustained than normal, and externally look like a stock 1967 4hp :oops: So that limits me on the carb to the old pull...

    Wheel id

    Yes they are what powerdynes used, The PD's used 1/2 axles and headtubes. I had a set on this junker I bought and cut up The brake is the one on the top for most bikes, the assemblies were made by "Rong Shin" The sprocket might be stamped. They use the same brake shoes as a honda Z50/QA50...

    Bird Thunderbird Model and Dimensions

    This is the Nighthawk version circa 1981 spec sheet. Its just a little more dressed up version, but the framework is still the same (bars are taller than the T-birds) The frame never really changed from the beginning which was the middle 1970's up to later 1980's and Manco took it over. They...

    Ignition wiper service

    I put some rubber cushion on the jaw tops of my large shop vice, open it enough to clear the plate and set the sides of the coil bottom on top and tap the center prong of the plate with a wooden dowel just small enough to fit through the hole in the coil to drive the crusty ones through...

    Efenel mini history

    One thing that comes to my mind From when I did some research awhile back was a court case in the mid 70's that involved a tractor trailer load of them being stolen just on the outskirts of the warehouse. It was more something to do with interstate transport end of it, not really the bikes...

    Ignition wiper service

    Yea I have put wire in the tec coils, I will actually have to do some this time as most of these mags were the extras that I have been robbing parts off of here and there. I dont know what glue they used but some of them look like they splooched it right on the end of the wire and pushed it in...

    Help finding my first bike

    I probably should have worded that differently, Grants was a big seller of the Fox made bikes, that particular model though?? Probably not a whole lot of them sold. I've only seen that particular one in grants advertising during 1973 and it was less than some of the other models throughout the...

    Ignition wiper service

    I ran out of cleaned stator/magneto's to work with and have to go through some to get ready for service so I did a quick and terribly done video of how I have been servicing the wiper felts. I didnt put it in the video cause I was trying to keep it short, and doing it with a camera in one hand...
