Well look at this.  The Blackhawk is on a lift.  What could it mean?    :)

She's finally getting all the love and finishing touches I could never afford to do.  Engine is coming apart and getting the case halves O-ring mod, all new gaskets and seals, new primary chain and timing chain, new stator and reg/rec, new tires and tubes, new valve springs.  And that should pretty much do her up good.  May also be installing a Smith's clone GPS speedometer.

Who knows?  Maybe it can also get a proper primary cover that holds oil so the primary chain and clutch can actually get lubricated?

Or a belt drive.  Who knows what's in store?!

Ordered up some K70's yesterday.  Going to be placing a large HC order on Sunday.  Decided to replace the timing and magneto chains too while I'm in there.

Is there any other odd ball parts that I should replace while I have the engine split and torn apart?  Anything oil pump wise? I know the worm gears aren't the best.

Maybe consider modifying you oil pump spindle to fit a securing bolt, like on the interceptors. These things have a tendency to groove into the front pump shield/lid and break.

This the first I've heard of the 700s having oil pump issues.  Only mod I've ever heard of is installing a return pump on the feed side to increase oil volume.

So looks like the Interceptor and Connie have the same oil pump spindle.  And I see the "Securing Screw" in the Interceptor diagram.  How and where do you add that screw to the Connie motor?

I don't know if it's a common issue, but on my Chief the spindle was broken and on at least all three return pump covers I have there were marks of the spindle rubbing against them (see attached image. Also I don't think they would have added that screw for nothing, so I modified that on my Chief, just in case:

Received my Hitchcock's order yesterday.  I knew it was my order as soon as I saw the mailman walking towards the shop with it.  How did I know?  Because it looked like someone put the box thru a garbage disposal and taped it back together!  Luckily it appears nothing was damaged.

I was EXTREMELY stoked upon unboxing the alternator adapter ring.  No more cast pot metal!  They actually machined it out of aluminum!  Yay!  It's the 4th one I've had to order as every single one before broke into several pieces upon disassembly for any reason.  So, so happy to see machine marks instead of casting marks.

I was originally going to rejet and ride my dirt bike today, but maybe I'll start taking the Blackhawk apart.

Well, I got the engine almost removed.  I couldn't separate the engine and trans because my 2 1/8" crank nut socket is in my toolbox in the livingroom.  But, I'll go into work early and try to get things separated and hopefully pulled out.  Then it's on to separating the case halves.  The machine shop next door will be marching the oil passages for the o-ring mod.  Then to see if I can actually put one of these motors ALL the way back together.  Haha.  So far, things have been coming apart smoothly.
