    With the first of May "barreling" down on me we've made some progress. The Frame is Powder coated, the engine parts are machined, heads assembled, and spindle trailing arms have been corrected. The Twin will finally have matching heads, 461 castings with 2.02/1.60 valves, engines have been upgraded to flat top pistons and intake manifolds will be modified to hold water. Handling was ill at times, I knew I made a mistake with the trailing arms so I made the changes I felt necessary to improve the Akerman.......time will tell! headsc.jpg headsd.jpg headse.jpg headsg.jpg frame pc.jpg spindles orig.jpg spindles new.jpg spindles newc.jpg

    Naa, the cams are 450 lift hydraulics (reground stock cores from Clay Smith), if I ever do any cam changes I'll address them.
