Me and "the 'ol man . . "




Working on motors next to your dad (mine is Big Noot), isn't always real glorious.  But, you can learn a thing or two if you pay attention.  I always use those band-type ring compressors.  You can struggle a bit with them - gettin' the thing on straight, loosening the bolt, tightening, jockey'n with the thing.  I've always noticed these cast-ring-type compressors in the drawer with all the Harley tools.  They work slick.  They are all tapered and smooth inside - slip right on - less apt to break a ring.  Slide right off the bottom.  Trick man !  He's even got one stashed for 3 5/8" big bore pistons.  Huh, what do you know ?????

Nice post Li'l Noot, wished I'd paid attention when I had the chance.
