Old School Shovelhead

These old shovelhead motors are just badass.  Their popularity is coming on strong.  Unfortunately, this one had a history of "many different mechanic hands."  Now it's much better . . .
I polished the nasty rocker boxes -  to a factory finish. 
Red rocker nuts from my (Red Rocker Nut Collection)
Hell yes, I'd run it !
PS: I'm doing it's matching -65 transmission too

Sorta makes my 68 look pretty rough. Did you paint the oil pump or just clean the poop out of it?

Painted: H-D Silver High Heat with a -78 part number. Available at your H-D dealer.
They may have changed the part number recently? But, maybe they can cross reference.
