I run a shovelhead with a S&S Super E, a one inch manifold extension and two Dial-A-Jets. I have also carved the air filter cover so it prolly lets in a good bit more air, especially at speed.
I have the stock main jet in, but I am four sizes down on the intermediate.
I am not getting onto the main at the moment, as I am only a couple hundred miles into a total rebuild, so taking it a little easy.
But on the Intermediate I think the motor is running too hot, which prolly means too lean, and after a few miles I am getting a ticking noise, which I think is prolly a lifter collapsing due to thin (overheated) oil. I know it's not the bottom end, 'cos I have heard that before - shed loads of money
So I have two options. One is to go back up to stock on the intermediate jet and see what happens.
The other is a little more complicated
I picked up a HD CV carb in a yard sale, but the fixing is not the same on the shovel. It would need some kind of adaptor plate and other stuff I guess. No idea what, except it's prolly off an EVO.
Would I be better sorting the S&S, or looking to find a way to fit the CV, if that can even be done ???
The loser will be for sale or swap or a good cause.
Doncha just love it when things get to be fun

Holy Mololey, Batman, I didn't know I was a GOA Life Member, either
Being drunk seems to be better
