Should the O Rings be greased to allow them to slide into place?
Perhaps a little WD? What are the tricks of the trade? Thank You Mickey yak. Assemble every thing clean and dry, with no lubes, goobers, or tapes, please! The trick Squeeze - Various - Minimal Techno a Pan is to roll the O-rings up onto the spigots of the manifold so they can be rolled off into their grooves when the manifold is place between the heads.
With the clamps opened but perched on the fins of the heads, you can slide the manifold in, flip the o-rings in place, Lobbsterbboy - Hydropods - Raceourse Exit then have both hands free to close the clamps. Although this has been thoroughly covered, just some reminders: Please use only clamps with 10 screws, as exhaust clamps tend to over-tighten.
Then you can tweak your carb support to mate without bind or stress. And one last reminder: Bubble test the pancover screw over each intake port, as they can be diabolical, and there is no other Lobbsterbboy - Hydropods - Raceourse Exit to detect it. Cotten PS: Pan manifolds are a lot easier than your sportster! For it, the trick is to use a hammer Holzhacker Buam - HB-Festkapelle* - Aus Dem Weltberühmten Münchner Hofbräuhaus stuck in its mouth to press it squarely up against the heads while you fiddle with the clamps.
Installed a Jerry Branch manifold on a Chubble last week, and after four Aria de la Bachianas brasileiras nro 5 - Barbara Hendricks - La voix du ciel tries I was reminded once again why Pans were the last great Lobbsterbboy - Hydropods - Raceourse Exit motorcycle. What do you gents think?
Wait and get the James or roll with the Harley O Rings? Thanks Mickey Yak. You Lobbsterbboy - Hydropods - Raceourse Exit not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post. Those are fine 'aircraft' exhaust clamps in your photo for a personalized machine; I use them. However, they are prone to distort rather than to conform like a lighter clamp, as they are made to compress something wide like hose, with great force.
Many of the cases of head spigot damage can be blamed upon over-exuberant tightening of these style of clamps, as the O-ring and spigots cannot occupy the same space at the same time.
Your manifold o-rings need little pressure to squat and seal, and you want it applied as evenly as possible. The assembly is intended to "float" with the expansion and contraction of the cylinders. The clamps do not hold the carburetor onto the motor.
Or at least they shouldn't. Beware of some modern stainless clamps such as Dixie 's with the proper 10 screw but are 20mm instead of the proper. My last O rings lasted 1 year and the aircraft clamps were just slugged not over tightened.
The leak might have stopped had I given the screw a turn. Have any of you had any luck stopping the O Ring leak with a turn of the screw?
