Almost step by step install of a 117 inch motor

I will show pictures of a some what of a step by step install of a 117" It is a mild build. 10.25 comp. Nothing super high horse power for now. It might get a blower on in but thats a maybe so I will set it up for him.
This a rebuild that we are doing for are customer. We will even do the brake in and dyno tuning in house with pictures.
Some of the parts we are using
Axtell 117"
Dragos stage 3 heads. 305 cfm 28"
Feuling 630 cam which I have never used yet.
Thundermax autune.
etc.,.,.,.,.,.,
Stay tuned
 
dragos shop.jpgHere you can see the pistons are installe look at the rear piston make sure the notch is facing the front so it does not hit the rod or piston, This notch does mess with the weight so we take some weight of the font one to help wil balance.
We get this question all the time what does one of your shops look like and what do you look like the face behind the keyboard and phone and builds.. These pictures were taken by my wife last Sunday. This is just 1 half of the shop in Machesney Park Il. You can see one half of the shop the 4 lifts have all baggers on them. The Machesney park shop has the dyno jet dyno there. This is not are machine shop...

Stay tuned more pictures to come of this 117 rebuild.....

I honestly have ZERO expierence with the inside of an Engine so hopefully the Service Manual is fool proof!

What I am worried about is not knowing the "tricks of the trade" to ensure I put my motor back together properly.
 
Your motor kit is almost done. Your heads are 3rd in line to get in the cnc machine. Just very busy. But will will help you 100% when you install. But buy a service book 60$ from HD

You took it apart didn't you? LOL

These things are scary easy, but I was intimidated the first time I dove in as well. Make sure everything is clean. Parts, hands, work area, everything. Wash the cylinders really good. Use assembly lube. Follow the torque sequence where applicable, especially is you are using MLS head gaskets. They have their own torque procedure which will differ from what is in the SM. Take your time and it will fire off no problem.

good luck with 200 horse with a jims crank. i have one on the bench that's been 10. flat in a softail. about 175 hp, couldn't keep that pos together, splines on the primary side are beat to sh!t. almost looks like the pinion is too soft or something. we run an s&s now, 2 seasons with countless passes and no splitting the cases.

this is a 4.25 bore 124, runs amra hot street. steve lacy runnered up in september on it.
 
We have built many here with the Jims Cranks with good succsses But we only use the fly wheels. But we do a different set up. We a have used many S&S cranks also. But we go through them 100%
And I can say we broke every type of crank manufactuer on the planet also. From Jims to R&R to S&S to Darkhorse,Rev Perf and ours. I cant think of anymore(LOL). Right we a have about 8 131 that we did with blowers all make from 192/202 and the latest 224hp 194 tq. so far so good. But the only thing Jims in these motors are the cases we have are own setup and recore the heads different rings and our own cams.Rods etc.,
Give us a call we can shoot the Sh******** some time..... Thats great numbers for a N/A motor......
We just did a bottom end on a 08 rocker softail with are threshold 107 inch blower motor and it is using a S&S we hope to see it make 195/200 in the spring. We built everything on it but customer is putting it together. Will tune for him. We removed all the extra BS in the crank.

Keep the pictures coming drago.
I have done only 2 motors now, both 103, nothing like this
so it is always good to learn and watch. Thanks.
1 B motor and 1 A motor both mine.
 
This bike is an 06 using 04 heads. I had HPI make custom flanges for me. This has a Zippers 54mm throttle body for 06 /07 heads and they told me it will not work period. Well there wrong when I re did the heads we opened up intake port and HPI did a great job for gave them mesurements they made them perfect.....
Here you can see the 1 pic of th intake seal that was on there it did not match intake was leaking with the Thundermax and auto tune. Ran it lean smoked motor. Its a too bad the other shop that built this motor did not see the customer bought 04 heads and they installed them on 06 bike. Intakes dont line up.
Just want to show people what can happen to a bike that runs lean... lock up motor etc., Dont try this at home. lol
One seal is the old one and on is new. can you guess???
