Jack’s ¼ Scale Knucklehead Bar Build Plans
"PLANS ARE ON THE DOWNLOAD SITE!!"
(Added Master Parts List on E size Drawing)
Up to 8 zip files. over 100 MB (Disregard all files downloaded from this thread.)
Today I finally got to the point where I am satisfied with the model, so I will start uploading all the files needed to build this motor. I have been working on this design for more than a year, and have changed things many times to make me happy. Just remember this motor has not been built yet, so I can give no guarantee’s. I have worked a lot on the valve Trane, and think the lobes on the cam are where they are supposed to be. (May Require tweaking) I will be downloading the files in (9) lots, that will include, Dimensioned Drawings in pdf format, Models in dwf format (Download Free Viewer at autodesk.com), and Video’s of Assemblies. Before you download my files, (PLEASE READ THE TOS STATEMENT AT BOTTOM OF PAGE). Most of the materials Quoted from McMaster-Carr http://www.mcmaster.com , MSC http://mscdirect.com , Stock Drive Products http://www.sdp-si.com/web/html/products.htm Rush Gears, http://www.rushgears.com/ Online Metals http://www.onlinemetals.com/ S/S Machine for Ignition http://www.cncengines.com/ic.html. Some of the gears and hardware have been modified. As I promised I am giving complete plans to members at no charge, but if you like these plans, a small contribution made to the HMEM site would be great, but not necessary. Please if you find any errors or missing dimensions, drop me a PM so I can correct it. If there are any changes, I will post them. Maybe you will be the first to build one, I will be starting a build, when all drawings are finished. First files will be Index files, that will list all drawings in the model, Drawings of the fuel system, and others will follow as I do the annotations on the rest of maybe 100 or more.
“Hope you Enjoy These Plans”

Hi Paul,
Gus having stage fright but if you decide to build this engine,I will follow. For now I am eyeing Brian's new engine with twin cams,rocker arms and push rods.
Will be too many engines in my flat.

Thank you so much for your contribution. You have definitely put much work into this and the first lot of PDFs support that. I cannot wait to see the future installments and do hope you do a build thread with pictures. Thank you again.

Thank you so much for these plans.

Are there still some to be posted? I can't seem to find the plans for the heads.
I found the head plan Index, but not the plans.

I think a couple of the zip files copy each other, like gears 338? or fuel file. I noticed the content was the same. Great job with design and CAD work. I can see you put a lot of effort into it. It's in my build Que. Thank you

I have for the first time went to a Harley dealer and sat in some of them, that was a VERY BAD thing! Now I see what the fuss is all about.

But at least it pushes the desire to build this engine higher up on the list.



If you haven't sat in a Harley be advised that once you do you'll be hooked!

Cheers,
John.

Your plans have been sent to Mike of American Pickers. One of his favorite finds are knucklehead engines.
