    Looks the same as my evo softail neck 82mm from the bottom to the top of the section where the speedo cables goes through if that helps any.

    Thank you for the compliment, but I do not do anything extraordinary.
    I try to go to the end.
    I will make inquiries to the sites

    A French friend gave me far from a panhead frame, we are not far from the measurement of Independent 84.

    Here, the distance that I seek to know is more difficult. part of the model is between 1949-1951. If you know anyone who can give me information.

    it is better if you measure between tank mounts , as the measurment from the centre of speedometer cable hole is not as important..
    put the correct diameter dowel or pipe in the speedo hole as pictured& drop the dash casting over it, measure your tank mount points(on the tanks you are going to use)
    front to rear that will tell you where to weld the rear mount,and dont worry to much about the height of the cast dash mount as the speedometer & ignition switch can be shimmed to the correct height to mount the dash cover corrctly....

    Thank you for the explanations.
    First I would weld the speedometer mount and drill and then weld the two back legs.
    At home I have 2 halves tank.

    I launched the project for 2 reasons:
    The first:
    Find vintage pieces for the set.
    Then use the aftermarket catalogs for new internal parts and safety.
    I do not want to have such an engine failure at the first start .
    The second :
    With the Internet I have information about the specifics such as the frame.

    For me it's too much honor, it makes me uncomfortable because guys like me there are probably a lot.
    I do what can.

    I found so far thanks to the bushing that I bought on the net.
    My project is progressing slowly.

    There is no end play for the moment.

    I do not forget you but the time has passed so quickly, my project does not move very fast but it's like that.
    After finding the tool, I was able to finish tightening,I finally finished my crankshaft.

    Panhead51 good to see your still at it.
    after you used the brace to hold flywheels, did you check turning the flywheels with a dial gauge on each side where crank rides in its case bearings to see if its true?
    they use that tool but they also use a mallet & a tappered head ( like a chisel . to get them close to perfect true as they can. I like the old 74 cubic inch the heavy flywheels & shorter stroke they felt nicer to ride than the latter 80 cubic inch ( not faster just they pulled low rev's better ) keep at it, Panheads are the best looking HD motor!!

    I answer you with a little delay, Hervé did what was necessary for the crankshaft to run smoothly.
