Rebuilding a Harley crank

 Is no small task. I got a quote to have it done and baulked at the price. But after all is said and done I'll pay the pros's next time.
 This pinion shaft from ACCEL was within .000 of a thousands. Tits
 The torque specs are crazy high on these things.
 Get your half's true before putting them together.
 After a long battle we got this baby within .0005
 If it wasn't for my partner Mike Pepper's vast experience with 2 stoke cranks we wouldn't have even attempted this feat. The tooling needed alone will set you back half the price of a rebuild.
Sealed up nicely and on to more assembly.
