    LOL I think where I became confused was when I started looking at the James catalog comparing it to the St. Paul HD online catalog. Wasn't clear if there was a variation between years of the engines...

    It sounds like a rotation will do it, I will see. I'm going in to replace all of the top end gaskets and seals, including the PCV grommet and the rocker box seal. I was also thinking about...

    Thanks all. The leak has created quite a mess, so I really need to "get in there" in order to clean it up. If the rear cylinder can be fully exposed through rotation then I'm probably fine, but I...

    Yes, I was planning to remove the front wheel and completely expose the top of the rear cylinder for unfettered access to it, but now planning to do both cylinders at the same time.

    What's the opinion on using the crane to lift the frame up and away from the engine while it's supported and still attached to the rear mount (so it can rotate)?

    Rocker box gasket service

    After my latest round of full throttle tuning, my rear rocker box (most likely just the PCV grommet) is leaking enough for oil to make its way down to the primary cover. So I bought the gaskets and...

    So this is really sad, but it's taken me until now (late 2021) to tune the rear cylinder on my '08 XB12Ss. It's a fairly simple procedure of locking out the AFVs and EGO correction, but installation...

    I reckon there's a press-fit tube in the head right now - the mechanic just used a short piece of the original hose assembly and plugged it with a bolt and a crimp-on clamp to attempt to seal it.

    So everything appears to be good, but clearly, the work done to plug the pressurized oil line at the rear cylinder head is not sealing very well. I've got some oil seepage onto the rear header and...

    The engine has only 25K on it and I put on the last 6K. I think the better running condition is actually from the spark plug replacement.
