Shovelhead stripped to the cases

I have to get the engine out of the frame. This guard has to go. A nut up front...

Two nuts behind the clutch basket.

Undo the lockwashers.

Pull the adjustment lock nut.

Put a washer on behind the lock nut.

Take off the stud nuts and you can put the "sandwich" out of the way.

Hold the connecting rod and hit the front hub nut with the impact.

Piece of cake.

With the belt, front pulley, clutch basket off, the guard comes right off.

Unplug the regulator.

Take out the motor mount bolts.

The nose cone needs to come off, because I don't want to cut and/or reroute the wires for the ignition.

I didn't pictures, so you if want details look here. I should have put a pan under it though.

Pinch these off and take them off.

The breather piece wouldn't need to come off to get the engine out of the frame, but I know it won't fit in my engine stand though.

Take off the oil breather line, too.

Get out all the motor mount bolts and the engine is out and into the stand. I don't remember it being so heavy last time.

On to the bench.

Dang! I should have dropped the trap drop while it was in the frame and not the stand.

Tappets come out.

Cam out and bagged.

Breather gear.

More crap in the breather gear.

Oil pump comes off. Again more details here.

Oil pump looks clean.

My wife's a trooper. She pulled the trap door bolts, while I held the crankcase half out of the stand and over the edge of the bench. Thanks, baby! I love you.

Alternator cover comes off.

Pull off the rotor. Remember it's a big maget.

Uncrimp the lock tabs and take out the four screws.

Take out the tiny set screw and don't loose it.

Stator out. I believe that's everything off and splitting cases will be next.
