With all the work that went into getting the spotlight, horn, turn signals, headlight, flashers etc... working, it made sense to not work above the front fender. We got the nacelle on and all of the doodads and whistles are in order! Getting the nacelle on was a great feeling. There are more lights and terminals under there than an entire knucklehead!!!
We prevailed and got the speedo cable switched out and the speedo on and mounted. The seat on the bike is an original white one that my dad has had for years, we figured it made sense to use this one for set up and testing before we put the primo saddleshop seat on it before delivery. I ordered the last few pieces that we needed for this bike yesterday and am really looking forward to riding the bike and enjoying it.
Britt is doing really well, and our son is growing every day. We officially made it to the third trimester, and it is pretty neat. It is hard to believe that so much time has flown by and Britt has gotten so big. Here are a couple pics of her from last summer for scale.
And here is Brittney and our son. These last few months have been really exciting and we have learned a lot about babies, parenthood and 65 FLHs.
Here is some really cool early 36 only stuff. The circuit breaker is the early style with the counter bore cam on top, the base that points bolt to is also different. notice how it doesn't flare down in the center like on mid 36 and later timers. The breather is the one that came out of the motor, I am not sure how long they were used. The clip is also an early job, notice how the gap is narrower where the two ends come together. Mid 37 has a wider gap and is made out of a different dimensional material. The difference in the gap had to do with making room for the circuit breaker to coil wire coming out the bottom of the circuit breaker, which didn't happen until mid 37.
