    That's as far as I've got up to now. I still need to remove the inner cam bearings, then it should be ready to start the rebuild.

    Have you checked the Crank runout yet? 'cos if you haven't it will be tricky with the barrels off and the con. rods wobbling about!

    It's easier - hold the rod ends and rotate the crankshaft ...

    Yes it was checked earlier, before stripping the engine. The run out was .0018.

    Oh yes I didn't think of that.

    I started the assembly with new inner cam bearings.

    Followed by new O rings, not forgetting cleaning out the gauze filter hidden behind the top O ring on the left hand side of the cam chest. then the S&S TC3 oil pump.

    Re: 2000 FXSTS Engine build.

    The cam plate caused me a bit of a headache. I had bought an S&S 1999 to 2006 TC3 camplate. I assembled it as per the instructions and various videos on you tube.

    New 6004 C3 bearings, Cam chain tensioner oil holes block off kit. and the Crane 296 cams with new gears fitted.

    Copious amounts of assembly lube, then inserted into the cam chest. I started to loosely put the oil pump bolts in then hit a problem.

    Number two hole did not line up.... Bugger...

    I was always taught that "Assumption is the mother of all ferk ups". I had wrongly assumed that an S&S TC3 oil pump for a 1999 - 06 twin cam would be compatible with an S&S TC3 cam plate for a 1999 -06 twin cam. My model and year of bike was listed for both Items. It took some research then I found this.

    The second last line in the pic says it all. Time for a think on what to do next.

    Re: 2000 FXSTS Engine build.

    I had a word with me owld mate Geoff and we congitated over different solutions. He then said, why don't you put my old plate in, the one he used in his original build. It was a standard twin cam plate but he had fitted a Baisley "Hi-Performance" oil spring. OK, back on track. I dismantled the S&S plate and rebuilt the bearings and cams in Geoff's (now my) plate.

    I lubed it up and slotted it in. I then torqued up the cam plate bolts ready for centering the oil pump.

    I had at first put the original spacer on the front side of the rear cam in place but then realised that the Cam gear took up that space.

    I had a problem with the barrels moving when trying to centre the oil pump using the back wheel to turn the engine over as I tightened the bolts. My solution (Pinched off the net) was to lightly bolt the barrels down using the head bolts and some plastic tube spacers I had left over from a Fish tank build.

    The timing marks do line up, I've just been turning it over by hand so they look out of place. That's all I've got done up to now. I've still got to insert the lifters fit a new gasket and button it up. I can then move onto the heads.
