The 'Thor Throat' 1.9/16" fuel injector housing, raw casting made from the same manganese bronze alloy as our triple trees. These injectors have the 4-bolt Linkert flange and use Linkert throttle discs and shafts, and Hilborn nozzles and barrel valves. ...Ready for machining! 💉💉💉 #mechanicalfuelinjection #VARDHALLA

How to fuel inject a 80" Flathead UL part one: Today I finally found some time to get the cam drive done for the Hilborn fuel pump. I started out with drilling out the camshaft using a solid carbide drill. Then I cut down and press-fitted a 3/8" hex bolt into the shaft. Now this turned out alot more time consuming than I hoped because I was sober and hex bolts dosen't have the hexagon in the head lined up with the bolts centerline. So the bolt first had to be centered on a 3/8" bit in the chuck and pushed in place by the tailstock, then turned down to size and pressed in place before finally getting locked in by the tig.
Doing it this way will make the hexagon line up with the camshaft's centerline and as you can see on the dial indicator we're now withit .0003" Next step will be to machine the cam cover but that'll have to wait until next year, because now I have to fix my sobriety. So until then - Have a great New Years everyone! #VARDHALLA #mechanicalfuelinjection #weloveyouLitaFord

As seen inside the VARD INC plant in Pasadena, The Harley-Davidson Motor Company in Milwaukee, among with other high precision industry facilitys and mechanical workshops of the 1930's 1940's and 1950's: The multi spindle drilling machine, a machine designed mainly for jig-making, thread cutting, surfacing and production of high precision components. These machines came from a few different manufacturers and in a few different versions, from 2 up to 6 spindles, some models even came with a foot pedal to reverse the spindle to back out the tap when cutting threads for example. Besides all that it's one of the most beautiful machines ever made if you ask me, and besides that we just FOUND and BOUGHT one of these machines today!!! #harleydavidsonmotorcompany #vard #vardhalla

Here's a few more forks we sent out today. The full patina fork is for a Harley-Davidson in Australia, the shelf wear patina fork is for an Indian Big Chief in California USA, and the standard finish fork is for another Harley Big Twin also in California. Have fun with these forks boys, we sure had alot of fun fabricating them. #VARDHALLA #VARD @s.s.c
