  1. Seeing as it is just the gas side, firing order, plugs, wires...?
  2. These are outstanding era photos, thx J61 we will have to get KOO here to explain this stuff, think it’s a TD18 pulling that sleigh train, I know he says they are toothpick trees but that’s a lot of them, quite the developed ice roads also
  3. You don’t seem to be getting an answer and I’m not sure but gonna throw this out there, I believe there were cw and ccw units out there and am wondering if you have the starter of one and the drive or cone of the other and the rotation will not throw it out?

    It’s tank shift, probably a foot clutch I would guess this is HD, early bikes had a flat leather exposed belt, then they had enclosed primary cover like this but with bicycle pedals, then this style so I think the forks look right and I’m guessing between 1915-20 for sure Very cool pic of grandpa
