Engine Step 1 - Motor Case Assembly

Life's a bitch...   Thank God there's Harleys...

Once the matte black paint on our Harley motor case halves had dried thoroughly, we bolted them together. We gave the original nuts and bolts a thorough cleaning and brushing job, then re-used them to bolt the motor cases together. For this assembly we used a fluid gasket: Loctite Blue Silicone RTV number 6. This silicone based gasket material is very suitable for engines, gearboxes, etc..
