Cleaning and Polishing Tappet Guides
Life's a bitch... Thank God there's Harleys...
With the engine cases and engine covers painted in black and grey, it makes even more sense to emphasize the metal colour of the engine details. For example the tappet guides. These cast aluminium pieces ensure the correct alignment and easy sliding of the tappets. Leon did a great job at cleaning and polishing the tappet guides of our Harley Sportster Ironhead engine.
