    Latest round of updates includes links to some good video reviews, recommended maintenance/vehicle checks before driving, motor recommendations, and links to Harley's excellent videos showing tranny and axle disassembly.

    Updated the spur/pinion mesh section based on further testing and monitoring forums/FB. The stock motor position (hole "C") leaves mesh too tight with the stock pinion (11T). Placing the motor at hole "D" with the stock pinion provides much better mesh. Based on bench testing other pinion sizes, the manual's recommended motor positions for other spur/pinion combos also appears to be off (too tight) by one hole, so recommendation is to use one hole further out that recommendation in the manual.


    Also, pinion alignment with the spur gear appears to be off on many of the first production examples. Recommendation is to check alignment and adjust as needed before running the truck.
