Shovelhead project started January 2019,


After many hours I completed the postprocessing of the cases, which basically means modelling them from the ground up using the scan as reference..


I might have been finished sooner if I had not added all the drilled oil channels in the left case, but I figured this was a good time to figure out exatly where and how the oil moves through the engine. I might add some cross-sections showing what I found next time. S&S Oilpump CAD model donated by Satsuma Cycleworks, thanks!


In the meantime I had a set of Shovelheads that I wanted to scan, special thatnks to Ron Touw who blasted off the black coating making them easier to scan. (the 3d scanner cannot "see" black)
