Ok - I will try this _i'm out of town but will be back next week. Thank you for your helpHi Gibsonsmu, Don't remove primary cover. Just remove plug in center for adjuster. Put end of Verner on cover at side of hole. Push depth stem to nut. Record, Has assistant pull lever, or bungi cord it tight to grip. Measure same way. Subtract difference. That is lift.
I have no experience with Amsoil V-twin. I have lots of experience with Mobil V-twin 20-50 . I can assure you Mobil1 Vtwin will not stick old cork, new cork or any of the modern friction materials I've seen. Even after several months. Mobil1 Vtwin has never caused slip either.
But what's the lift first? Need to be sure that's good before moving on.
