Chrome Engine Kit for Twin Cam 88B-Equipped Softail® Models 16318-01A

TWO Questions......

Has anybody install this kit and kept the parts list?

Is this the best kept price secret of H-D or am I missing something here?

This kit is listed as $699.95 and contains these 9 items:

rocker housings
rocker covers
tappet cover
dipstick
transmission top cover
transmission side cover
outer primary
derby cover
cam cover
and all necessary gaskets

Now, I don't know the exact part number of each included item, but just putting together the basic chrome items listed below with part numbers, I get a total of $968.75 without any gaskets.

Individually these items are $647.79 at Zanotti and the complete kit is $574.85

17573-99 - rocker housings - $100.00
17572-99 - rocker covers - $92.00
17964-99 - tappet cover - $26.90
62345-00 - dipstick - $12.95
34541-00 - transmission top cover - $111.00
37105-99 - transmission side cover - $89.90
60543-99B - outer primary - $331.00
60668-99 - derby cover - $60.00
25369-01A - cam cover - $145.00

Thanks, John :hmmm:

Snowman, I put this kit on my fxst a couple of months ago. I got mine off of ebay through Roeder Harley Davidson in Ohio for $580. I agree it may sound to good to be true but I received all Harley parts including gaskets. Here is a link to some pics.

Hawg Head, how long did this take you to complete? Was it a challenging job or pretty straight forward? I was thinking about it and I would call my self pretty handy, but I'm no mechanic.

Thanks,

Part-Time

It took me about 16 hours, but I took my time and double checked everything. If you are going to do it yourself, it's a must to have the service manual. I would not attempt it without it. Get the manual, thoroughly read the sections that deal with the parts you are going to replace before starting so there won't be any surprises and you should not have any problems.

THANKS for the information on the chrome kit; I must have missed your reply :dunno:

Very good looking motorcycle you have there. I was thinking of getting this kit and if or when I get around to doing a 95" or 98" build, have the mechanic use the chrome parts then.

:cheers: John

PS - Thanks for the tip on Roeder but just had a quick look on eBay, they are marked as away right now, not many items listed, plus they probably don't ship overseas. I think ZANOTTI will be my best bet.
