The pinion shaft gauges: I don't see anything with a dial face. What are you measuring? Run out? End play?

And I shudder to think what you have invested in Harley specific tools.

Well course you don't see gauges, they both still in the boxes. I may not give hand tools a lot of TLC, but the expensive special tools get well cared for.

But just to ease your mind I'll reach back into the archives. Pretty sure you've seen these before.

living in a crap little senior mobile home park, I dont have a garage. But I did build the biggest shed/shop that I could get away with. I have tools EVERYWHERE, my shop is just to small.









But my last house was "setup"

Thanks for refreshing my memory.

I know the feeling, I worked out of a 10x12 shed and a asphalt floored car port for a lot of years before I had the scratch to build the shop at my last house. Put 6 or 7 hours in at work then come home and put 6 or 7 more in on the car port.

I love your sign "no stupid people". And those stainless steel tool boxes give me a "stiffy". So I guess this is tool porn.😀

Mine's only 12X12. So I can relate.

Lets do electrical.

Some test meters and circuit probes

266316


And some tools to work on the harnesses and connectors with.

266317


Because connectors and terminals always break after parts has closed till Tuesday. And because asshat's wire stuff up with pinch locks, some repair parts.

266318


Some battery charge/test stuff 500amp load tester, 30 amp charger and a almost 40 year old 50 amp load tester.

266319


Here's something that will often save some time with a diagnosis. Relays with a switch on them. they turn on and off with the switch, and eliminate the control circuit from the ecm.

266320


Lab scope, bore scope and Harley fuel pressure tester. Bluetooth interface for a pre Rushmore Thundermax

266321


I used to have an old worn out Sun Machine with a single channel scope in it. Dumpster trawl. Pretty much the only thing that still worked was the scope. But it was way to big to bring to this shop. So I get this little thing that turns a laptop into a 8 channel scope. Still not really proficient with it, but given some trial and error, I can check about any electrical output on a Harley.

Here's some old school stuff.

Dwell meter, Mag timing box, and an analog adjustable timing light. the timing light I use maybe once a year. The other stuff is pretty much obsolete.

266323


The is a breakout box for a gen 4 Ford ecm. This is how we accessed the Ford ecms back in the 90's. Ford ecm's had soldered in proms, so you couldn't just swap out the chip.

Wish I could find one of these for late Harley's.

266326


And here's a 90's scan tool beside a 2010's scan tool. The old one is four times the size and won't do half the tasks.

Man that shop is huge, whish I had that much space here.
Thanks
It's the garage that came with the house.It was the main reason we bought this place.
I was an old bachelor 5 yrs.ago and we needed to find a place that would work for the both of us.
I gave up a crappy old starter home with a nice 42x60 Morton building and she gave up a very nice house with a small yard.

We're in the boonies which helps with house prices and taxes.I won't miss my commute to work when I'm done.

Ya I gave up the little starter house and big shop when we moved here. But it cut my wife's commute from 2 1/2 hours down to 60 min. 30 minutes now that the job moved out of down town Bmore. They wont say it publicly, but the riots were the last straw for them having an office in the city of Bmore.

This is the nice house on a postage stamp lot thing. 25 minutes to manicure the lawn here, at the old house it was about 1/2 a day to do it 1/2 right.

Nice. Those wood handles are great to hammer on when they aren't yours.
My shop teacher in jr. high always told us if your going to use a screwdriver as a punch or chisel always place your thumb between the screwdriver and the hammer.
