UL progress

After a few parts hiccups my UL motor is allllmost done. Was over at smokey's late last night and he wanted to put the top end on since I brought over the discontinued new screw down valve covers. We had the tops of the pistons ceramic coated and tr skirts coated in an abratable powder coating so he could put a little more prison to cylinder clearance in the motor (HD says the flathead should have 0.001" which is pretty tight. The coating wears in the cylinder to a snug fit and keeps the motor quiet with 0.003-0.004" clearance. We'll see. Supposed to help reduce wear too.
Gonna try and put the Trans together today.
