    690 vs 817 heads on a dyno!

    63 had more cam duration and lift. Better exhaust manifolds but hp numbers are probably with headers. 63 had single point distributor with vacume advance.

    690 vs 817 heads on a dyno!

    I think the 61 409 and the 62 409 had the same cam. The heads and intake were different. 61 was 360hp. 62 409hp.

    Harley Sportsters

    I started working at the Honda dealer in 1974 about a mile from the fish hatchery. My brother had 73 Sportster and a 74 Superglide. Both bought in Sioux Falls. I think I would have known about a dealership in the area.
