Bonneville Scout valve lifts.
Sport Scouts in Bonneville guise ran the regular inlet lifts with special exhaust lifts (unlike the Bonneville Chief, where both were special). There is still a fair supply of used Sport Scout/741 inlet lifts, but the Bonneville exhausts are getting hard to find. Matt Willkinson in Maryland is now making a limited production run of them. No price yet, but they should be ready in October. The lifts will be available through the VI Buyers' Club.
New Clutch for Chief & Scout.
Things in the Indian world are interconnected in the strangest ways... You may have noticed that the second part of Rob Olsens article on babbitt bearings, which was supposed to have appeared this month has been replaced with an article on the subject by Charles Qua. Charles is well known for his innovative and effective clutch, of course, in addition to being an authority on babbitt bearings and other "Four" matters, and it just so happens that the reason for Rob's article being postponed until next month is that he and Duff are working on.... A clutch!
The clutch has already proven itself with Hendersons and Indian Fours, and is now being adapted for the Indian twins. A prototype will be ready any day and Rob informs the VI that the main comment on the clutch in its Henderson versions is: "It works like a dream!".
