    Restoring/updating an 1961 DuoGlide. Half 61, but also already converted to 65 electrics. Had a belt-drive primary, but converting back to chain. My question: is there a gasket between motor & chaincase? Is mainshaft bearing a sealed affair or bearing & oil seal? Repair & parts books in my collection leave alot to be desired

    Bearing and oil seal I'm pretty sure. A buddy of mine is restoring a 61 FL that was burnt, all his parts are there and can be restored all but few parts any way. Have fun with your project and keep us updated.
