    That does not sound good there must be something somewhere falling to pieces
    Just hope that the dealer does something about it

    Thanks Joy, I collected the bits of brass to show them so they cannot say it is plastic from the tensioner, I may even throw the cut open oil filter on the counter HAAAAAA

    Sounds like the oil pump / crank bushing in the cam plate. Keep us informed.

    Yellow metal appears to me to be rare in the Twin-Cam engine. Any idea where the damage is happening? The only thing I can think of is a bushing going bust, but I don't know enough about these power plants to place it.

    Good luck,

    No trike for you yet, unless it is for the redhead!
