30-3? saddle springs

I'm looking to replace my original saddle springs on my 31 VF. My poor saddle keeps banging into the rear fender. My springs are 2" wide & 4 3/4 long.
Maybe they have got a bit soft over the years or the springs were never meant for a 190lb rider..lol

Any good sources?
Thanks

Re: Rocker cover bolts alloy heads and iron

My VHA had a hard life.ALL the rocker bolts were 3/8 course and not even the correct length. About 4 years ago when one thread stripped I replaced most of the threads with timeserts. No way are they pulling out now. And recently one head stud on the right side pull out, It was repaired with a Timsert.

valve guide Interference fit ?

I'm about to do both valve guides on my 53 VHA.

The gentleman who is going to do the job would like to know what the Interference fit would be

Also for valve to guide clearance I think the inlet is .0025
Exhaust .004 would this be correct.
Thanks Guys

VCH/HT crank seal on a VHA ?

I'm planning of installing the VCH crank seal 1249-49 and the Shim 1297-49 to my VHA.

The parts books doesn't show where the Shim goes. I'm guessing between the seal & Sprocket

Re: 1953 Tappets

My Oct 52 built VHA has Nil & Nil clearance . I set my rockers snug then back off until they move back & forth freely with NO tappet clearance. I cruise between 55-60 mph with no issues even when it was close to 40c here recently. My old 32 OHC was Nil & Nil .On a hot motor i discovered ...
