In this second part of his fifth volume on Harley-Davidsons motorcycles, Donny Petersen, who studied privately with Harley-Davidson engineers, shares practical knowledge and streetwise tips on the Shovelhead motorcycle. Donny presents what Harley-Davidson has to say through the myriad of service bulletins back in the day in everyday language. He also uses his extensive practical experience to constructively critique the official line, offers additional hard-earned information, and then shares what he does to his own bikes. He provides • solutions to fix the Shovelhead’s teething problems; • Harley’s responses to ongoing problematic aspects of vibration, as well as the aftermarket’s cures; • tips on working with the Shovelhead’s carburetors and five ignitions; starter and charging systems, electrical switches, circuit breakers, and relays; and • best practices for lubrication, as well as the progression of front forks and shocks, brakes, wheels, and tires. Written in straightforward language, this guide offers step-by-step instructions to help all levels of enthusiasts, from novices to expert mechanics. In his usual forthright manner, Donny makes technical issues understandable, interspersing explanations with entertaining stories about the lifestyle that comes with being a Harley rider.

Donny is the Winner of the 2012 International Book Awards. Donny Petersen has been educating motorcycle enthusiasts about Harley-Davidson bikes for years. Now, he has combined all his knowledge into a twelve-volume series masterpiece and this third book is one that every rider will treasure. Petersen, who has studied privately with Harley-Davidson engineers and has spent thirty-six years working on motorcycles, is sharing all of his secrets! As the founder of Toronto’s Heavy Duty Cycles in 1974, North America’s premier motorcycle shop, the dean of motorcycle technology teaches about the theory, design, and mechanical aspects of Harleys. In this third volume, discover: 1. How to identify the Evolution models. 2. Why the Evolution models are better. 3. Everything you need to know about engines. 4. Troubleshooting every facet of the Evolution. And so much more! The Harley-Davidson Evolution The Japanese had more than quality. Their arsenal included acceleration and speed combining with good braking and handling. They could design, tool-up and build a new motorcycle in a mere eighteen months. The flavor of the day could easily be accomplished with this organizational skill and dexterity. On top of this they had lower prices. The Gang of 13 took over a failing company or did they? By 1982, Harley-Davidson sales went into a tailspin with plunging production. The USA was in a deep recession. Adding to the perfect storm was the flood of Asian imports that many believe were being sold in the U.S. below their manufactured costs. Whether this was true or not, how did a small country a half-world away manufacture a quality product that was faster, handled better, and was less expensive? Furthermore, these import motorcycles were more functional. Well, of course they did because USA motorcycle manufacturing offered old clunker styling that was slower, did not handle well, and broke down all the time! And for all of this, Harley-Davidson’s cost more. Insulting if one thinks about it. It is not that the Evolution was that good relative to their competitors because in my opinion it was not. However, the Evolution was stellar relative to what went before. I was a loyal Shovelhead rider, necessarily becoming a mechanic along the way. I like the rest of my ilk would never consider riding any other product. I did not care that a Honda might be functionally better, less expensive, and not require my newfound mechanical skills. Honda simply did not give what my psyche craved. Importantly, H-D dropped its lackadaisical attitude towards copyright infringement, particularly with knock-off products. Harley-Davidson became extremely aggressive against the counterfeiting of their trademarks. It licensed use of its logos with all manner merchandise that was embraced by mainstream America followed by the world including the Japanese. H-D then saw the birth of HOG, the most successful marketing and loyalty campaign in the annals of corporate sustenance. The world embraced this pasteurized version of the outlaw subculture. You might meet the nicest people on a Honda but Harley riders are all about cool. They adapt a pseudo-outlaw lifestyle that emulates freedom and individualism. They spend much of their time adopting one charity or another to prove they really aren’t bad. Many charities benefitted greatly during the Harley boom. Can these riders be contesting the Honda mantra of niceness? The previous owners AMF deserve much credit for the success of Harley-Davidson. They gave the Gang of 13 a platform from, which to launch. These new guys were brighter than bright. They put a management team together that knew no bounds in success. I am sure that Marketing 101 in every business school teaches and will continue to teach their brilliant story. Harley-Davidson became the epitome of American manufacturing and marketing, the darling of capitalism at its finest. Think about it! How could a rusty old manufacturer whose time had drifted by reach such pinnacles of success? Well, H-D had a little help along the way with two main sociological factors: 1. The post World War II baby boom, the aging bulge in American demographics looking for adventure and whatever (safely) came their way. 2. A generation that worked hard; raised families and then looked back at what they had missed in their youth. Harley-Davidson embodied the freedom and adventure they lacked. Harley-Davidson was granted two decades, in which to plan a lasting and viable future. It sought to be the motorcycle of mainstream America. The world would follow. This venerable company almost pulled it off. The Motor Company updated technology both in their manufacturing venue and in the product itself. H-D balanced on a near-impossible fulcrum, maintaining tradition on one side and complying with environmental dictates on the other. The Evolution’s successor, the air-cooled Twin Cam introduced in 1999 with great success. H-D continued to grow and prosper. I have always viewed the Twin Cam as a transitional model embracing the past but leading into a future of overhead cams and water jackets. The new H-D V-Rod’s technological marvels are a wonderful attempt but as much as the Factory hoped, mainstream Harley riders did not take the bait en masse. After all they had their psychological needs. These attempts did not prevent dark clouds from appearing on the horizon: 1. Inexorably, the post World War II baby boom’s bulge has grown older, losing interest in reclaiming youth with interests shifting elsewhere. Who is to take over this downsizing market? Who will be left to support the Motor Company in the style it has become accustomed? 2. In my humble opinion, the masters of marketing did not fill the coming void of consumers. I think H-D is good at pretty much everything except lowering prices for the incoming generations. Nor have they developed affordable and desirable product lines for the youth. Certainly, the Factory began to enjoy economies of scale in manufacturing. I for one do not think they have used their profits wisely for continued prosperity. Will I continue to ride a Harley at age 62? Sure I will but I was riding them before they became cool. I am not a dentist looking for a safe walk on the wild side or a movie star acquiring the in-bauble of the day. The Evolution motorcycle saved the Hog’s bacon but a new savior is now required.

Simultaneous Statistical Inference, which was published originally in 1966 by McGraw-Hill Book Company, went out of print in 1973. Since then, it has been available from University Microfilms International in xerox form. With this new edition Springer-Verlag has republished the original edition along with my review article on multiple comparisons from the December 1977 issue of the Journal of the American Statistical Association. This review article covered developments in the field from 1966 through 1976. A few minor typographical errors in the original edition have been corrected in this new edition. A new table of critical points for the studentized maximum modulus is included in this second edition as an addendum. The original edition included the table by K. C. S. Pillai and K. V. Ramachandran, which was meager but the best available at the time. This edition contains the table published in Biometrika in 1971 by G. 1. Hahn and R. W. Hendrickson, which is far more comprehensive and therefore more useful. The typing was ably handled by Wanda Edminster for the review article and Karola Decleve for the changes for the second edition. My wife, Barbara, again cheerfully assisted in the proofreading. Fred Leone kindly granted permission from the American Statistical Association to reproduce my review article. Also, Gerald Hahn, Richard Hendrickson, and, for Biometrika, David Cox graciously granted permission to reproduce the new table of the studentized maximum modulus. The work in preparing the review article was partially supported by NIH Grant ROI GM21215.

Graphics, pictures, and charts guide the reader on a sure-footed journey to a thorough H-D Twin Cam understanding. Petersen's insight makes technical issues understandable even to the motorcycle novice in easy-to-understand language. The Secrecy Agreement Ya'll Ain't Gitten in der Boy! Dats were da secret stuff is. The cabby asked. Where ya'll going, boy. Juneau Ave, 3700 West Juneau Ave. I said. Wastin' yer time, boy. He admonished. Ya'll ain't gitten in der. Dats were dey do dat secret stuff You mean research and development? I volunteered. Ain't dat what I said boy! I will wait here. Got me a two-way trip, cuz you ain't gitten in. The old six-story building at 3700 West Juneau Ave. in Milwaukee looks exactly what it is, a pre World War II factory. It now houses H-D's corporate offices, normal and secret storage, and Harley-Davidson Archives. The modern Milwaukee factories are located on Pilgrim Road, which normally does not offer tours and the Capitol Drive Plant that does have public tours. It has a little Harley store, which has exclusive souvenirs only available there. Out front of the Juneau facility is a Harley's only parking lot with a No Cages Allowed sign. Surrounding this primo parking area are the less desirable parking areas for the cages (cars). The security in the lobby inside was strict. Enclosed in protective glass was a 1903 Harley-Davidson. It was gussied up to look better than it did back then. Its single-cylinder 3 HP belt-driven engine with no transmission contrasted greatly with the 95th anniversary Road King in the opposite corner. After this article was published in American Iron Magazine, Dr. Martin Rosenblum, the official Harley-Davidson historian wrote a letter to AIM asserting that I was incorrect and that the 1903 Harley was indeed totally original and identical to when manufactured. Dr. Rosemblum wrote, Thank you for the wonderful piece you wrote entitled Security at Juneau Ave. However, you made a serious error in referring to our 1903-04 Harley-Davidson as a replica. It is not. It is the real thing. Please inform your readers that we have Serial Number One in our lobby for the world to see just as it rolled out of the original factory. Dr. Martin Jack Rosenblum Harley-Davidson Archives Historian I replied 1903 Harley-Davidson that's been gussied up to look better than it did back then. I could tell the bike wasn't a replica but I commented to a factory worker who was conducting a tour that it sure was pretty. It was obviously nicer looking than it was in 1903. He laughed and said, It sure is. Donny Petersen. We disagree but Dr. Rosenblum is an authority on Harley-Davidson and did a wonderful job historically documenting the history of this venerable company. Harley-Davidson Secrecy and Security Returning to the lobby, opposite the 1903 H.D., the Harley emblazoned black leather furniture sat in the third corner nearest the door outside. A security guard sat at the front door beside the enclosed black check-in counter. Above him in orange neon was the Bar and Shield, Harley's symbol. After I identified myself, the secretary phoned the magic name I proffered and all of a sudden, I was okay. Wait for security. Sign in this book, wear this security tag while in the building, and turn it in when leaving. Cameras were prohibited. You must agree to random searches at any time. In addition, the legal department requires signing a confidentiality agreement. You are not allowed to discuss anything you see until June 25th. The date was March 18, 1998. Do you have any idea how hard it was not to discuss the Twin Cam Fathead for three whole months while all the people supposedly in the know give opinions about what the Factory was doing? H-D's top engineers taught us over the best part of a week. We have held each individual part in our hands, seen the
