American Prime Manufacturing Clutch Packs

Santa Fe Springs, California based American Prime Manufacturing (APM) continues to add to its product offer - these performance replacement clutch packs for 1990 and later stock or slightly modified Harley models feature an extra plate.
For 1990-1997 Big Twin and 1991-later XL models, the kit includes nine friction plates and eight tempered steel drive plates with 15% stiffer diaphragm spring.

For 1998-2017 EVO and Twin Cam models it includes nine friction plates, eight steel plates and the stiffer diaphragm spring with a pre-measured stack height.
For 1998 to 2017 Big Twin and Twin Cams it includes nine Kevlar friction plates on 6061-T7 aluminum cores and eight tempered steel drive plates, without the replacement spring.
Aggressive materials and tougher springs make these clutch packs "way better than stock," according to APM president Ben Kudon, and "ideal for modified or stock H-D models. For super modified applications, our Comp Master clutch is the way to go."

Also seen here, these APM 'EzyFit' OEM replacement oil pump fittings are said to be "easy to install and turn, even in the tightest places on top of the oil pump. These fittings accept a 5/16” Allen wrench - no more custom wrenches, scraped knuckles, damaged fitting edges or leaky oil pump fittings."
They feature fully machined oil passages for maximum oil flow and are precision-machined from solid brass and then show-chromed.

Finally, APM Shovelhead manifold adapter rings "are the perfect solution to the age-old question of what to do if the O-ring style manifold is converted to the better sealing rubber band? Our adapter rings are made of 30% glass filled nylon and have a melting point of approx. 500 degrees F, with a tensile strength of approx. 29000 psi.
"They are available individually or in pairs, are easy to install and are a perfect inexpensive fix to eliminate the manifold leaks that plagued the O-ring style manifolds for years."
