JIMS Product Additions

Piston Jet Test Stand
Stock piston jets sometimes fail. Fact. Sumping oil on Twin Cam and M-8 engines, noisy tappets at start-up, excessive top end heat - all of these conditions can easily be diagnosed incorrectly, which can lead to wasted time, money and effort or, worse yet, an expensive engine failure.
The check valve inside can be open at idle, adding too much oil to the crankcase, resulting in a sumping condition. Or, worse yet, the top end of the engine can be oil starved causing heat and premature damage or engine failure. JIMS has now updated its piston jet test stand to include BOTH applications - Milwaukee-Eight and Twin Cam.

"Before you spend time, money and effort chasing a problem in the wrong direction, be sure that the piston jets are functioning properly. For more quick and concise information on piston jet failure rates and how this test stand works, check out our Baxters Garage 'JIMS Piston Jet Test Stand' video on YouTube."

Magnetic Tappet Holder
Changing or upgrading cams, cam support plate and the oil pump is one of the most common tasks done on Harley-Davidson engines. This new and simple low-cost tool will easily hold the tappets in the tappet bores when the cam is removed. 
Simply install the tool over the tappet cover and the rare earth magnets will magnetically hold the tappet in place while performing any cam chest work - a time saver for any technician. This tool is designed to work on both Twin Cam and Milwaukee-Eight engines. Included with the tool is a form fitted tray that will protect the magnets from damage when stored in the technician’s toolbox.
