I like the bike builds, but I wish they would lose Seate. He doesn't do anything for the show. I was tired of him decades ago when he was writing a column for the original Iron Horse mag.

It's not so much the push rods as the hydraulic lifters, which have also been used in OHC applications (some Honda Nighthawks I believe, probably more).
