looks like I will answer this question myself. I mailed in a trade in engine and a check for a new K&B Sportster .65 . I will run it as a glow until a can scrape up the cash for a Diesel head. I will post my glow rpm numbers shortly and diesel numbers when I get the diesel conversion head.

I understand the K&B 65 is an excellent conversion.
I purchased on with a conversion in mind, but have not moved forward with the project.

Please keep us posted with the data you collect

We'll have to see whose bushing .65 is the stronger, my LA .65 or your Sportster, good for you Francis.
