SOURCE: Adjusting timing on Harley Davidson 1976 sportster

The advance timing should be 35° before Top Dead Center. This is how you find out which mark this is.

Get the rear wheel of the bike off the ground, remove the spark plugs, shift the bike into fourth gear, and remove the timing plug from the left engine case.
Now, take an ordinary PLASTIC DRINKING STRAW and insert it into the front spark plug hole. Do not use anything else or you stand a chance of it breaking and then you'll have to pull the head to get it out. The plastic straw will bend but not break.
Bump the rear wheel in the direction that it turns while riding down the road until the piston pushes the straw all the way up and just barely starts going back down. Look into the timing hole. You should see a timing mark. This is the Top Dead Center mark. Now, bump the rear wheel BACKWARDS until you see another mark. This should be the ADVANCED TIMING MARK. The piston should 7/16" down from top dead center.

On this model Sportster the timing is advanced by a mechanical advance mechanism. These units are notorious for wearing out and not contolling the timing very well. You must remove the breaker plate to inspect this mechanism. Mark the position of the plate before you remove it. If the pins and holes in the flyweights are worn, replace the unit. Replace it with a good needle bearing unit. Replace the points and reset the gap at 0.018 - 0.020".

1995 883 harley sportster i would like to know what is involved in removing primary cover?.........please


There are a number of allen head bolts you have to remove, unless you are planning on working on your clutch or your primary chain needs replacing I would not bother going to all the trouble of removing it, as the primary chain adjuster can be accessed through the the small access plate in the primary cover. You will have to replace the gasket but you won't lose your primary oil this way.
If you do remember you will have to replace the gasket and the primary oil when you reassemble as well as torquing the bolts back to their specifications.

Need to know how to get off outer primary cover off of 1979 harley davidson


Lower the primary chain adjuster under the primary but loosening the locknut and turning the adjuster screw downwards. Take the large nut that holds the foot peg on off. Take all the bolts out around the primary. Take the round inspection cover off at the clutch and remove the spring and lock nut out. Turn the clutch adjuster screw in there clockwise until the primary cover comes off.

Best oil for the primary and secondary?


I don't know what you are referring to when you say "secondary". The best engine oil is the H-D Syn3 20W50 oil. You can use most any oil you want as long as it has the proper API rating. I think Harley requires a "C" rating on their oil for use in diesel engines.

For the "primary" case and transmission, I use H-D Primary lube for Sportsters if I can find it. Harley had changed over to another name for the Sportster oil.

Now, there are several other manufacturers of lubricants that are suitable for use in your Sporty. Manufacturers like Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil, and a few others. You'll have to go to their websites to get a list of what to use where.

Good Luck
