1996 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat Boy engine case primary lip broke

Hi, Dwayne, I have run into this situation many times and it's usually caused by incorrect engine and transmission alignment and or loose bolts. If most of the lip is still intact then you can silicone a new o-ring into the inner primary let it dry for 24 hours then apply another layer of silicone on the exposed side of the o-ring and install the inner primary with bolts finger tight or you can grind off the remaining lip and install a special gasket kit for this situation. Starting in the middle and working outwards in a criss-cross or circular pattern torque inner primary bolts to 7 ft. lbs. grab the main shaft of the transmission and turn it to make sure it spins free, repeat the process with the torque wrench set at 14 ft. lbs. and spin the main shaft repeat the procedure a 3rd and final time with the wrench set at 20 ft. lbs. then spin the main shaft.

My outer primary wont stop leaking on my 1974 shovelhead.

Hi Anonymous, check the mating surfaces for cracks, deep pry marks ect. use silicone to fill any serious imperfections and weld any cracks. The surfaces should be clean of all previous glued on gaskets. You can use Gasket Cinch if you want to hold the new thick silicone bead impregnated gasket in place. Make sure all mating surfaces are clean and dry and install primary cover. I would do the same with the inspection and derby cover, someone makes silicone beaded gaskets for them also. Then in a criss cross pattern starting in the middle and working your way out ward torque screws to 5 ft lbs. then repeat the sequence to a final torque value of 10 ft lbs. This procedure is imperative to insure proper clamp load on the primary cover. Fire up the bike and ckeck primary vacuum it should be 25 inches of water vacuum with the vent line pinched and the engine running at 1,500 RPM. If you get zero on the gauge you got problems. Usual suspects are: broken or cracked engine case lip, bad motor sproket, inner primary, or starter jackshaft seal. And my personal favorite cracked inner primary just below the starter jackshaft cause by a loose chain. Good luck

Need to know how to change 85 lowrider alternator. Fxr. And help would begreat

  1. Replacing the Alternator
    • 1 Remove the drain plug located under the clutch area of the primary chaincase and drain the chaincase lubricant into a catch pan. Remove all mounting bolts from the primary cover and slide the cover from its locating studs. Loosen the primary chain tensioner and inspect it for wear (this is a logical time to replace the tensioner shoe, since you are in the case).
    • 2 Lock the primary chain where it enters the bottom of the clutch drum. Remove the engine sprocket nut and slide the compensator/sprocket assembly from the engine sprocket shaft. Slide the reluctor bowl off the engine sprocket shaft. Push the stator plug through the hole into the inner primary case. Remove the stator mounting bolts and slide the stator from its support boss. Remove the stator from the case.
    • 3 Slide the new stator onto the support boss and orient it so that the stator wires are closest to the stator plug hole in the case. Install and torque the new stator bolts to factory specification (refer to manufacturer's torque sheet). Do not re-use the old bolts. The bolts come pre-treated with Loctite and are designed for one-time use. Insert the stator plug into the plug hole and snap it into place.
    • 4 Slide the reluctor bowl onto the sprocket shaft and bottom it onto the shaft shoulder. Align the splines on the shaft and the compensator/sprocket assembly and slide the assembly into position. Install the engine sprocket nut and torque to factory specification for your model of Harley. Adjust the primary chain tensioner to factory specification.
    • 5 Scrape the old primary gasket from the case. Harley Davidson gaskets are produced with a print-o-seal feature that melts and '"cooks" onto the case surface. Insure that all of the old gasket is removed from the machined surfaces. Use caution when scraping the gasket, as the cast-aluminum cases are easily gouged, leading to poor sealing and leaks. Install the fresh gasket onto the locating studs, followed by the primary chaincase cover. Torque the primary cover to the proper torque and in the recommended pattern according to the specification sheet for your model of Harley. Remove the inspection plate and add new chaincase lubricant. Replace the inspection cover gasket and re-install the inspection plate.

Is there a bolt patern while removing the primary housing on a 07 dyna superglide

Well, some say that you always torque the bolt starting from the center and working out but I've done a lot of them and always just started at the top and went around clockwise. There are two bolts that hold the inspection cover on that also hold the outer primary on as well. I think they are the one at 12 o'clock and 3 o'clock position. There is also a small gasket between the inner and outer primary covers on these two bolts.

Good Luck

Can I take off the left side mid controls, and put a plain inspection cover on a 1984 fxr or do I have to cap it

Your 1984 FXR has the mid mount shifter on it. You can change over to a forward shifter and eliminate you mid mount shifter. To do this, you must pull the outer primary, the clutch and primary chain assembly and the inner primary to get the shifer shaft out of the primary. You must pull the inner primary off to get the old shift shaft out. You can put a plain inspection cover on the outer primary but you've got to close the hole in the backside of the inner primary. I use a 1/2" freeze plug that you can get at almost any auto parts house. Just measure the hole to make sure of the size you need. I'm not out in the shop or I could tell you for sure. Coat the freeze plug (welch plug) with some non-hardening PermaTex and drive it into the hole. Should you ever wish to change it back to stock, simply drive the plug out and you're back in business.

Good Luck
