How do i set timing on a 1985 evolution engine

This is easier if you have a helper. The timing plug is at the top of the left side of the engine case. Remove this plug to see the left flywheel. The timing marks are on the flywheel. You can get a clear plastic plug to screw into the hole from Drag Specialties for a couple of bucks. Harely doesn't sell it any more.. If you don't have this tool, you will get oil in your face. Check the timing with a timing lite thru this hole. You want the solid line on the flywheel centered in the hole. You adjust the timing from the nose cone in the cam cover on the right side of the bike. Loosen the screws on the cam timing pickup in the nose cone so you can move the pickup with a screw driver. This is where a helper comes in handy. One person can check the mark on the left side while the other person moves the pickup to the left or right to get the timing right on. Good luck!

How to replace an harley 1998 roadking timing cover

If you're talking about the "nose cone", you can sometimes take it off and get another back on without taking the pushrods out. I've done this on an occasion or two.

Start by taking the small plate off the timing cavity where the ignition pickup is located. Mark both the plate and inside of the timing cover in a way that you can get the timing set as close as possible with the new "nosecone". I'd suggest taking one of the standoffs that hold the plate in and marking the plate with the centerline of the bolt hole, When you put it back in with the new nosecone, since it will not be marked, align the mark with the centerline of the bolt hole in the new cover. Then, take the other standoff out and remove the "timing cup" you find under the plate.

Now, take all the bolts out of the "nosecone". They are different lengths so make sure you make a note of which bolt goes where. Look back near the oil pump and you'll see a small ledge of the nose cone that extends over the crankcase edge. Use this area to gently pry the nosecone away from the case slightly. Once you get a small gap on that side, work a putty knife around to the other side. There is a dowel pin right at the top point of the nosecone. Now, as you work the nosecone off the engine case, you must hold the cam to the inside of the case and not allow it come move forward. If it does, the tappet rollers will fall off the lobes of the cams and you WILL have to remove the pushrod then. Gently continue to pry the nosecone off. Once the nose cone is off, make sure the plastic shim on the plastic breater gear is on the end of the gear. If not, use some thick grease to "stick" it back on the gear. Make sure there are no teeth broken off the breather gear as well. DO NOT REMOVE THE BREATHER GEAR NOR TURN THE ENGINE OVER WITH THE NOSECONE OFF. If you do, you WILL have to pull the pushrods.

Now, install a new gasket, lube the bushings in the new nosecone with some oil, and start it on the crank end and the cam. Push the nose cone up into position making sure the dowel pin is aligned. Then, you can smack the nose cone at the timer cavity hole and generally it will pop back on the engine cases. If so, you lucked out provided you didn't change the timing on the camshaft or the breather gear. That's why I told you not to remove the breather gear nor turn the engine, to keep everything properly timed.

Now, if the nose cone popped back on like it should have, you've lucked out. If not, you'll have to pull the rocker boxes, the rocker shafts, and the tappet blocks to get the new nosecone back on the engine. When you reinstall the tappet blocks, you'll need a pair of tappet block alignment pins to get them properly aligned.

You'll have to do a bit of electrical work to get the timing sensor out of the old nosecone as the wires will have a plug on the end. You'll have to "unpin" the plug and the repin it correctly once you get the wires in the hole of then new nosecone. Then install the timing cup and the timer plate aligning the mark with the hole. If all went well, your bike should start and run well.

Good Luck

Ive got the cover loose all bolts are out ican get the cover about 1/8 to 1/4 inch away from motor than it wont move

Ok, the post that I'm looking at does not tell me which cover you're talking about but I would guess that it is the cam cover or "nose cone". You've taken the bolts out and tried to remove it but it only came about a quarter inch and will not come off any further and will not go back on either. The reason is that you have not taken enough off yet.

What is holding you back is the tappets. You have not removed the pushrods or the tappets and the cam has slid out of the rear bearing. The tappets have come off the lobes of the cam and are sitting down between the lobes. This is why the cam (and the cover) will not come off. Seems you've gotten yourself into a bind on this one. It's going to be a long drawn out deal but maybe I can help you out of the bind.

First, before I spend hours typing in everything, I need to know if I'm correct in my assumption that you're talking about the "nose cone" and why you tried to remove it. Please respond to this message.

Ihave a1981shovelhead my electranic inc went i had a crane but found a rev tec but cant figure out where the go

If you're asking where the electronic ignition unit is on a Shovelhead, it's under the "point cover" in the nose cone of the engine usually. The Crane unit is small enough to go in there. Never seen a RevTech unit but I'm sure it's about the same way. Some units use a sensor with the "black box" located somewhere else but I'd look under that little plate on the right hand side of engine in the nose cone.

Not running

Have you tried to push in gear ?

Remove the spark plug and see if this helps as there will be no obstruction to the compression.
Also remove the carburators and see if the intake are clean from any corrosion probabley due to water entered into the system thus seizing the valves and piston.
If all is clean and ok, thn the engine may have to be dismantled to check the siezure, could be at the crankshaft or the cylinders at the piston.
Not a bad idea if you first remove the starter motor thn tryto push it with any gear selected .

Good luck .
