I would pull plugs again and examine them. Also connections from plug wire to plug and to coil. Do you have the original plugs if engine was running ok then. might try them.

Spark plug gap settings


The spark plug gap is posted on the tag right inside your hood. If not there, just ask the store where you got the plugs, they have the information on the screen when you order them and will write it down.
I think the gap is .42, but verify, or use Bosch platinums- they come preset!!!!

2001 XL883C Custom Sportster will crank but wont start.


Hi Eddsan78, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.

I need to know the correct way. in which to remove spark plugs


Well you need a Rachet set with a spark plug socket for your Car. Then place the socket on the spark plug after removing the wire and turn counter clockwise to remove it. Counter clockwise is turning left if looking at a clock. Be sure not to break the spark plug wires when removing them. You must hold them tightly at the end and pull them off slowly and carefully. Once you have the spark plug end of the wire off,, put it aside but remember which spark plug it goes too. It's very important not to mix them up.

When putting your new spark plugs in be sure to set the gap correctly or buy a set of spark plugs with preset gaps. Then place the new plug into the hole and turn them clockwise to tighten by hand at first them with your sparkplug socket and rachet until the new sparkplug is snug. Not to tight. Just snug as it will tighten a bit more on it's own. Then replace the spark plug wire carefully.
