Question about Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide Motorcycles
Front cylinder not firing
3 things to check 1 / check for fuel at cylinder is spark plug wet with fuel if so go to 2 . if not check carbs butterfly / jets etc ?.
2/ compression .. remove spark plug and fit compression tester should attain between 120 t0 150 psi or be in green for none numbered meters .. if not suspect valve seatings or cylinder head gasket ?. or compresion rings . if ok
2 check for spark at plug place plug in cap and place on side of engine turn over and look for good spark ( some plugs spark when out of cylinder but break down under preassure I am sumising you tried a new plug first ) if no spark check ignition /distributor cap and rotor arm clean and refit or replace . if all fails then can only suggest that you take to garage and have a tune test performed .. hope this helps.. Regards vortash
