No all you have to do is slide covers up and cut them with bolt cutters then replace with adjustable type push rods.

My pushrods are worn to an egg shape on the top, should I replace them? It's a 1995 Buick century special 4 cylinder.


the problem with replacing the push rods is that the new ones will not seal in the rockers
so to do the job properly you will have to replace the rockers as well

I need to change out bad pushrod rings on my 1989 sportster 1200, and i need detailed step by step directions, as i am ignorant in this area...


Hi, Peter you have 2 options method A use a set of bolt cutters to cut out the stock pushrods and replace them with adjustable aftermarket taperlites and new o-rings or method B remove the rocker boxes and stock pushrods replace the o-rings and rocker box gaskets, I prefer method A because it is faster and you can remove the adjustable push rods to do hydraulic lifter or cam work without taking off the rocker boxes the downside is the expense of the adjustable push rods and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley Davidson but despair not for a mere $7 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below, and for specific information or questions, please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a nice day.

How do i change a cam cover gasket on a 1999 harley davidson fat boy


Replacing the gasket on the cam cover of your Fat Boy is not a job for the faint hearted. It''s quite complicated because of the fact that you must get the pressure off the cam to get the cam cover back on once you get it off. You must also be very careful as to not change the camshaft timing with either the pinion gear or the breather gear.

If your Fat Boy has stock pushrods in it, you'll have to take the fuel tanks off, the air filter, and then take the rocker box covers off. Rotate the engine until you get one cylinder to top dead center on the compression stroke with both valves closed. Pull the push rod tube expanders out collapsing the pushrod tube and take the 5/16" bolt at the right end of the rocker arm shaft out. Slide the rocker arm shaft out and remove the rocker arm and the pushrod. Do this on boht the intake and exhaust pushrods. Notice that the pushrods are color coded meaning that they go in a particular location. Do not get them mixed up. Do the same thing to the other cylinder. The purple colored pushrod goes to the rear exhaust, the blue coded pushrod goes to the rear intake, the yellow coded pushrod goes to the front intake, and the green coded pushrod goes to front exhaust.

Now, that you have all the pushrods out of the engine, take the bolts out of the tappet guides and remove them. Keep the tappets in their original bores, do not mix them up. Check the roller bearings on end of the tappets for any up and down play. If you find a worn tappet, it should be replaced. You can replace the gasket on the cam cover without removing the tappet guides but you must remove the pushrods to get the pressure off the cam. If you remove the tappet guides, you will need a pair of "alignment pins" to align the tappet guides with the camshaft upon reinstalling them. Torque the bolts to 100 inch pounds.

Now, remove the cover that covers the ignition timing unit in the nosecone. Mark the timing plate inside the cavity so that you can reposition it in exactly the same place when you go to put it all back together. Remove the timing plate and the timing "cup" behind it. Take all the bolts out of the timing cover. The cover is mounted on two large dowel pins. You can pry the oil pump side of the cam cover off just a bit with a large screwdriver. Then, use a thin putty knife to work the other side loose. YOU MUST HOLD THE CAM IN POSITION BY PUSHING INWARD ON IT AS YOU REMOVE THE CAM COVER. DO NOT ALLOW THE CAM TO COME FAR ENOUGH TO LET IT GET OUT OF TIMING WITH EITHER THE PINION GEAR OR THE BREATHER GEAR. IT MUST BE TIMED CORRECTLY. The bolts that hold the cam cover on are different lengths, remember where they go.

When you go to reinstall the cam cover, make sure you get all the bolts in the correct holes. Reinstall the tappet blocks if you took them out. Reinstall the pushrods, pushrod tubes, and rocker arms in the last cylinder that you removed them from. Torque the 5/16" bolt to 13-15 foot pounds. Wait for the tappets to bleed down and you can turn them with your fingers. Turn the engine until the other cylinder is at top dead center on the compression stroke. Reinstall the pushrods, pushrod tubes, and rocker arms on that cylinder. Again wait until the pushrods will spin with your fingers before rotating the engine.

Reinstall the timing cup and the timing plate in the timer cavity in the cam cover. Make sure you get the marks you put on the plate and the cover aligned precisely. Reinstall the rocker boxes with new gaskets. Torque the bolts to 80-100 inch pounds. Reinstall the fuel tanks.

How to replace o rings on pushrods 1989 harleydavidson27 motorcycle


I'm assuming that you're talking about replacing the O-rings on the pushrod tubes. If so, you must remove the upper and middle rocker boxes from both cylinders. Then, you'll have to remove the rocker arms, one at the time, and replace the O-rings on the tubes. Do not mix the pushrods up. They are color coded and go in a specific location.

Good Luck

Backfire - Husqvarna YTH20K46


I find my 2148 runs much happier on the medium grade shell than on the cheaper gas. I did have a nasty POW, which resulted in bent pushrods, or perhaps the bent pushrods caused the POW. After replacing the pushrods, and adjusting same, the backfiring stopped altogether. knock on wood. The 21 is a B&S engine which has a propensity to the bent pushrods. Fortunately for me, my neighbor is a wiz at those fine adjustments.

I have a 1965 Ford 289 which I want to upgrade to a roller tip rocker arm. I ordered from Speedway Motors part #575-83201. I also ordered new pushrods and was sent part #915-14100. The new pushrods are...


You may be able to use them,there should be enough adjustment to make them work.FordMotorsports and Crane make a pushrod that is 8.640 which is what I used with those rockers.To check fit install 1 pushrod and 1 rocker on #1 cyl turn the engine over by hand 2 revolutions and then check and make sure the rocker tip is dead center on the valve,if it is you're good to go.
