Tightening primary nut on 1999 fatboy

Hi Anonymous, If you are talking about the compensating sproket nut you need to jam a large soft piece of metal aluminum or brass or a piece of hard wood on the bottom of the primary chain and compensating sproket to keep the engine from rotating. Then torque the sproket nut to 165 ft lbs. Good luck

Ef ford falcon 1994 tork specification for crank shaft pully nut

As it is difficult to torque set the nut on an assembled engine beacuse you cannot hold the crakshaft, normally if you use a good quality 1/2'' drive torque gun it will be sufficient

Hello, I'm installing new Thunderheader 2 - 1 exhaust pipes on my 2001 Fatboy. I need to know the torque specs on the bolts. Thanks!

Nuts (cylinder studs) - 60-80 inch pounds.
Nuts exhaust support tubes to frame - 19 foot pounds
Muffler support nuts - 19 foot pounds

Keep in mind that these torque values are for original stock equipment and may not be correct for your aftermarket parts applications. Use you common sense when installing the exhaust system. If a bolt looks and acts like it won't withstand the torque, don't try to apply it. People have been working on Harleys for years without the benefit of a torque wrench. It's not rocket science.

Good Luck

How to change drive belt 2001 harley davidson fatboy

To change the final drive belt on your Fatboy, first disconnect the battery. You have to drain the primary and remove the cover. Take the engine sprocket nut loose and remove the plate in the center of the clutch assembly. Remove the mainshaft nut that holds the clutch assembly on. This nut has LEFT HANDED THREADS. Then, remove the starter jackshaft. Go the right side of the bike and remove the exhaust system so that you can remove the starter. Then take the inner primary cover off. You may have to remove the front belt drive pulley. Since you're in this far, you may as well remove the pulley if you have the proper tools and replace all the transmission seals behind it. Then, remove the rear wheel and the swingarm. Do not bend the new final drive belt into a radius any tighter than about four inches or you may damage the cords inside the belt. You will need a torque wrench that is capable of applying at least 150 foot pounds of torque to the engine sprocket nut and torqe 60-80 pounds in the LEFT HANDED DIRECTION for the clutch assembly. The front belt drive pulley torques to 150-165 foot pounds as is also LEFT HANDED THREADS and you'll need a "belt pulley locking device" to hold it while you take the large nut off and put it back on. If you plan on doing this job, I would advise the purchase of a service manual as sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words.

Good Luck
