SOURCE: 77 harley sportster is spitting oil out of the cam cover breather

because it is breathing too heavy.
The reason into fixing that is to run a hose from the breather to a tin with a lid and run another hose from the tin the the air filter.

SOURCE: starter not always turning motor

Possible solution. You probably know that harleys, unlike almost all the others used a bendix type to shove the starter motor's gears into engagement with the starter clutch. Since you replace the solenoid, the thing that pushes the gears into engagement; the battery, that would push the starter motor if the gears were in engaagement; and the starter motor, which would turn the ring gear if it was in engagement. So wht's left? Unfortunately it sound like it might be the teeth on either the ring gear or the bendix gear, probably the ring gear as it was notoriously weak on iron sportys. Not a problem you want to try to fix at home unless blessed with tools, room and time.

Does the #1 piston have to be on tdc before replacing the cams in my 2006 harley sportster which is the #1

No, completely ignore any marks on the flywheels. These are for ignition timing only. Align the cams using the mark on the pinion gear and the cams. The pinion gear mark must be aligned with the mark on the pinion shaft. Once this is on correctly, align the marks on the cams to the pinion gear and the other cams. Once the engine is back together. set the ignition timing using the flywheel marks. There is no #1 cylinder, this ain't an automotive engine. You have a front cylinder and a rear cylinder. All timing marks on the flywheel are for the front cylinder. Front cylinder top dead center and Front cylinder advanced timing marks.

Good Luck

Tming settings on gears how to put them together by the marks

First, make sure you've got the oil pump drive gear and the pinion on the pinion shaft of the crank and the nut properly torqued. Identify the cams. You should have a "1W", "2W", "3W" and a "4W". "1W" is the rear exhaust and "2W" is the rear intake. "3W" is front intake and "4W" is front exhaust. They go into the engine cases in order 1W in rear, next 2W over the pinion gear, 3W in front of the pinion gear, and 4W all the way to the front of the engine.

Install the "1W" cam. Then install the "3W" and the "4W" cam with the timing marks aligned. Now position the pinion gear with the timing mark straight up and lock the crank. Now, you must install the "2W" cam last making sure that the three timing marks are aligned with the pinion gear, the "1W" cam, and the "3W" cam.

If you can't figure it out, contact me directly at and I'll send you a picture.

Good Luck

Will the front wheel off of 2000 sportster fit 1995 sportster?

Hello, No a 2000-up Wheel has "Sealed Bearings" and the Lip around where the Disc Rotor Bolts is Larger (2.200") than the 1995 Wheel which has a Lip around where the Disc Rotor Bolts is 2.000". Also The width of the 2000-up Wheel will be a little Wider (about .200" = a little under 1/4"). The Wheels from 1984-1999 will be the Same for the Same Model of Harley. All Harley Wheels from 1973-1999 used 3/4" "Timken" Bearing (Tapered Caged Rollers), Wheels 2000-Up used "Sealed Bearings" 3/4" & 1" I.D. and in 2008 some started using 25mm Wheel Bearings. Anything is Possible if you Own a Machine Shop and want to Bore out your 1995 Disc Brake Rotor I.D. to 2.220" and Make New Axle Spacers and Machine off aprox. .100" off each side of the Hub. Thanks Bob @ Bob's Cycle Supply Since: 1976
