How to replace fuel pump on cub 1806?


The air intake will need to be taken loose so you may need those gaskets if the old ones get torn when you take it off. After the removel of the air intake to the cylinders, remove the fuel lines and then remove the bolts that holds the fuel pump in place. Also sometimes when these fail the crankcase will fill up with fuel.

Whats the procedure to adjust pushrods on a Harley evo motor equipped with solid lifters


Hi Anonymous, on old Harley Davidsons valve train tick can be caused by parts reaching thier service wear limits and based on years of experience and assuming that the tappet rollers and bearings and cam lobes are in good shape to eliminate anonnying valve tick I reccomend adjusting the pushrod when the the engine is warm to hot. When the front cylinder exhaust push rod is all the way up, adjust the rear cylinder exhaust push rod untill it spins but with noticeable drag. Then when the front cylinder intake push rod is all the way up adjust the rear cylinder intake push rod in the same manner. Apply the same procedure for adjusting front cylinder push rods. Good luck.

  1. Before servicing the vehicle, refer to the precautions in the beginning of this section.
  2. Drain the cooling system.

  4. Remove or disconnect the following:
    • Negative battery cable
    • Powertrain assembly
    • Intake manifold
    • Cam covers

    • Chain tensioner from the timing chain
    • Cam sprockets
    NOTE: The timing chain remains in the chain case.
    • Timing chain guides, access for the retaining screws is through the plugs at the front of the cylinder head
    • Water crossover
    • Exhaust manifold
    • Cylinder head bolts by reversing the torque sequence
    • Cylinder head and discard the gasket
    WARNING
    With the camshafts remaining in the cylinder head some valves will be open at all times. Do not rest the cylinder head on a flat service with the cylinder face down, or valve damage will result. NOTE: Clean all gasket mating surfaces. Clean the head bolt holes in the crankcase. WARNING
    Be careful when cleaning aluminum gasket surfaces to prevent damage to the sealing surfaces.
  5. Check the cylinder head for warpage; it must be less than 0.002 in. (0.05mm). If the cylinder head was resurfaced, the dimension between the combustion chamber gauge pad and the deck surface must be at least 10.5mm. To install: NOTE: Refer to Section 1 of this manual for the cylinder head torque sequence illustration. The illustration is located after the Torque Specification Chart.

Cam gears pulled out when changing gear box gasket trouble reinstalling due to tappets line cams up but front exhaust to tight to install


I'd be interested in knowing how the cam chest cover cam off changing a gear box gasket but.

In order to get the cams back in and to insure their proper timing, I'd put the rocker arms out. I'd pull them all out but you're free to do whatever you wish. Remove the top and middle rocker cover on the front clinder. Remove the large bolt that hold the lower plate and the rocker arm for the front cylinder in. Tap the rocker arm shaft out of the rocker arm and remove the rocker arm. You can then get your cam into position. Now, to get rocker shaft back in, rotate the engine until the front exhaust cam has the valve in it's closed position. Reinstall the rocker arm and shaft and torque the bolt to 25 foot pounds. Reassemble the upper and middle rocker box covers.

1989 Harley Sportser. Ok I just replaced the gaskets in the bottom and top end and side casings, I put all intake and exhaust gears on mark as described in manual, Test fired it and its spitting fuel out...


Run a compression test on both cylinders. They should be within 10% of each other. Since the Sportster has four cams, it is easy to get one of them out of time. I usually install the cams in reverse order, #4,#3,#2, then #1 as best as I can remember. Been a long time since I worked on a Sporty. It is imperative that all your cam timing marks be properly aligned. Cam #1 and #3 align with the marks on the #2 cam and cam #4 aligns with cam #3. Now, cam #1 and #4 look a lot alike and can be confused. Unless the cams are specifically marked which one they are, you have to pay attention to the color code marking position. The color code markings should be near 11 o'clock when cam #1 is timed properly and near the 3 o'clock position on cam #4 when it's time properly.

Valve timing


hello
ok to start intsall by putting the proper cams in their proper spots. they should be marked "FR IN" for front intake "FR EX" for front exhaust and so on. the caps should be marked as well. then tighten them down in a crisscross pattern at 15ftlbs. be sure that the cam journals were lubed before install as well. this will prevent siezure. if both cam sprockets were removed, install the front cylinders cam sprockets first. remove the crankshaft timing hole plug on the left side crankcase cover. and the crank bolt access plug as well. turn the crank counter clockwise till the marks FT notch aligns.
install the cam sprockets and cam flanges so that they read as follows. the timing marks FI for intake and FE for exhaust are flush with the valve cover gasket surface outwards opposing. then align the cam bolt holes while lobes are facing upward. you can then turn the crank counterclockwise to install the bolts. then you can remove the cap bolts to install the cam chain guide plate and instll it.
for the rear. turn the crank so that you see the same timing marks as mentioned earlier. with the crank on the FT position. and the cam sprocket marks to the outside flush with the gasket surface.
next turn the crank counter clockwise 3/4 turn or 270 degrees and align the RT mark in the flywheel inspection hole. then you will install the cam sprockets and chain and cam as the same as you did for the front.
i hope this helps. thanks

95 sporster speedometer


The timing of the plug change is probly chance Your speedo is a cable run from your front axle spacer between fork tube and Bering a spark plug or a wire could only put out the speedo light not affect the speed sensors caus there isn't one one a 95 sporty I only know cause I took off every thing on my chopper but headlamp tail lamp and starter switch and I had to make a custom spacer to take the place of my speed sensor slash Bering after I ditched my dash years ago on my 93 evo sporty
