Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
How to tighten the primary nut
Posted by Anonymous on
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

SOURCE: I have a 1999 fatboy
On a '99 Fatboy, you can use H-D Syn3 20W50 engine oil in all three locations. But, you can use most any lubricant you wish as long as it meets Harley's specifications. Amsoil, Royal Purple, Mobil V-Twin, just check the manufacturer's website for compatibility. On the Evo engines, I use H-D or Mobil V-Twin synthetic 20W50 engine oil. I use nothing but H-D transmission and primary lubricant in those two locations.

SOURCE: How do I tighten a
You take the oval inspection cover off of the outer primary cover. Inside you will see a nut. Loosen the nut and you can raise the primary chain adjuster to tighten the chain or lower it to loosen it. Use your finger to gauge the tension of the upper run of the chain. Set the up and down play of the chain to 3/4" to 7/8" with the engine cold.

SOURCE: I replaced the front brake
The bolts that you tightened has nothing to do with the rattle. In reality, the caliper slides along these bolts as the pads wear. Usually, the pads hold enough pressure against the rotor even when the brakes are not applied to prevent rattling. The rear pad is held in place by a plate with a bolt that screws into the rear pad. The pad on the outside has a flat spring that holds it into the cavity in the piston to prevent it from rattling. The caliper has o-rings inside the bores where the bolts go through to keep it tight on the two bolts you put in. Grab the caliper and try to shake it. If you can shake it, these o-rings are most likely gone. Refer to this drawing to see what I'm talking about.
