Question about 1979 Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster
Hello I have a 1985 sportster 1000, I was just riding it the other day and it wanted to quit.. It lost compression in the front head, do you have any idea what I should do? Thanks
Remove the push rod tubee on the front jug.see if the pushrods are moving up and down.see if they are loose.if loose adjust try again.
your valves may be stuck open if not stuck open pour 1 once of mystery oil in head try comp test again.[this is to check the rings}if still no comp you have a hole in your piston or blown head gasket
