Luck for both of us, I bought a shop manual with my 2000 wide glide.

It took some detective work but I found the torque settings.

First- apply loctite threadlocker to all five screws. Just a few drops. Red 262 is recommended. Make certain to use a washer on all screws.
Cast wheels = 55-65lbs.
Laced wheels = 45-55lbs.

The chamfered spacer should be installed with the largest end facing away from the wheel.

Hope that does it for you.

Living in WI, I'm getting real antsy to go riding. I call it the black top blues.

If you know what you're doing, then this is not a question you would be asking. Why did you remove the rear pulley in the first place? Do you have a belt deflection gauge? Do you know how to align the real wheel? Did you spend 2 years of your life and $30,000 learning how to work on HD's? Did you finish in the top 10% of your class? BTW, there is nopart as a "chamfered spacer".

    regarding the chamfered washer. It was late and I thought I had answered a question regarding an FXDWG. I had answered two or three and didn't realize it had popped up a Road King. There really IS a chamfered washer on the WG, but maybe not on the Road King I got that info from my Harley service manual so it is accurate.

    The first pic appeared too small to read so I enlarged it.

  • monkeybiznez Apr 02, 2015

    The pictures are so small I doubt you can read them. I increased the size of the photo but it did'nt look one bit larger.

  • monkeybiznez Apr 21, 2015

    I don't get it, I can't seem to get a photo that is big enough to read. But the service manual clearly shows a chamfered spacer for my wide glide.

SOURCE: Need the torque specs on clutch for a 85 FLHTC

The torque specs are the same as with any Evolution engine. The compensator sprocket 150-165 foot pounds.
Clutch hub nut (left handed threads) 60-80 foot pounds.

Use Loctite 271 on threads. Two lines in nut on Compensator and one line in clutch hub nut.

Pulley and belt

This is one hell of a job so if you aint got patience get someone who has to do it. Here goes;
Get her up on the main stand or jack her up. Ensure the weight is carried on the front wheel otherwise get a jack to raise/support the rear.
Loosen rear wheel adjusters and push wheel assembly as far forward as it will go.
Lift old belt from the top of rear pulley and as you ease the belt towards you rotate the wheel/pully towards the rear this will allow the belt to be eased off the pulley. MIND YOUR FINGERS
Now remove the rear wheel assembly completely, not forgetting to disconnect the torque arm and brake cable / rod if your bike has drum brakes.
Remove the drive pulley cover and ease the belt off.
Now the worst bit, the swing arm has to come off to allow the belt to go around it.
Disconnect shocks from swing arm (lower mounts only will be ok)
Remove swing arm.
Install new belt on drive pulley, replace swing arm ensuring the belt goes around it and reassemble all other parts.
Making sure all nuts / bolts are torqued to makers specs.
When the rear wheel is back in the belt can be refitted to rear pulley using the same method as removal it will probably be harder being new but it will go.
Finally adjust the belt tension to makers spec and ensure wheel runs true. That's it now you can have a cup of tea you've earned it
