Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FXST Softail Standard
Torque specs for screaming eagle adjustable pushrods for 99 Evo
Factory Evo lifters have a range of adjustment/compensation of a little over .200 of an inch. Your aim is to set the pushrods to run in the middle of that range. Screamin Eagle pushrods use a 24-pitch thread, which lengthens them by .041 n change per turn. Set the pushrod in place with the lifterer all the way down, adjust to zero play, then extend it by 15 flats of the hex, to a total of 2-1/2 turns, extending the pushrod .100 of an inch. This puts it in the middle of travel of the lifter, and you're on to the next! Remember to allow plenty of time for the lifters to bleed off oil between each rod adjustment before turning the engine, to avoid bottoming out a valve. Adjust one at a time, 10 minutes wait time between each pushrod is a good rule of thumb. Ride safe!

I have a slightly older springer, but they are probably the same. The shop manual says in reference to the acorn nuts on top of the spring restraints, "Tighten acorn nuts to 30-35 ft-lbs torque."

A little something to add to the above solution...be advised that there are TWO kinds of aftermarket pushrods for Harleys. Adjustable and easy install. Adjustable pushrods you have to break the cylinder heads loose to install them. The easy install type slips right in with no extra work. Make sure the ones you get can be installed without removing the cylinder heads.

Lay underneath the bike on the left side, and look towards the front of the bike, there will be a tube that runs from the back left side of the motor, to the right straight into the side of the frame with a hoseclamp on the end of it. to make sure you have the right rubber line, IT IS THE ONLY LINE WITH A HOSECLAMP ON THE ENTIRE BIKE. loosen the hoseclamp, and then pull the line off the frame (There is a stud welded on the frame, and this hose slides over it, and then the hoseclamp seals it off) This is your drain tube. Make sure the motor is warmed up *(of course) BEFORE you change the oil, let it drain until it's empty. MAKE SURE YOU STAND THE BIKE STRAIGHT UP, OFF THE KICKSTAND FOR ABOUT 15 SECONDS TO MAKE SURE IT ALL DRAINS OUT. Then put it back on the stud, and tighten the hose clamp. Loosen the filter on the front of the motor (it's a spin on car-type) Then replace it, make sure you put a thin film on the gasket of the NEW filter before replacing. It is normal to get oil on the front of the motor, it is unavoidable. it will hold 3 qts with filter.

I think the SE pushrods have a 32 TPI pitch on the threads. If so, with the tappet all the way down in it's bore, adjust the pushrod longer until it make contact with the tappet plunger. Now, continue to lengthen the pushrod by 18 flats or three turns. Allow the tappet to bleed down before you turn the engine over. When you can turn the pushrod with your fingers, you can safely turn the engine.
The object is to adjust the plunger in the hydraulic tappet to approximately the middle of it's travel. The tappest have about 0.200" of travel. So, you want to adjust the pushrod out until it has zero clearance then go another 0.100" inch. You can measure how much three turns lenghtens the pushrod before you install them just to make sure.
