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!

SOURCE: Need the torque spec on the acorn nuts that fasten

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."

SOURCE: 95 Harley FXSTC Pushrod replacement

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.

SOURCE: where is the oil drain plug/bolt on a 2002 harley

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.

SOURCE: how do i adjust screaming eagle pushrods

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.

Good Luck
Steve

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.

How do i adjust my rockers on the rear jug took apart 2 fix base gaskets on rear jug


If your bike is equipped with the Evolution engine there is no adjustment on the rocker arms, the engine is equipped with hydraulic tappets. The pushrods on the Big Twin Evo engine are color coded and go in a particular position. They are different lengths. The blue color coded pushrod is the rear intake pushrod, the purple color coded pushrod is the exhaust pushrod. The pushrods for the Evo Sportster are all the same and there is no adjustment on those eiher provided they are stock.

Now, if you are working on something other than an Evolution engine or you have aftermarket pushrods, please repost and I'll tell you what I know about the valve adjustment for your engine.

What are the torque specs for the push rods on a 1993 sportster


Pushrods on a completely stock 1993 are one piece and have no torque spec as they are not of the adjustable variety. If you do in fact have "adjustable pushrods" and have set the adjustment according to the pushrods manufacturer's specification in conjunction with a good Harley service manual the nuts on the pushrod need to be good and snug........Tight, but do not bear down on the wrenches. Use your best judgement.
