I have a 2000 Road King and I recently changed my cam chain tensioners and cam bearings and put ajustable pushrods in. For some reason I am getting reversion ( gas spraying out the carb ) I have checked everything out pulling the heads off checking the valves, looked for any kind of intake leaks and can find no problems do you have any ideas on this problem.

How to install a inter cam chain tensioner?


You need to open the cam compartment and then pull the cam plate to get at the rear one. Once the engine is sufficiently apart it is a simple matter to change the tensioners.

2006 street glide flhx. noisey valve train .geting worse.only 20.000 miles .just started in the last 2000 miles. are push rod ajustable? how can you tell if cam teniture is bad?


The stock pushrods are not adjustable. Screamin' Eagle pushrods from Harley are adjustable. To check the cam tensioners, you have to remove the cam cover on the right side of the motor to see the tensioners. You will need a flashlight to see the tensioner on the back side of the cam plate. If the plastic on the tensioners show excesssive wear, replace them. They typically need replacement after about 30,000 miles, but I've replaced them at 20,000 to 60,000+. I just put new ones in my Fatboy at 32,000. Have you recently changed from conventional oil to synthetic? This can give you a bit more valvetrain noise, due to the thinnner synthetic oil.

What is e most common cause to an engine knock on a 02 Harley davidson road king with 50000 miles bike still runs great no check engine lights are on and knock follows the rpm level


I'm sorry, but I don't know a lot about the Twin Cam engines but they are not that much different from the Evolution engines. One of the weak points in any Harley engine is the rollers on the ends of the tappets. The small needle bearing goes bad and it starts to knock. It will eventually lock up and ruin the camshaft that it's riding on. In your case there are two cams and it will ruin the one it's on. With 50K on the engine, that would be my guess as the I've seen the bottom ends of Evo engines still tight after 70K miles. I could also be one of the chain tensioners in the cam chest but usually people describe that noise as a whining type noise. If you still have the original pushrods in your engine, you will have to remove the rocker box covers to get the tappet blocks out.

Good luck
Steve

2001 H-D Road King engine knock


For valve train noise try these:
1. Low oil pressure caused by oil feed pump not functioning
properly or oil passages obstructed.
2. Faulty hydraulic lifter(s).
3. Bent push rod(s).
4. Incorrect push rod length.
5. Rocker arm binding on shaft.
6. Valve sticking in guide.
7. Chain tensioning spring or shoe worn.
8. Cam(s), cam gear(s) or cam bushing(s) worn.
9. Cam timing incorrect.

If it is a bottom end knock, an engine tear down may be in order.
