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.

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

I have a 2003 Harley road king Police bike. I have 10000 miles on it. I am erperiencing a chinging sound when downshifting. I suspect the tension on the small chain inside the transmission. Is there a way...


I'm sorry but there is no chain in a Harley transmission. The only chains on your bike is in the cam chest of the engine. They drive the two camshafts that operate the valves.

Now, most of the time when riders complain about a "chirping" noise when they shift gears, it's because the final drive belt is too loose. It will make a noise every time you shift a gear, up or down. Check the tension on your rear belt and see if that helps.

Good Luck

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.
