The book you need it either an OEM Harley-Davidson manual, part #99482-69 or a Chilton's M420 manual. Both are good manuals and readily available.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 1972 shovelhead harley-davidson engine rebuilt

Thirty over is nothing. I just finished a rebuilt on a 1970 model and we went 0.050" over on it. It was already at 30 over and the pistons scored.

Anyway, don't use one of these cheap Chinese made bendix's. Get an ACCEL. They may be made in China but they're better. You can't get good Shovelhead parts anymore.

Now, before you put the outer primary back on, use your hand and operate the fork that shifts the bendix into engagement with the ring gear. Does it engage like it's supposed to. You'll probably have to turn it just a bit. Now, do it again with the outer primary on. Does it still engage smoothly?

Now, here's the cause of most starter grinding problems on a shovel. The starter, ring gear, and outer primary are all out of alignment. The starter housing, the one with the big gear in it is supposed to have alignment pins in it as well as the outer primary. These pins are to ensure that the starter drive and the ring gear are properly aligned with each other. With the starter and outer primary on, you should be able to pull on the plunger of the solenoid and the starter drive engage fully and smoothly. Also don't forget the large brass washer. This keeps the drive from going too far.

If you're worried about low voltage, take the battery to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test the battery. If it drops below 10 volts, buy a new battery.

Hi, Adam based on your info my first guess would be your main jet is too small but the lean rear cylinder would not cause a hard start situation you may have a weak battery or a faulty starter I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley Davidson but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one.

Harley davidson 78 shovelhead diagnose and repair manual


Hi, Joseph the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manuals please click on the blue links below and for more specific information or questions at no charge please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Is the primary wet or dry for a 1983 harley davidson fxrs?


The 1983 came with the Shovelhead engine and the primary case was Harley's "dry" primary. Look to see if the hose on the bottom back side of the primary is still on it and it runs up to the engine behind the oil pump. If it is, it's the dry primary. Since people have so many problems with the dry primary, they often convert them to wet primaries. Doing so eliminates a lot of the hoses you see on the Shovelhead.

Good Luck
Steve
