Question about 2000 Harley Davidson XL Sportster 883
Simple fix. Take the fuel tank off and remove the four bolts that hold the rocker box covers on. If the rocker box is leaking there, simply put a new gasket in place, carefully align the top plate and put the bolts back in. Torque them to 100 inch pounds.
If the lower rocker is leaking remove the smaller 1/4" bolts and then remove the larger 5/16 inch bolts. Remove the larger bolts a turn at a time until they are completely loose. Lift the lower rocker plate and replace the gaskets. Reposition the lower plate and align the pushrods in the rocker arms. Do not mix up the push rods, mark them if necessary. Tighten the 5/16" bolts down evenly until just seated. Then put the 1/4" bolts in. Torque the 5/16" bolts to 15-18 ft. lbs and 1/4" 10-13 ft. pounds. Reinstall the middle and upper rocker boxes and torque those bolts.
