Question about Harley Davidson FLHR - FLHRI Road King Motorcycles
I'm sorry but I don't have an oilling diagram of a Twin Cam. The way I check for blocked passages to the tappets is while I've got the tappet blocks out, I turn the engine over using the transmission in high gear and turn the rear wheel with the plugs out of the engine. I watch for the oil to pump up and out of the engine. Now, since I don't work on the Twin Cam engines I'm going to say something here that I'm not sure about. See if the engine has a tappet oil screen like an Evolution engine does. It a plug with a very fine mesh screen thingy that all the tappet oil flows through. Keeps trash out of the tappets.
Have you ridden the bike since you replaced the tappets? Sometimes you have to ride them a ways to get all the air out of the tappets. I've had to ride them for ten miles to get them to quieten down before. Now, if you only have one tappet causing a problem, shut the engine down and pop the pushrod tubes immediately. Try to turn the pushrods with your fingers. If can turn one or two, there is your problem
