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

My 92 fxrs Harley turns over but won't


Hi Jasong1969, when checking for spark the CKP needs to measure the compression bump in order to send the correct signal to the ICM/ECM so always check for spark with either a third plug grounded or lift the end of the plug boot 1/2 " off one of spark plugs that are in the head. and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty
2. Fuel supply valve turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded with gasoline as a result of over use of enrichner.
5. Fuel valve or filter clogged.
6. Vacuum hose to automatic fuel supply valve disconnected, leaking, or pinched.
7. Discharged battery, loose or broken battery connections.
8. Loose wire connection at coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, spark plug cable connections loose,
or cables connected to wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to faulty ignition coil, ignition module, or sensors " Manifold Absolute Pressure" "Camshaft Position Sensor" "Crank Position Sensor" "Brake Apply Sensor
11. Engine lubricant to heavy ( winter operation )
12. Sticking or damaged valves or push rod wrong length.
13. Primary cam sproket spline sheared or missing spacer.
14. Security alarm system not disarming.
For a primary suspect please visit the website below: Good luck

Want to get a service manual for a 1986 harley fxr low rider


The Harley FXR Super Glide Also known as FXRS turned in to the Dyna Lowrider, Either way the proper term Is FXRS. Non the less, Harley service manuals during that time was not year by year like it is today. Here is an example of the exact manual you will need.

http://www.latus-harley-davidson.com/Harley-Davidson-Service-Manual-for-1984-1990-Touring-FXR-Models.htm

You can maybe look on ebay or craigs list, though it may be more rare than we think.

Hope this helps.

Is the primary wet or dry?


Ever since the introduction of the Evolution engine design in 1984/85, the primaries have been wet type primaries. The "dry" primary went out of existance with the old 'Shovelhead' engine.
