Question about Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic Motorcycles
To be perfectly honest with you, I don't know how to set the timing on a Twin Cam because I don't work on them. I do work on all Harley's prior to the Twin Cam.
With that being said, the way we'd do it on an Evo engine is remove the timing plug on the left side of the engine. Find the advanced timing mark and use a strobe light to check the timing with the engine running fast enough so that it would be at maximum advance. If we had to change the timing, we'd loosen the sensor plate in the timer cavity on the right side of the engine and rotate the plate in whichever direction we needed to move the timing, clockwise to ****** the timing, counterclockwise to advance it.
However, the Twin Cam gets it's timing pulses off of the left flywheel in the crankcase. Since it uses those pulses to determine the position of the crank, the timing may be set electronically instead of physically moving something. Maybe I'll buy myself a manual and see how Harley does it for myself.
I'm sorry I can't help you but I've got all the work I can handle working on the older bikes from Panheads, Shovelheads, Ironheads, Evo, and even the Italian Harleys and Hummers. I'm working on a Harley Topper right now for a guy.
