Question about Harley Davidson FXD Dyna Super Glide Motorcycles
The Night rider site is not set up so that one can ask a question. It's more a site that offers information about "how to" stuff so that you can read and learn how to do a job or verify that you have done the job correctly.
According to your response, I'm assuming you have good compression and you're confident in your work as the cams are concerned. Now, the problem seems to be more electrical rather than mechanical. Have you checked for spark at the plugs? The Twin Cam engines have a compression sensor. If this sensor does not sense compression, the plugs won't fire. This could be your problem since you installed the compression releases. Have you somehow over ridden these sensors?
P.S. I have no formal training with the Twin Cam enignes nor do I work on them. I've got all I want to do with the older models. Especially the Shovelheads. It's gotten very difficult to find a Shovelhead mechanic these days. The last year for the Shovel was 1984 for most models.
