Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles
Ok, the truth is that you must remove the carburetor. Somebody might be able to do it wihout removing the carb but I can't do it. To remove the carb, first take the large nut of the backside of the enricher cable and get if free of it's bracket that holds it on that end.
Now, on the rights side of the bike, remove the oir cleaner cover, the air filter. Remove the backing plate by taking the two large bolts out where the air cleaner backing plate is held to the heads. There may be some rubber plugs in the holes covering the bolts. Once they are out. Start loosening the three smaller bolts that hold the backing plate to the carb. Loosen each screw a little at the time because they are designed not to simply screw out. Once you get them all loose, the backing plate will come off.
Now, take the fuel hose off and there is a vacuum hose connected to the backside of the carb that you must disconnect. Now, grab the carb and wiggle it while pulling on it. It will come out of the seal on the intake. With the carb at this point, you can probably take the enricher cable out using a 14mm wrench. Once you get the cable out, you'll have to swap the spring and needle plunger from the cable to the new cable. Reinstall the new cable into the carb.
Replace the "seal" on the intake and spray a bit of silicone spray on the seal and carb to help you put the carb back in. Push the carb into the seal all the way. Reconnect the enricher cable into it's bolder on the other side of the bike. Reconnect the vacuum hose and the fuel line. Replace the air filter backing plate. At his point, check the throttle to make sure the throttle works like it should. If so, you can install the air filter and cover. Make sure the throttle works as it should.
