This is strange. My first question is just how big is this cooler on the voltage regulator? It has to be some aftermarket addition because Harley does not put coolers on the regulators, the regulators are designed with cooling fins on them. Secondly, has any modifications been made to the original front end or fender? The Super Glide came with the same front end as a Sportster for all practical purposes. Lastly, with the engine off and the transmission in neutral. Hold the front brake and rock the bike forward and backwards. Feel for any looseness in the neck bearings or anywhere else in the front end. Also, look for cracks in the triple trees. If you feel it "klunking", the cause needs to be found and corrected immediately. This could be a very dangerous situation. Personally, I would not ride the bike until I made certain that the bike was safe to ride.

Good Luck

After i changed my brake caliper my brakes in the front passenger side is steel rubing

Time to take it into a mechanic. If you have changed the rotor, brake pads, and calipers and you are still getting a smoking, it might be something in the actual brake lines. Get it to a certified mechanic fast.-------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have to put it a new voltage regulator on a 1986 Chrysler LeBaron, where is the voltage regulator located?

If the engine is the 2.6L the regulator is built into the alternator and is not serviceable. If the engine is a 2.2L or 2.5L then there may be a seperate regulator and it will be mounted to one of the inner fenders. Please rate this solution.

Headlight out, driving lights out, fog lights out... but directional front and rear lights work fine as does the brake light work fine. there just does'nt seem to be any electric going to those lights up...

ok could be a couple things here. Im having a memory issue at the moment so first Im gonna tell ya to check the light on your front fender if it has one?
If so and that light is out as well then run your fingers up the inside of the front fender on the right side of the tire. Have the wires from the fender tip light been rubbing on the tire and now are bare and shorted out?
Second at least if the fender tip light wires are ok or you dont have a fender tip light would be to simply click your hi/low beam light switch. Do you have a high beam and just not a low beam? If so its the bulb in the headlight because its blown out on the low beam side. Replace the headlight and then youll have your passing lamps and your fog lamps back as well since those circuits all get there power from the low beam circuit of the headlight. Good luck and let me know what you find.

Where is voltage regulator located and is it easy to replace , thanks

The previous solution is incorrect. If he has an '88 land cruiser, it is an FJ62 model and therefor has in internal voltage regulator that will require you to take out the alternator to access it. Once the alternator is out, remove the back housing, then the remove the five screws that hold the regulator in place. It looks like the picture I have linked up. Good luck.

I own a 05 superglide with a 39mm narrow glide front end. I want to convert it to the newer 49mm front end using an 06 superglide front end. Are the frame necks the same, or did Harley-Davidson incorporate...

Go to a dealer and look up the part numbers for the frame on 05 and 06 fxd models.If they are the same you are in luck.The front brake hose may be a problem so check that also.
