Drain the primary and remove the primary chaincase cover. There are 2 bolts with lockplates and washers thats hold the shoe. Remove them, install the new shoe, reinstall the 2 bolts. The lockplate is installed outside of the washers. Thats it

    I wouldnt attempt this without a shop manual. The procedure is too complex to describe here, you will also need a cam chain tensioner unloader part # (HD-42313). Good luck

Is your bike STOCK?? Have the Cams been changed? Do you have Stock Cam CHAINS & TENSIONERS, or is it updated to GEAR DRIVEN Cams? Either way, you have a Cam and or Lifter Problem, and if you are not a Harley Mechanic with access to Shop type tools and Equipment, then I suggest you take you Harley to a reputable repair shop for diagnosis and repair. DO NOT CONTINUE TO RIDE WITH THIS PROBLEM, IT WILL NOT FIX ITSELF and will only cause you MORE EXPENSIVE DAMAGE. Good Luck! -Dr.Mark

WHAT KIND OF CRANKING PRESSURE DO YOU HAVE? MORE THAN LIKELY, YOU WILL NEED COMPRESSION RELEASES IF YOU ARE NOT RUNNING A STOCK MOTOR. CHANGING YOUR RING GEAR WILL ALSO HELP A LOT. PRIMO RIVERA AND I'M SURE OTHERS HAVE THE RING GEAR YOU NEED. IT HAS LESS TEETH THAN THE STOCK RING GEAR. I RUN A 116'' S&S TWIN CAM WITH 210 LBS CRANKING PRESSURE. I HAVE AN ODDESY 925 CRANKING AMP BATTERY WITH S&S COMPRESSION RELEASES AND THE PRIMO RING GEAR. NO MORE PROBLEMS. PHONE NUMBER, 714-624-1915 NAME'S JAN.

Oil change


You dont say what model bike BUT .... if its an evo.... you have to drain the oil out from the oil tank. Theres an oil drain hose. It doesnt drain thru the engine. If its a twin cam it does...Maybe you were low on oil ? Theres also oil in the filter. A quart might be about it in that case

If you have chain Tensioners then you have a Twin cam. This is NOT a job for an amature. Its necessary to take out Push rods which means remove heads or cut your pushrods and reinstall adjustables. You need to take out your cam plate,re align oil pump..Its not a simple job for a novice. If you have noise they have already exploded or are about to. Do not ride your bike..those plastic pieces can get sucked into the oil pump and do major damage. I told that to a customer that was going on a trip he did not heed warning. He got 75 miles they exploded and he bought a new motor.

Some of us here do work on Harley's. You are correct on the gap, and here's enough to get started on the timing. Pull the spark plugs and set the point gap to .018 for 12volt systems, .022 for 6 volts, on the highest point of the point-cam lobe. Turn engine over until the front cyl point cam lobe (the small one) is coming around and getting ready to open the points. Remove the timing plug on the engine and gently turn the engine on the kickstarter until the timing mark appears in the hole. On most earlier big twins it should be a straight line, get it approx. in the center or slightly before.

2004 HD roadking, FI.


had the same issue with an early twin cam that belonged to a buddy. he had this wierd kinda intake thing that looked like the intake with the round flaps that you used to see on a hot rod back in the day. I don't think it did anything but look cool to him.
but anyway it was crazy hard to warm up when cold. if you are starting this bike in an ambient of 40f or less it will take some time to warm up. which I don't understand because the twin cam runs hot like 220 plus. give it extra time to warm up in cold weather. might be nothing wrong with the bike... I mean maybe what your up against isn't a breakdown of the machine but poor engineering (WHO SAID THAT?) anyhoo I've seen it too and everything was tip top far as the HD cronies said
