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 years of the twin 88 cam chain problems were fixed


The upgraded cam chain tension system came out in 2006
for Dynas and 2007 for other models. Those bikes through
2008 had the new six speed that had its own problems not
to mention ratios that were too high geared. In 2009 HD
got the FLH frame redesigned and a good six speed trans
but I never like ANYTHING from HD their first year so I'd
go shopping for 2010 models and up. IMHO.

I want to change the timing belt on my 2003 Kia Rio Cinco but I can't find any info. I hate to start the project without some basic guidelines from someone that has done the job. I'm an experienced auto...


If it is the single overhead cam engine,it's pretty straight forward-Crank-tensioner- cam.The tensioner is a simple slide-to-tension type.You will need to take off the top engine mount for access(i just supported the engine with a jack)If it's a twin cam?Sorry don't know as mine is single cam.(obviously all air con belts,altenator belt etc have to be removed first)
