Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
Have a 79 harley fxef, just rebuilt. Changed out the starter, selanoid, relay add electronic ignition. As per the books it should start but now joy as of yet, any ideas
Electronic ignition on a 79'? you got some mods? check for spark at the plug; check for fuel; if you got fuel/air and spark physics mandates that you will have combustion so summpin aint quite thur. stop have a coldy enjoy the way it looks for a night and start with a not so fresh mind tomorrow. oh yeah you said just rebuilt. did you paint the frame while the motor was gettin done? if you left the paint on your motor mounts on the frame BINGO! the frame to motor bolt down spot just happens to be the ground pathway for yer ignition on a 79' shovel. you can show voltage potential all day but if there isnt a ground pathway then it's only potential and not current so scuff the paint off the mount positions and try again. if this is what happened don't freak just loosen everything up lift the motor just a bit and run some emery cloth through the space. let me know if you need more details.
