Question about Harley Davidson Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Desktop Telephone
We need the exact point gap and how to time a pan head engine. thought gap is .016 of inch but not sure.
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.
