Question about Health & Beauty
New throttle pot installed 3 months ago. I let it sit all night. It moved for about 3 minutes, then nothing. I am disabled, can’t walk and live alone
Go to the system preferences and look at the universal access, check to see if you have turned on the "seeing" section, if so turn it off, this might be the source of the problem

Hi an welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
What has happened is that when the system cavitated the engine drew debris into the Jet orifice in bottom of the carb. You will have to remove the float bowl by removing the 4 mounting scres and the bowl nut.
Once you have the bowl off the Jet / Orifice is located in the very bottom of the carb. It will be recessed about 3/8 inch inside the ventrui. It is BRASS. It can be removed with a flat bladed screwdriver. When you get the jet out hold it up to the light. You should see a pinhole in it. No light.. JET is clogged. Just clean it and reinstall it.
After you have cleaned the jet... take a l;ook at the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut assy that must also be clear. Before you re-install the float bowl turn on the gas and gently lift the float \ensuring that fuel flow stops. Then as you let the float down it should pass fuel. If you do not have feul flow at this point then check the gas tank outlet for obstructions. Once you have established fuel flow reinstall the float bowl, nut and mounting screws.
It should work just fine after this.
A word to the wise.... DO NOT disconnect any linkages unless you have to...! Take a digital picture of the link connections BEFORE you remove them. Thrust me you will be glad you did!
Thanks for using FixYa,

The oil may not be coming out of the throttle body. The crankcase breather system is actually in the rocker box covers. Yes, there is a breather gear in the crankcase but that is for the oil return to the oil pump.
The crankcase ventilation system vents crankcase pressure into the air cleaner as required by the EPA. The purpose is to route oil mist contained in the crankcase ari that is vented into the engine to be burned. There are 'umbrella valves" in the center section of the rocker boxes. Over time, the heat makes these pieces get hard and brittle since they are made of a type of rubber. When this happens, they don't stop the oil mist as well as they used to. The oil mist is blown into the air filter where it coaleses into drops of oil. This is normal for any Harley due to their engine design.
But, if it's too bad, I'd suggest replacing the umbrella valves. Simply remove the top and center section of the rocker boxes by removing the six bolts that hold the parts on the top of each cylinder. Replace the umbrella and the edge gaskets and replace the covers. Torque the bolts to 10-13 foot pounds.
