I think n2sport owns a harley so maybe he can offer some insight. The best I can offer is that matter cannot occupy the same space at the same time, in the same sense. My guess is you have a pin or something not lining up well enough, and it's stopping the whole endeavor.


How's my posting? Please direct all concerns and inquiries to DCSBN's chief content manager, Hollywood, via PM.

no it is the lifter to the top of the engine that is getting in the way, I have taken the gear out of the cover and I am trying to put it in but the lifter is getting in the way. I may end up having to take the top of the engine off just to get the gear back in.

Now I am having other problems, I know the pushrod has to come out of the engine so I can get the gear back in but I am not sure what direction they are supposed to be in relation to the other gears. I know that when the exhaust valve is closed the intake valves should be opening. Am I correct in thinking that the cam gears on the back side of the engine should be about 180 degrees from the cam gears on the front of the engine?

You need the manual to do this. It has a specific way to line up the cam gears and also the torque specs on the head for when you release the rocker arms. If you screw it up get ready to buy a motor.

I know the torque specs on the head, and I have looked up the cam gear specs, the only thing is that the manual says that none of the valves will be completely closed at any given moment, as in the intake and the exhaust valves will be open simultaneously for a fraction of a second while the motor is in rotation, and I am supposed to measure the distance of travel while the motor is being turned manually. The only problem is that there is no easy way to do this, not happy, I shouldn't have had to deal with this because the part I was replacing just needed two rivets drilled out......

So what are you asking for? You say you know what your doing yet you do not know the gear set up? The gears have dots on them that need to be in a specific place to allow the lifters/push rods and valves to be in the right timing. Are you just bitching or what do you really need help with? The manual walks you right though this.

Easier is not really the best method with engine work.

Follow the service manual, but google the shiz out of it with the word "forum". You'll get hits from peeps on HD forums looking having the same problem...

Those service manuals can be tricky
