Re: Harley 3 speed reverse transmission

It's all good Dave.

Re: Knuckle compression

Hey Keith,

Welcome to The Journal! You say you took the cam chest cover off and a gear (or two?)came off with the cover. Do you take the cover off often? do you know which gears came off?

Fully compressed lifter?

Hello all,

Went to adjust the pushrods on my '74 shovel and the manual says to run the pushrod down till the lifter is completely compressed. What exactly does that mean?They're hydraulic lifters.

Re: Knucklehead VIN confusion

Like Gov pointed out there are a number of possibilities. My vin only has 4 numbers.

Speeding big twin seems to be an authority on these things so it'll be interesting to see how it sorts out.
