SOURCE: replace rear rocker box gasket

Replacing the silicone gaskets between the rocker box cover is not that difficult. Simply take the bolts out and lift the cover off, replace the gasket, put the cover back on with the bolts loose and line them up correctly. Then tighten the bolts to about 80 - 100 inch pounds of torque.

If the leak is coming from below the lower rocker plate where it mates with the head, this is a bit more difficult and I'd suggest taking the bike to a repair shop. However, if you'ver mechanically inclined and have the tools, even that is a job that can be done by an amateur mechanic. If this is the case, please ro-post and I'll tell you step by step what you need to do to replace the gaskets beneath the lower rocker plate.

Good Luck
Steve

It sounds like you might have some wear in the rocker arm bushings and the shafts. This is a bit unusual for 22K miles but I have heard them have a slight ticking noise before. It's not anything to really worry about unless it really loud. If this is the case, you can pull the rocker plates off and have the bushings replaced. This is not something that I would consider a "user replaceable part". The old bushings must be pressed out, the new ones pressed in, and then reamed to size on the new shafts. This is a job for a properly equipped shop.

Now, to save money, you can pull the rocker plates off and reinstall them yourself. It's not difficult to do, you just need decent torque wrench so that you don't strip a bolt.

Hi Anonymous, roll the engine over untill all pushrods are as low as possible, torque rocker boxes in a criss cross pattern in 5 lb. increments, manually roll over engine slowly without spark plugs before firing to make sure all the children have enough room to play. Good luck

I need to change out bad pushrod rings on my 1989 sportster 1200, and i need detailed step by step directions, as i am ignorant in this area...


Hi, Peter you have 2 options method A use a set of bolt cutters to cut out the stock pushrods and replace them with adjustable aftermarket taperlites and new o-rings or method B remove the rocker boxes and stock pushrods replace the o-rings and rocker box gaskets, I prefer method A because it is faster and you can remove the adjustable push rods to do hydraulic lifter or cam work without taking off the rocker boxes the downside is the expense of the adjustable push rods and I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Harley Davidson but despair not for a mere $7 you can download another one.

Cam gears pulled out when changing gear box gasket trouble reinstalling due to tappets line cams up but front exhaust to tight to install


I'd be interested in knowing how the cam chest cover cam off changing a gear box gasket but.

In order to get the cams back in and to insure their proper timing, I'd put the rocker arms out. I'd pull them all out but you're free to do whatever you wish. Remove the top and middle rocker cover on the front clinder. Remove the large bolt that hold the lower plate and the rocker arm for the front cylinder in. Tap the rocker arm shaft out of the rocker arm and remove the rocker arm. You can then get your cam into position. Now, to get rocker shaft back in, rotate the engine until the front exhaust cam has the valve in it's closed position. Reinstall the rocker arm and shaft and torque the bolt to 25 foot pounds. Reassemble the upper and middle rocker box covers.

After riding for awhile and I turn off the bike I get drips of oil coming out of the air cleaner .


It depends on the year model of your bike. This thread says your bike is a 01 FXDXT Super Glide. Since 1994, all Harley engines have been what we call "head breathers". The crankcase ventilation is done through ports in the heads unlike previous years where the engine breathed thorough a port in the lower crankcase. In each version, there are baffles to seperate the oil mist from the air. The later version "Head breathers" were better at this than the earlier versions. Still some oil is blown into the air cleaner and makes the removal and cleaning of the inside of the air filter necessary.

However if there is too much oil building up too quickly, in the head breather models there are small "umbrella" valves in the center part of the rocker box covers that over time become brittle due to head. It's not very difficult to take the top off the rocker box cover and replace these umbrellas if you have the proper tools and know how.

On the twin cam engines, there are six bolts holding the top plate on the rocker box cover. Remove these six bolts and the top plate and the center plate come off the head. The umbrella valve is in the center part. Simply remove the old umbrella and pull in the new on in the proper direction. Replace the rocker box covers with new gaskets.
