This is my first time adjusting pushrods. When I bought the bike the cams and adjustable
pushrods were already in the bike 2005 flht. I'm pretty sure they are S&S lifters and pushrods.
They do not look like HD stock lifters and look identical to another set of S&S lifters I have.
I adjusted the PR
(32tpi) per the S&S instructions. The oil in the Lifter never bled down as per instructions
this would (could) mean that they are Lifters with limiters in them. So this is where
the question is. The instructions say to collapse the pushrod till you can spin the PR
the valve to fully seat then one more turn PR
will remain sloppy till lifters pump back up.
After I did this,my lifters seem to expand taking the play out and the PR
is tight agin.
Is there a small window that you have to adjust the PR
on lifters that have the limiters.
I thought that the lifter was supposed to be partially collapsed and that oil pressure kept
the lifter solid enough to open the valve when the motor was running.
Seems that the lifter plunger has come back up to the retaining clip I'm guessing its
the spring in the lifter.
Thanks for reading and Happy Thanksgiving
