.017 run out on the sprocket shaft is a discard even by Harley's standards. They allow up to .012. Most crank shops want less than .002.
So if you run it like that, how long before its .021?I'm sorry I mis-typed the number we are a little under the 2 on the dial indicator. The only thing I see wrong with these wheels is the side to side free-play is exactly .020 and the book says anything over .020.
Take them apart and throw the seals away. Keep the valves in order so they go back in the same hole.So at this point since I have new valves,seals, etc in the heads. What is the best way for me to clean them without drying the seals out or whatever.
So on the crank you have a washer, the spacer and then the rotor? And you measured the spacer and compared it to the old one?I ordered the new crank. Something is going on one way or the other and it all comes down to the crank. Every single witness mark or whatever could have been caused by debris or crank. The oil analyst got with me today and said all looked normal for amount of time on bike and etc. but for some reason I find that hard to understand. I’ve been Cleaning sparkles for days. Plus the primary plug looked like it had Afro. One thing I’m not understanding is my alternator rotor has rubbed against the spacer and caused hell of a groove. I double and triple checked with all of you, with dealer, with book, everything is complete nothing missing and in order. The shaft comes out of case. Then the washer, then the spacer, then seal and that’s it. There’s nothing more to it. Some reason my rotor is spinning on the spacer and we’ll check it out and please tell me wha5 this could possibly be. First picture I’ve just set the spacer inside rotor so you would see what I’m saying

Brian, I just wanted to say that I admire your determination on this project. Most people wouldn't have the nerve to attempt a rebuild of this size. The only people who haven't made mistakes are the ones who have never tried to do anything difficult. You will be an expert at the end of this project and you will enjoy your ride because YOU fixed it.
Thank you. I can tell you one thing. I know every bolt and nut on this bike now. It’s been an adventure. Things are starting to work out much better this time around since I’ve done it all a couple of times now. At least now I understand why things go the way they do instead of just doing what the book says like before. Now I know why it says what it says and what each thing does. I appreciate your kind words. I hope you have a great week.Brian, I just wanted to say that I admire your determination on this project.

I never removed the washer only the spacer. The spacer is chamfered on both sides. It had to be the compensator. One of the springs actually separated. Other then that everything is exactly the same. The only item In There i replaced at that time was the nut.Looking at pictures of that part online, it looks like one side of the washer could have a chamfer on the inside on one side. If so, was it installed with the chamfer pointing the right direction? Just a guess and probably out in left field.
