Yea I have the ev46, The noise is hard to pin point, Like I said I had an Independent Mechanic shop put the stethescope on it and he said it was in the rocker boxes, another said my Primary, and an old friend said the bottom end. It is more like a clatter as opposed to a tick. The more I think about it the more I am leaning towards the pushrod adjustment. I won't be Home till Wednesday, will preobably work on it Thursday. I will keep ya'll posted!! Thanks

Hi!! I adjusted the pushrods as per ya'lls guidance and I have to tell you I hear a very noticable difference. I have more confidence now riding it!! I even washed her up and put a lil lipstick on the old Hog!! Brought back a good feeling and now i will focus on some dress-up and I will put a metal breather in the cam chest here shortly, I will let ya'll know what I got going on, cause I'm gone to need some guidance when I try and get the sound system up, but that may be a while, Again Thanks for the help !!!!! HAPPY MARDI GRAS!!!!!!

Here is a follow up, after a few months of riding it, I found my noise. It was coming from the starter clutch. It was giving me problems back then like not engageing all the way. Well it finally went out completely. I installed a new clutch and the noise is gone completely. i learned a lesson from this and that is, don't be too quick to throw a bunch of parts and money at something that is not really a problem. Ride that mutha and the ugly beast will show it's face eventually!! Thanks Ya'll!!

We recently had a 1993 FLHS here, with only 17,800 miles on it, that had a noise that puzzled us momentarily.
Turned out to be the wrist pin bushing/pin fitment on the female(rear) rod.
Removed/installed/sized new bushing, and is back in service.
