I just cranked for a second or two w/ plugs out to see what the jack shaft was doing. Is it common practice though to have to bore the spot for bushing in outer primary? There is a blind hole there but it seems too small for the bushing that was in the original cover. I'm gonna send this POS cover back to demons. I guess you get what you pay for. Any recommended sites for ordering a three hole outer primary cover for 2000+ softail?

Not sure about the tranny. PO installed this thing. With stock cover should I be able to press fit the bushing without modding the cover?

No, but it is usually the best place to find things.
I use it to find the items and then search the vendor direct online or use the best offer auctions.
I find a lot of people that use the "best offer" feature will drop their price.

As for the other place you mentioned, a simple internet search would have made you think twice.

Agreed. Got blinded by the thought of saving a little dough. Research came after injury. Lesson learned. Thanks all for the feedback

The stock cover comes with the bushing preinstalled, no need to hone it over size either unless something else got changed like the pinion shaft.
Go to the Ted's V-Twin website to check out primary covers, less expensive than the H-D parts counter.
What size is the long bolt that goes into the end of your pinion gear ? Just the bolt head. Is it a 5/16" hex ???

I'll check when I get off work. I'd say it looks like 1/2" but will check and reply tonight. Thanks for the site info

There were two different EVO starters, early and late model. The late model starter has the 5/16ths hex pinion jack shaft bolt, the early is 7/16ths hex I believe. The covers aren't interchangeable. You need the early cover for the early starter and vise versa. That might be your problem !

That makes sense. The 99-06 cover doesn't fit right and and the 95-98 looks like it will. The motor was put in in 2002 but that doesn't mean the starter wasn't an older model. Another question I have then is this; most of the outer primary covers I find online have a 5 hole derby. My original derby is 3. What if anything does 3 versus 5 hole say about the cover/motor/starter/clutch basket depth?
