The bike won't start. The local HD mechanic said the ECM that powered the 96 inch motor won't work on the 110 inch motor. Instead of buying a new (or used) ECM and such ( new tank, fuel pump, etc.) that will power the 110 inch motor I'm looking into alternatives.Can't the carb from the 96" be used on the 110" ?
The bike is a 2006 FLHT base model Electra Glide. It came from the factory with a carburetor. I might be mistaken about it being a 96 inch motor from the factory. According to Wiki the 96 inch motor first came in the 2007 HDs. The motor has been replaced a few times. The one I just took out was a 96 inch motor with a carb. That was motor number 3 since I've owned it. I ordered a new (new to me) ECM. It should be here next week. That should do the trick. If not I'll cross that bridge when I get there.Wait a minute ... Your 96" was carbed but the new 110" is set up for EFI ? How did the 96" get carbed in the first place ? All 96" were EFI from the MoCo.
If the 96" was converted to carb the same convert should work with the 110".
There's only one sensor for the 96" and the 110" that is relevant, the CKP. The ECM for both carbed engines should work.
There are some other elements to the equation but if the 96" was already carbed the parts should cross over to the 110" engine.
OR am I missing something here ??? Maybe some more info on this engine swap ?
This! Give this a try! Don’t ask me how I know, but I’ve had the same issues you’re having minus the fire, be resolved by swapping plug wires on the coil.Got the plug wires on backwards, it happens ? Try switching them to see what happens, can't hurt anything.
