Hallo again. I have another problem with my sporty.
I've bought a new pushrod kit to my 86-90 sporty 1220
(883 converted with WISECO dished pistons, OEM 883 heads and camshafts).
This Andrews pushrods are adjustible.
I have a problem with correct adjustment of this kit.
It's written on the package"3 to 4 turns" - set on the base part od camshaft.
OK. How many turns is the best for this old bike?
I saw on Youtube - TC88 - 20 flats (3 and 1/3 turns) is best. My bike is working not so good on this setting.
Anybody knows - how many turns is the best for 1987 sportster?

Same as the 88.---- 3.5 to 3.75 turns. Assuming they're 24 TPI

That sets the tappets to .0140" - .0150" deep in the .0200" lifter bore.
