    Re: Just bought a 62 Duo Glide

    I've got both the top two books, excellent reading but I did find a omission which could catch you out in the Clymer manual.Mine is from the third printing of October 1995, later ones may have been corrected.

    On page 272 under the heading....".Seal Replacement With The H-D Tool" it covers removing the counter shaft (gearbox) sprocket as described in Chapter Five. I never did find it in chapter five but it is covered a couple of pages earlier near the top of page 270.
    The catch you out bit is that it does not say that this is a Left Hand Thread and you don't want to be wacking it(technical term for us boys with big hammers) in the wrong direction.

    It's definitely a left hand thread because I'v changed my sprocket before, it says so in my genuine H-D manual and on the"" Custom Chrome duo seal mainshaft nut with seal" instructions .Mind you the Clymer says the sprocket is on the counter shaft and Custom Chrome say mainshaft so take your pick

    Hope this helps somebody

    Ron.

    If you have more than one manual read them all before employing the big hammer, or any other form of brute force.

    The brake hose eventually arrived from W&W. So that’s now fitted, clutch is sorted and there’s new springs on the seat post. Started the bike up after a break of a couple of weeks and it’s now running like a pig. It’s sat in the garage, the engine untouched and now it won’t run right. It pops, it farts, there’s no power, I want to cry. It’s driving me mad. It seams to be one thing after another.
    Even had a totally new one, while the engine was running a strange gurgling noise could be heard coming from the tank. When the left hand cap was removed and the fuel knob was up, a stream of bubbles were coming up in the tank. Shut the fuel off or remove the right hand cap and it stopped, bizarre.
    Think I’ll get a twin cam.

    I think it was trying to tell you something. You may have had an air block, or the breather cap might have got blocked/stuck. I don't know much about the old ones, but I'm sure one of the fuel caps will have a breather.

    ironing out all them problems and gremlins is testing for sure.
    just gotta hang in there and sort it, problem by problem.

    no idea about those early fuel taps.
    bad running, does it start easy enough, just poor under load? condesor/coil is text-book for that.
    is it 'tendered'? battery voltage? standing in the cold for a while, low volts weak spark etc.
    eliminate air leaks/lean running.
    etc, etc, process of elimination blah blah.
    keep at it.
    love those duos.

    No worries, I was just venting. Fortunately this isn’t my first old vehicle. We’ll get there in time, but I gotta say thanks to everyone for the help.

    Picture the scene, a community hall, a bunch of men sat round in a circle, one stands up nervously and says "I am Gary and I have a Panhead" - the others clap and smile knowingly....
