Did you turn your engine to place back your cams? If not, your engine is not time correctly. The key ways on the pinion gear has to be aligned with number two cam center line; at eleven hour.

Please get a manual if you don’t have one already. Make your cams look exactly like this. Start with getting your pinion gear in the right spot.



Then make sure pushrods are in the right spot.

Jj5685,

If you're still listening, so are we.
We'll help as best we can but we need you to stay with us.
There is no shame in screwing up. We've all done it.
I'm interested first in in checking the primary off the list.
I wouldn't fire it back up until you check back in.

Jj, you really should have read up on the manual first before getting the tools out.
That said, there is no need to remove the heads to service pushrods.
Do you have the actual harley manual?
Cams must be installed correctly first, then the side cover goes on, then the pushrods.
Head torque is very important during assembly.

+1, On an EVO you need to remove the rocker box first to service the cams.
