Technical Resource Discussion / Re: Primary Drive Compensators
« Last post by blackheart on December 12, 2017, 07:06:22 pm »
So I followed up this Monday and took a compesator assembly off an 08 HD TC96 & shot it for nominal alloy composition.  All three pieces came back as 8620 or some close cousin such as 8740.  This is a classic gear and shaft alloy.  I dont know the carbon content so it could be a higher carbon alloy which would not require carburizing to develop case harness upon a typical heat treatment.

Whats interesting is this compensator had 95000 miles on it and really only needed the spring pack shimmed as they had lost their preload.  The ramps looked perfect.

The big Auction! Excelsior-Henderson is up for grabs, not to mention a lot of cool bikes including a dozen or so Super-X motorcycles. Come to fabulous Las Vegas, the auction is at the South Point Hotel, January 21st thru January 27th. Rumor is there will be a block of rooms reserved at the South Point for Xers to stay in. Perhaps the admin can comment more on this as the date approaches. Those coming to Vegas, anticipate 60ish weather.....good for riding!

I'll try to do a PMI on the one that I took out of my 08 FLTR.

That ramp and sprocket look like an investment casting then sprocket is finished machine.  FYI, investment castings can be pretty good stuff, cast out of such alloy as 8620.  Comp cams for years has cast rockers this way.  It could also be powered metallurgy which is also very good as they are post forged to get density (voids out) up.  Modern automobile connecting rods are made this way.

They wouldn't make of stainless.  Unless it is a precipitation hardening stainless, such as 17-4PH, austenitic stainless steels cannot be hardened, they are soft and strengths are low.  They can be work hardened but not heat treated to make hard.

I'd bet my life they are made of some ferritic steel, alloy of course.

by spray...
I mean carb cleaner, or what ever your choice is to help clean them out as you test....

for further details on how to do this.....

take some caution, as to your fluid of choice.... could be flammable issue depending on fluid (sparks and 12volts)

I put 12volts to them and spray thru.....
Then you can do again when wired to plug...
Have some one crank, and someone spray..
Messy, but quick..

Tank is clean and new gas. Replaced fuel line with new hose and totally cleaned fuel rail. I am replacing the injector seals and have cleaned all of the other sensors as well. I wll go through the entire process again when I replace the seals.
What is the Voltage supposed to be from the connectors? what's the best way t test them?

Welcome to the community!!
I'll go this way first..
Did you clean the tank real good? The OEM liner does not hold up to ethanol very well at all. Also if it sat with ethsnol in it that long, it will stratify and cause rust issues.
Did you put a new fuel line on or clean it. This also goes for the fuel rail.
If you didn't do any of this, it's very possible you just plugged up the injectors again.
Next would be to test the injectors, and test the electrical connection from the computer while cranking...
Do all this, come on back.... And we'll go further
