Ok, Went and did a check over and called the HD Guy to see just what He did.

All He did was try a Compression test but the engine would't turn over. So He checked the water and oil and seen there was some mixture there. That was all.
He thinks sombody ran it without oil or water and froze something up.

I put a good battery in and He's right it won't turn over plus I can only click the shift lever once down. Then back to Netural. No up shifter click. Clicked the Shifter down but can't get the rear wheel to turn. Something must be locked up.

Found these wires draging on the ground, The 3 yellow ones are cut. I found where they should be.





I hate to look anymore..........But Looks like just pull the engine and go from there.

the 3 yellow wires look like stator wires... try to pull the front stator cover and see if u can turn the motor backwards i know we are probbably delaying the inevitable and maybe just pull and admire would be the best bet all though it would be nise to turn the motor and see the operations of the cams ect...

Did you pull the left cover with the three screws? In the center is a 17mm crank bolt, normal rotation is counter clockwise.

Apparently the engine has been out and partialy tore down then slapped back together. Looks like the harley mechanic bit off more than he could chew. I would seriously consider buying a good used engine. Depending on your mechanical ability and parts needed to repair it might be your best bet.

The HD Guy didn't pull or take apart anything.
Like He said " I have enough HDs here to work on and don't need to or have the time to work on any Rice Burners". It had to happen before the lady got it.

That's My Luck.....If somebody Crapped on it, I'll be the one that winds up with it. But then that makes Me who I am.....The One who fixes what others give-up on.

That motor has been pulled, I can tell by the hose clamps, clutch cable routing and the wrench marks on the mount bolts.
Pull the motor and tear down and find out what happened then go from there.
