Being a visual learner myself as most men are, I thought I would post up the install of the S&S .585 cam in my K9. Begin by raising the rear wheel off the ground so that you can rotate the wheel later on, remove the seat, the plugs, side covers, air filter and the exhaust. Remove the upper pushrod covers by inserting a flat blade screwdriver into the slot while at the same time pulling down on the spring loaded collar. Lift the cover by pulling it out toward you and then down. I made up 4 paper-clip retainers to hold up the pushrod tubes. Pull up on the lower pushrod tube and it will collapse upon itself, now slip the open end of the paper clip on the edge of the tube to hold it up out of your way. I used a Carbide tipped pen to mark the pushrods so that I could count the rotations later during the valve adjustment. Now while holding the lower most nut, loosen the lock nut by turning it counter-clockwise and collapse the pushrod. Repeat on the other 3 rods. Now a little fabrication of a "funnel" using aluminum foil and painters tape will save you a big mess later. I cut open a old jug for a oil trap to funnel into. Remove all the bolts in the cam-cover and insert 2 larger bolts in the threaded holes and break the seal to remove the cover. Rotate the rear tire to align the cam alignment dots. Remove the stock cam and inspect the bearing in the rear of the case. Make sure that it is a bearing with multiple needle bearings(Torrington Bearing). If not, it must be replaced. If showing wear it must be replaced. I measured my original cam and the new cam and they were the same length so I used the original shim on the new cam. Insert the cam into the case making sure to align the timing marks(one mark is to the left and the other is on the groove with the lower timing mark. Replace the cam cover with a new gasket and torque the bolts to 120 inch pounds. Begin the pushrod adjustment as laid out in other posts, while waiting for the first lifter to bleed down, remove the exhaust gaskets. Insert new gaskets into the gasket pockets. After adjusting all 4 pushrods, reinstall the exhaust, side covers, plugs, air filter and its cover, and the seat. Now get out on the road and enjoy the fruit of your labor.
