Screww holding valve cover on '02 Gl1800

Post by Jon Bopp » Sun Apr 04, 2010 12:49 pm

I accidently removed one upper bolt cap for what I believe is the valve cover(one of the 3 bolts on the upper cover on the upper side of the engine above the access cover for the spark plugs. I can't seem to get it back in as the bolt is about 2.5inches long and I can't get the inner end to mate with the inner threads. THe Cap on the end of this bolt is for an allen wrench. Any advice on how to line this up so it will go back in and catch the threads? Jon

Did you actually pull on the cover after you removed the bolt? There is a little gasket behind the cover, and if its a little out of place, it can bind up behind the cover and keep you from getting the bolt may need to remove the other two bolts and reseat the rubber gasket.
