DESCRIPTION: The Edelbrock Performer™ Cylinder Heads are designed for street high performance use, and are interchangeable with stock HarleyDavidson® cylinder heads on the Evolution® “Big Twin” engines. Edelbrock Performer™ heads can be used with unmodified, stock pistons and the
stock valve train with cam lifts up to .580" for bolt-on performance. These heads make excellent power increases in the stock RPM range of the HarleyDavidson® Big Twin® engine (idle to 5500 rpm). Cam lifts higher than .580" or engine speeds higher than 5500 rpm will require different
valve springs and other valve train modifications - please consult a qualified performance mechanic. These heads will work with bore
sizes up to 3-13/16" and feature a rectangular shaped intake port for a noticeable increase in air flow. This .125" raised rectangular intake port also
helps to increase the velocity of the incoming air for more power. Edelbrock intake manifolds must be used with these heads due to the unique
port shape (see application chart below). The dual-quench combustion chamber features a revolutionary new design that directs the air/fuel mixture
into a tumbling and swirling motion for a better mix and more efficient combustion. The 72cc combustion chamber increases the compression ratio
to 9.5:1 for more power. The “D” shaped exhaust port provides a larger area for increased flow, and was designed to create a mis-match between
the exhaust pipe and the exit which reduces power-robbing exhaust reversion. Performer™ heads fit 1984 and later Evolution® "Big Twin" engines.
They are machined with 1992 and later crankcase breather holes, and include block-off plugs for use on 1984-1991 engines. Performer™ cylinder
heads are assembled with stainless steel valves (1.850" intake and 1.610" exhaust), ductile iron valve seats and guides, 1.460" O.D. heavy-duty valve
springs, teflon valve stem seals, and machined valve spring retainers and locks. They are cast out of 356 aluminum and heat treated to T-6 specs.

IMPORTANT NOTES BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION
•
It is recommended that the installation of Performer cylinder heads be performed by a qualified engine builder with experience in high performance
or racing modifications to Harley-Davidson® engines.
•
If you are using any cam other than stock or Edelbrock Performer-Plus cam #1740, it is mandatory that valve-to-valve clearance
is checked to determine if these heads are compatible with the camshaft you intend to run. See Page 2.

CHECKING VALVE-TO-VALVE CLEARANCE
1.
2.
3.
4.
Before installing heads on engine, remove valve springs, retainers
and locks from one head. Leave the valve seals on to hold the
valves in position during the clearance check.
Use a 6" caliper to measure valve tip height from the valve spring
pocket.
Find the cam manufacturer’s "Valve lift at Top Dead Center" specs
and subtract this dimension from the valve tip height you measured
in step 2.
Using the calipers to check the new valve tip height, open the valve
by the amount calculated in step 3.
5.
6.
Repeat this process for the other valve. Note that intake and
exhaust "Valve lift at Top Dead Center" dimensions are usually
different.
With both intake and exhaust valves open to the correct
specifications, use a .060" feeler gauge to check clearance between
the valve heads. If less than .060" clearance exists, you run the risk
of valves hitting during engine operation, voiding any warranty on
these cylinder heads. If there is less than .060" clearance, select
another cam for your engine.

INSTALLATION PROCEDURE
HEAD GASKETS
You must use the correct head gaskets to achieve a 9.5:1
compression ratio for best power. Thicker gaskets will lower
compression and power, and thinner gaskets will raise compression
higher than advisable for use with today's unleaded pump gasoline.
1.
2.
Use Edelbrock gasket set #1640 for 1984-91 or #1641 for
1992 and later engines. This set includes the proper thickness
head gaskets (.045") and the special intake manifold gaskets
required for these cylinder heads.
You may use standard Harley-Davidson® head gaskets, if desired.
They vary in thickness, so it is advisable to measure your gasket
before use (See Figure 5). Recommended thickness is .045".
Figure 6 - Cleaning Gasket Surfaces
CAUTION
If you use copper head gaskets, be aware that they
must be properly annealed prior to installation. Even
if gaskets were annealed when new, copper can reharden during storage. Failure to anneal before
installation may lead to head gasket failure.

CYLINDER HEAD INSTALLATION
CAUTION
Install new O-rings over the cylinder dowels before
installing the head gasket. Install the O-rings first to
ensure alignment of the head gasket and prevent
gasket leaks.
CAUTION
Use only original equipment specification head bolts
and other hardware. All original hardware is hardened
grade 8 material, which is required for proper
performance of these parts.
1.
2.
3
Be sure the gasket surfaces and stud holes are clean and dry (See
Figure 6). Place new O-rings (13) on the cylinders and position the
head gaskets on the inserts (13) (See Figure 7).
Dip the head bolt threads and bottom face of bolt head in oil; then
wipe off any excess. Install the head bolts (1 and 2, Figure 4) finger
tight.

Cylinder Head bolt torque sequence (See Figure 8):
The procedure for tightening the head bolts is extremely critical; not
only to prevent gasket leaks, but to prevent stud failure and heads
and cylinders distortion.
CAUTION
Be sure you thoroughly clean and lubricate the
cylinder head bolts before tightening to the correct
torque. Friction because of dirt or grime will cause
the torque wrench readings to be incorrect. Clean
and lubricate the threads with engine oil and screw
the bolts onto the crankcase studs by hand to be sure
there is no friction.

CAUTION
Use only original equipment head bolts and studs
for your year vehicle to ensure proper torque and
head gasket life.

PUSH ROD INSTALLATION
NOTE: There is one length push rod for each of four
locations (See Figure 10). Be sure to color match each
push rod to its correct valve and cam lobe; purple to rear
exhaust; blue to rear intake; yellow to front intake; and green
to front exhaust.
See Figure 8. With a torque wrench, start at the
cylinder head bolt numbered "1" and tighten to 7-9
ft./lbs. Then tighten "2", "3", and "4" in order to 7-9
ft./lbs.
Following the torque sequence, tighten each bolt to
15-17 ft./lbs.
Following the torque sequence, tighten each bolt to
24-26 ft./lbs.
CAUTION
The cylinder head bolts are not to be checked
for tightness after final torquing at reassembly
is completed. Retightening the bolts to
specified torque at regular intervals will place
undue stress on bolts and bolt anchoring
threads.

ft./lbs.
Following the torque sequence, tighten each bolt to
12-14 ft./lbs.
See Figure 9. Mark a line on the cylinder head and
a corresponding line on the head of the cylinder head
bolt as shown in View A. Following the same
sequence 1, 2, 3, then 4, turn each bolt, one at a time
one quarter turn (90°) using the marks as a guide.
When marks are all positioned, as in View B, the
procedure is completed.

CAUTION
Do not turn engine over until push rods spin freely.
Damage could occur to valves.
NOTE: If the original push rods are being installed, be sure
you do not turn them end for end from their original position
because they have worn into their mating components.

Install the middle (4) and top (3) rocker arm covers, using new
gaskets and new fiber seals. The fiber seals must be under the steel
washers. Be sure the middle cover section is spaced evenly on all
sides before tightening the cover screws. Tighten the screws to 1013 ft./lbs. following a crisscross pattern. If a torque wrench cannot
be used, tighten securely by hand.
Install intake manifold according to the instructions provided with
the Edelbrock intake manifold.
Install the carburetor, V.O.E.S. and ignition components.
Reassemble all components removed during disassembly, connect
battery cables, and re-fuel gasoline tank.
