If the pin held it in place, the hole in the case would be the same size.

Is the overall consensus at this point that this random pin really couldn't have gotten loose from a fully assembled engine? This is my understanding right now; that A.) it is a transmission bearing alignment pin, and B.) it's not possible for one to come out except when the case halves are NOT bolted together. Which means C.) the pin has been hiding in a crevis in this engine since it was assembled at the factory. Are the gurus of this engine in agreement with that?

Rick (their V-Rod guy) at Cajun HD in Lafayette, LA says that that pin IS a transmission bearing alignment pin.

1. There is no way this pin fell from it's home. If the pin gored it's way out through the aluminum you would have a coffee cup full of material in your oil. Aluminum case shavings and steel bearing surface.

2. There is no way that this pin has anything to do with oil. The shot of the case is not the 1/2 with the pin hole.

3. I am guessing that this pin is to keep the bearing from spinning. Being round I don't think it matters how it goes in.

4. I had to pry it out with a pair of dykes. I don't think it "fell" out. I ordered replacement bearings and they came with the pin in them. IF the guy that inserts the pin is the same guy that assembles the shaft, I doubt he is the same guy that sticks it in the engine. And if he is the same dude....I doubt he does all 3 at the same station.

5. It is entirely possible that HD uses the same pin elsewhere...

6. I know nothing, I am just basing this on my experience rebuilding my own tranny.

Maybe the pin is to ensure that the shaft assembly guy does not put the bearing on backwards. The smaller bearing has a seal on one side. Putting it in backwards would not only make your bike run in reverse, but may starve the bearing of oil.

So it basically locates the bearing for assembly? Providing the bearing was positioned correctly at the time of assembly then no biggy that the pin's gone now right? If the bearing was put in wrong when it was built then the bearing should have burned up long ago?

Somebody just tell me "don't mean nothin' brother, not a thing". So I can forget about the spare parts in my oil pan please.

In my humble opinion, your OK, keep riding it & stop worrying.

IMHO it probably is not the pin out of one of your bearings, it's a extra pin that got dropped in the case at assembly. If I'm right you have absolutely nothing to worry about.

Now go back to chasing crazy chicks.

Exclamation Roll Pin in Oil Pan

All,

I'm new here but have a 2007 Night Rod. I know it's been several years since this posting but was changing my oil over this last weekend and found the exact same thing, a very small roll pin on the drain plug magnet. I did a search on the issue and wound up here. It doesn't seem to have caused any problem.
