Customer Question
It won't turn over...

It won't turn over. Getting a spark and all more so on the front head but won't turn ofer

Mechanic's Assistant: What's the make/model/year of your bike?

The fuel pump isn't making the nortmal noise that it makes every time .... 2010 harley dyna street bob

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you ever replaced the fuel pump, or is this the original?

I replaced it however it has started since

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '10 motorcycle?

Got my tank painted so had to send it in Fxdb street bob

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your bike yourself? What have you tried so far?

I checked the battery checked the plugs checked the fuses..... not sure what it could be..made sure all connectiosn are tight and good Getting spark. Have compression, but the fuel pump isn't making the sound that it has made the past 7 years I have owned the bike. I hit run and usually I hear the fuel pump engage, however this time, for the first time , I am not, so I think it has something to do with that So I changed the fuse Just in case to no avail

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Just what I just typed above cause I'm almost at a loss here.... I'm no mechanic I just have been working on my bikes for years
