If the Master Cylinder BORE size is the same as the bore size required for the caliper you want to replace it with, then YES, you can use your existing Master Cylinder.

You can find the drain plug , under the crank case, at the bottom, underneath the frame.
If you have a oil filter, you should change it as well as pumping all the old oil out of the cooler, if you have one.
Have fun, hope this helped you out.

First off, you have to find the Front Cylinder Advanced timing mark on the flywheels. Lift the rear wheel of the bike off the ground and support it in a safe manner. Remove the spark plugs from the engine and put the transmission in fifth gear.
Now, using a common everyday plastic drinking straw (Note: don't use anything else or you may damage a piston or it may break off leaving part of whatever you used in the cylinder requiring the removal of the head) , bump the rear wheel in the direction of rotation until the front piston it at Top Dead Center. Remove the timing plug from the crankcase on the left side of the engine. You should see the TDC timing mark in the hole. If not, bump the engine slightly forward or backwards until you do. It should be a straight up and down line on the crank.
Now, slowly start bumping the rear wheel in the backwards direction. You may see a mark come into view that looks kinda like this "oo", this is a factory timing mark,not the front cylinder advanced mark. Continue bumping the rear wheel wheel in the backwards direction until you see the Front Cylinder Advanced mark. It will look like "dot" on the crankshaft "o". The piston should be approximately 7/16" down from TDC, If you go further, you will not see anymore marks until you come back around to the TDC mark.
NOTE, you may or may not have the front cylinder on the compression stroke. It doesn't matter, all you're doing right now is finding the correct timing mark. "
This is the mark you want to time the engine to. Put the transmission back in neutral. Reinstall the spark plugs and connect a timing light to the front cylinder spark plug. Start the engine and set the engine speed at 1300 -1500 RPM. Shine the light into the timing hole. You should see the Front Cylinder Advanced timing mark in the center of the hole. If not, you'll have to move the timing plate on the right side of the engine to get the timing mark in the center of the hole. Moving the plate clockwise advances the timing and moves the timing mark towards the rear of the timing hole. Moving the plate counterclocwise retards the timing and moves the timing mark towards the front of the timing hole.
Harley makes a clear plug to go into the timing hole that is supposed to prevent the oil spray from the oil when the engine is running. I've tried to use them but it is very difficult to see the timing mark when using one. There are other tools available, CleanTime or something like that, but I've never used them. I usually start the engine with the plug loosely screwed into the timing hole. Once I get the engine started and up to speed, I take the plug out. DO NOT GET YOUR FACE NEAR THE HOLE. The crankcase pressure will blow oil in your eye and it hurts. Stand back and a bit off to the side to view into the hole.
If you will contact me directly, I'll scan and send you a picture of what the timing marks look like. A picture is worth a thousand words. Contact me directly at wd4ity @ bellsouth.net

you should be able to replace the head gaskets on your evo without removing the whole engine. If you have never done engine work like this before, I would advise purchasing a service manual from harley that will walk you through step by step. I did the same on my 92 softail, which also doesn't give a lot of room the remove the rear top rocket box. Hope this helps.

I doubt you're going to find a free manual for any Harley-Davidson other than a very old one maybe. Harley-Davidson is very protective of their trademark and their copyrighted material. I have seen them come online from time to time but they didn't stay long. I would suspect the webmaster got a call from Harley's legal department.
