SOURCE: what weight oil goes in transmission on a 1999

Mostly all motorcycles use the same oil in their Engins and transmission, you do not needs to put a seperate oil into the transmission, as the engin and transmission uses the same oil, you will also see that there is nowhere that you can top up the transmission oil, most motorcycles use 20W50 oils, but it can also depend on what country you are from

Engine noise on left side

1. You can purchase a gear set that eliminates the cam chains and shoes. Harley-Davidson should, in my opinion, make this a standard fix and not an after the fact option. If you can't afford to install the gear system, then you need to disassemble and inspect the inner and outer shoes every 15,000 miles or risk total engine failure. The shoe material can also clog the oil pump totally destroying the engine. There are plenty of motorcycle magazines explaining how to fix this nagging problem.

2. Overheating: Harley-Davidson engines run hot. The 88 cubic inch engine ran hot and at the high limits and the 96 cubic inch engine runs hotter yet which is not good for the engine. The 110 cubic inch engines run exceedingly hotter and so much so a class-action law suit was filed against Harley-Davidson from riders being burned from the engine heat (mostly from the rear cylinder near the rider's thighs). Heat burns to the skin is not the only problem as heat is an engine killer and the hotter these big air-cooled V-twins run reliability falls drastically. Don't expect engine longevity with a 103 or 110 cubic inch air-cooled V-twin such as the Harley-Davidson design. Clean synthetic engine oil and a large external engine oil cooler is a must have accessory, but it only helps engine cooling not cure these serious excessive heat problems that self-destructs the engine.

I am looking for a service/repair manual for a 1991 Harley Davison Springer with preferrably an 1340 engine. Can also be a 1350, 1440, or 1450 engine.

If you find a factory service manual, it will be for an 80 cubic inch (1340 cc) engine only. In 1991, all Big Twins came equipped with the 80 c.i. Evolution engine. The Twin Cam 88 c.i. (1450cc) engine didn't come out until 1999 in most of the Big Twin bikes and 2000 in the Softail bikes. Try this site for your manual.

Good Luck

In my first attempt to change my engine oil, I drained oil from bottom of my 2001 Fatboy, from the plug on the right side towards the front of the engine, just below the Twin Cam Cover and floor board,...

I'm not that familiar with the Twin Cam engine but from what you're saying, Harley has a drain or something in the cam chest of the Twin Cam engine. This is something new for Harley as the previous engines had no means of draining the cam chest. I would imagine that this is what the oil you saw was, oil in the cam chest waiting to be pumped back to the oil tank by the oil pump that is located in the cam chest. When you restart the engine, this area will again fill itself to the proper level.

Good Luck

I would simply like to see a diagram of the oil feed system on a 2000 twin cam harley motor. I have replaced the lifters but I am still experiencing excessive noise. I would like to check for...

I'm sorry but I don't have an oilling diagram of a Twin Cam. The way I check for blocked passages to the tappets is while I've got the tappet blocks out, I turn the engine over using the transmission in high gear and turn the rear wheel with the plugs out of the engine. I watch for the oil to pump up and out of the engine. Now, since I don't work on the Twin Cam engines I'm going to say something here that I'm not sure about. See if the engine has a tappet oil screen like an Evolution engine does. It a plug with a very fine mesh screen thingy that all the tappet oil flows through. Keeps trash out of the tappets.

Have you ridden the bike since you replaced the tappets? Sometimes you have to ride them a ways to get all the air out of the tappets. I've had to ride them for ten miles to get them to quieten down before. Now, if you only have one tappet causing a problem, shut the engine down and pop the pushrod tubes immediately. Try to turn the pushrods with your fingers. If can turn one or two, there is your problem

Good luck
