The only push rod in your bike is the clutch push rod. It is on the left side of the engine and between the flywheel and the chain sprocket. Just remove the left side chain cover to gain access to the rod. Pull the rod out of the center casing then use a screwdriver to pry the old seal out. Then just put a new seal in its' place and re-install the rod. The rod will not need to be replaced unless it is bent or is pitted from rust where it runs through the seal.

I like the long chrome filter for the Softail Custom or Dyna series bikes. The part number is 63813-90. The factory specifies the use of 20W50 weight oil and of course, they recommend their Sny3 synthetic oil. You can use whatever oil you like as long as it meets certain specs. These specifications are listed on the oil container called API specs. What you are looking for it an oil with a "C" rating suitable for use in a diesel engine. So many oils today are API "SJ" or "SH" rated only for use in gasoline engines, not diesels. Pay particular attention to this. This is what Harley says you can use in an "emergency".
Now the debate about what oil to use in a Harley is as old as Harley's themselves and I don't care to get involved in the discussion. There are several oil manufacturers that make lubricants that they claim is suitable for use in Harley engines. Mobil makes a "V-Twin" oil, Amsoil and Royal Purple makes oil that they say is suitable. I don't know about Pennsoil but I'm sure they've got something. I would recommend going to their website to see what they say. If it's not mentioned, either e-mail them or call them and discuss it with them if you wish to use their products.
