It is coming from the crankcase vent behind the air filter, some companies offer a kit if it causes a problem for you.

Chances are your breather umbrellas are bad or your oil pump is shot. It could even be a really dirty oil filter.

SOURCE: removing harley davidson ultra classic gas tank

Drain the fuel either by siphening or removing the cross over tube at the front of the tank and letting it drain that way or just block off those cross over lines and leave the fule in the tank for removal.

0) remove seat
1) drain fuel
2) undo cross over line (bottom front of gas tank.
3) shut off pet **** and remove fuel line from pet ****.
4)there should only be 2 bolts holding the tank on, one at the top front of the tank and one at the back of the tank.

All in all a pretty easy (but possibloy messy) job.

Turn the Bike on and the Radio off and then follow the buttons on the screen. Most people think you have to do it while it is running and this does not work

I have a Harley Triglide w/103 engine. After warm-up steam or exhaust comes out the injector body. Shortly after oil seeps out as well. Is this a breather gear issue?


Hi, Gary oil leaking from your air cleaner is caused by oil carryover from the engine. For whatever reason, the breather system is not separating enough oil mist and air from the piston downstroke. There are cheap and quick easy fixes and there are more expensive ones. First, make sure your breather hoses are not dry and cracked if they are ok you can start by trying the following:
1. Run your oil level half way between the add and full mark when hot.
2. Run oil breather lines from the head into a TEE fitting below carb/induction module then a single line into a mini filter under the frame.
3. Purchase Arlen Ness Super Sucker.
4. Replace umbrella valves and realign oil pump.
5. Upgrade oil pump and cam plate.

Oil leak


Rick, since 1994, Harley has used what we call a "head breather" system in that the crankcase breathers are located in the heads. This was done in an effort to reduce the amount of oil that gets into the air filter. In earlier case breather model engines, the oil would pour into the air filter if the bike had been sitting for a few months. Prior to that, the bike would "puke" what looked like a quart of oil on the ground below the bike when first started after a long period of sitting.

If you'll remove the air filter cover and element, you'll see that the large bolts that hold the breather onto the heads are hollow. Inside the rocker boxes, there are small rubber "umbrellas" that are opened and closed by crankcase pressure. These are designed to allow your engine to breathe without an excess of oil being blown out. Still even though this system is better, a little oil still gets into the air filter. You can either keep this cleaned out or you can replace the "head breather" systems with an aftermarket system that changes the location the system exhaust crankcase pressure from. Also, you can change the "umbrella" seal and put in new ones. It isn't that difficult to do on the front head. The rear head can be tricky since there isn't much room to get to the bolts to take the rocker box cover off. The umbrella seals are located in the center section of the rocker box cover.

Good Luck
Steve

89 Harley FLTCU oil coming from the crankcase breather tube and


This is an age old problem for the Harley engine. In you 89 model, the crankcase breaths from behind the oil pump through a tube that runs to the backside of the air filter assembly. Most people that I know, simply remove the tube coming up to the air filter and block the hole in the air filter assembly backing plate. At the breather, they run a short hose to just behind the transmission and cut it off there. This is similar to the earlier Shovelhead engine and the way it breathes. In 1994, Harley went to the "head breather system" which was better but it still gets oil into the air filter assembly.

There is one thing I saw on the aftermarket assessories market once called a "CatchCan". The breather tube ran to it and it seperated the oil from the air and the held it in a small container to be emptied on a regular basis. I have never used one nor have I ever seen one so all I can tell you is what the book said. Matter of fact, I cannot remember where I saw it now. Custom Chorme catalog, maybe. Good Luck, Steve
