Technically speaking.....NONE!

In reality, an oil line runs from the oil pump return line fitting to the oil filter, and FROM the oil filter TO oil tank return line fitting.

Hey Cameron,
On most Harleys, the return line is the one closest to the filler neck.

Which pipe is the feed from the oil tank on 2000 evo 1200


The way to tell on Harleys is as follows (with explanations).



If you pull the oil lines one at a time, the following will happen:

On the oil return, and the vent line, oil will not flow out (except maybe a little residual oil).

On the feed line (oil tank TO oil pump), oil will flow out, especially it the oil cap is removed!

NOW, if you\'re asking because you want to install an inline oil filter or oil cooler, the feed line IS NOT the one you want to install this on!!!



Why?



The feed line is gravity fed to the oil pump, and there is no pressurization in this line, and the line could cavitate (suck air), especially if the filter/cooler are mounted too high!



The RETURN line is where you want to install these items, as this line is pressurized with the engine running, forcing the oil through them on the way back to the oil tank.



So which is the vent, and which is the return?



Pull the two lines you have already identified as NOT being the feed line (as described above), start the bike and run for ONLY about 5-30 seconds (or however long is needed), and see which line has oil coming out of it under pressure.



THIS is the line to install an oil filter and/or cooler.

Oil light won't stay off


Could be a couple of different things.

First off, check your oil level....is it correct? (I know, kinda stupid of me, but I had to ask)

Just because you have oil doesn't mean the oiling system is working.
On thing you can do is remove oil tank cap, using a flashlight look down into the tank and see if you can notice oil being pumped back into the tank.
Or, you can pull the oil sending unit and see it oil pumps out the hole when the engine runs (this WILL be messy!).

Or, pull the oil return line at the oil tank.
IF you pull the feed line by mistake, you'll know!
Oil will run out the tank fitting until the tank runs out of oil! (opps, wrong line!)
When you pull the return line, you should get just some residual oil out the tank fitting (and the line).
Put the end of the line in a container and see if oil squirts out when the engine runs.

If all the above indicate oil IS circulating, the oil sending unit itself might be bad. They do occasionally go out.

1972 shovelhead oil routing


Bottom of oil tank to right/outside feed on pump. Inside is return line to top of tank where filter cap is. If you ran a cooler than run this line to the cooler and back to the tank. Above the pump is the large vent line. It goes to a tee fitting and than to the top of the tank and to the back/bottom of the primary. The small line goes to the back /center of the primary. It\'s the chain oiler.

We need to know if the radiator has an enigine oil cooler in it so we know which one to buy


if you get under the car on the driver side were the oil filter is and look were the filter screw onto the motor,if you see 2 large lines coming from the plate that the filter screws onto going to the front of the motor and attach to the lower rad then you have an engine oil cooler in the radiator.there will be lines that come from the transmission to the radiator that are considerably smaller.

Does anyone have a diagram for how the oil lines run on a 1970 ironhead sportster with an oil cooler?


You '70 model has the "long" style oil pump on it. It has a inlet and an outlet. Of course, the hose from the bottom of the oil tank goes to the inlet. From the outlet of the pump, route your oil line to the oil cooler. Then from the oil cooler back the top of the oil tank where the cap goes on. The oil filter is inside the tank under the cap. There is also a vent hose that comes from just in front of the front chain sprocket that goes to the small nipple on the oil tank. This is the way most people run the oil lines.

I have a 2250 Poulan. The fuel lines have been removed. Is this the correct routing for the fuel line? Starting at the filter in the tank,will the line go to the bottom of the carb.? Then the line goes out...


Is there a fix for bar oil running out of the saw all the time until the tank is empty?


there is bad oil line repalce it.

Is this the correct routing for the fuel line? Starting at the filter in the tank,will the line go to the bottom of the carb.? Then the line goes out at the top of the carb. to the primer\'s suction side? Then out of the primer to the fuel tank? This route the primer pulls gas through the carb. Does it make any difference which hole in the tank the lines go to?

YES that correct

I need to know how the fuel lines are hooked up in my ryobi gas trimmer. All of the fuel lines rotted out. I took them out and I need to know the correct connection sequences (what goes where).


line runs from little filter in tank to carb.
line from carb. to primer bulb
line from primre bulb back to gas tank.
lines are 2 sizes
need to cut at angle end of lines in tank so you can get them thru holes
and grab with needle nose plyers and pull them thru.
make sure you put the little filter on end before you pull line thru and leave
enough so filter can move around the whole tank.
second line in tank is smaller and need to cut and pull it thru hole in tank to primer bulb
