The check ball valve is in the oil pump. When you look at the top of the oil pump, the check ball is under the innermost threaded plug, the low one, not the high one. You will have to drain the oil tank before you remove this ball. Take out the plug, the sping, and use a magnet to remove the ball. Buy two new balls, they aren't expensive.
Now, drop on of the new balls into the hole. Take a brass drift and a hammer and gently tap on the ball. This will reform the seat that the ball sits in. Remove this ball and install the other new ball, spring, and threaded plug. Refill the oil tank.
Then, remove the crankcase breather line from the rear of the air cleaner. Plug the hole in the rear plate of the air cleaner. Purchase one of the small breather filters (/V-Twin #40-0352) and put it in the end of the crankcase breather hose and relocate the breather underneath the bike.

My oil stopped draining after less than a quart came out. She has sat for a while. Whats wrong?


Hi Erik, it's no big deal, sometimes when a bike sits for a while oil will drain past the check ball/valve in the oil pump and go straight to the flywheel compartment. If you have a plug at the bottom of your engine case remove it and drain the rest of your engine oil. If no plug start engine and it will return to the oil tank and sometimes into the air cleaner. You can remove air cleaner and backing plate and hold a drain pan underneath the rubber breather tubes coming out of the heads. Next time you put it away for winter or long storage, drain the engine oil first and put a note on the oil tank NO OIL. Good luck

Have oil coming out of the air box ?


Hi, Wood 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. 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.

Ingersoll-Rand Air Compressor P185WJD why would the pop off valve on the air separator keep popping off


its because the compressor is not unloading { going above 120psi} you need to check the air signal going to the unloader valve located on top of the screw, it should start putting out air at about 90psi to close the unloader. another thing is if you are getting oil in the air coming out of the front ball valve the seperator element is bad thats the filter inside the tank the pop off valave is mounted. you can check the air signal by fethering ball valve to run the machine at 90 psi the diconnect small air line on unloade to check for air signal coming from regulater

When engine is trying to start or running oil leaks out carburator area. doyou have video for step by step


If your engine has been sitting for a long period of time, your engine is probably "oil sumped". Since the oil tank is located higher on the frame than the engine, if the bike sits for a long period of time, oil will seep past the oil check ball and accumilate in the bottom end of the engine. I've seen the oil tank empty into the bottom end.

Now, the engine on your 93 model is what we call a case breather. The engine's crankcase breaker is located on the engine's cases down low. Later models are called "head breathers" in that the crankcase breathers are located in the rocker boxes, up high. So, even though the oil sumps on the later engine the oil doesn't go into the breather AS BADLY as the earlier models but it still gets in there.

Look on the back of the air breather assembly. There should be a pipe coming from the front of the engine on the timing gear cover on the right side of the engine going to the back of the air cleaner. Temporarily disconnect this pipe. Start the engine and allow it to run for a few minutes. Once the oil stops coming out of the pipe, reconnect it and disassemble the air cleaner. Clean the air cleaner. If the paper air filter is saturated, replace it. Reassemble the air cleaner assembly.

Now, Check the oil. Do not add oil to the engine as long as the oil is visible on the dipstick. Start the engine ride until the engine warms up. Now, with the engine warm, check the oil. The upper line is "Full Hot" while the lower line is "Full Cold". Set the oil level halfway between the lines. Do not overfill. If the bike is going to be sittting for a while, either drain the oil tank or start the engine about once a week and let it run for a few minutes. Do not allow it to overheat.

Good Luck.

Changing pvc valve


1995 Geo Truck Tracker 4WD 1.6L TBI SOHC 4cyl
The PCV Valve is located under hood, center, upper engine area, top of engine, mounted in passenger side of intake manifold.

The low gas mileage and the versatility that your 1995 through 1999 Geo Tracker offers are two benefits of owning it. The maintenance needs to be kept up on your Geo Tracker. One form of this maintenance is to replace the valve cover gasket once you have driven 100,000 miles or more.
  1. Allow your engine to cool. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the air inlet hose and air intake case or air cleaner housing. Detach the PCV valve hose from the PCV valve. Separate and remove the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable from their clips.
  2. Loosen and remove the valve cover bolts. Lift the cover up and off. Using a flathead screwdriver, gently nudge the gasket out of the gasket seating area. Using automotive engine cleaner and a clean cloth rag, clean the gasket seating area.
  3. Place the new gasket in the gasket seating area. Put the cover back into place. Put the bolts in and then using a torque wrench tighten them. Do not over tighten the bolts or the gasket will not fit correctly. Reconnect the spark plug wires and the accelerator cable in the holding clips.
  4. Reconnect the rubber hose to the PCV valve. Install the air intake case, or air cleaner housing, and the air inlet hose. Reconnect the negative battery cable. Add oil to the car and start the engine. Allow the car to run 10 to 15 minutes. This will allow the oil to lubricate the engine while it moves to the top.
I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Oil pressure light on at idle for Volvo S40 MY2005 B5244S4 Engine


Since you are going to check the one way valve and cleaning the filter too, I would recommend to check the intake air filter and clean it throughly. After that use carb cleaner to free up the nozzles of the injector valve . If the engine sound better after using carb cleaner, add some into the fuel from the fuel filter or pump, whichever one has easy access, and gun your engine in short bursts, after which it should run better.........sodeep

Leaking oil at air cleaner area


Hmm, take off the air cleaner cover, clean it all out, then fire the bike up, see if you still have a problem, it sounds like the engine vent might be plugged or restricted. After my old shovel sits for awhile, it always pukes out all the oil from the crankcase out the vent tube, but mine runs out on the swingarm, yours might run up to the air cleaner, too

Oil leak from air cleaner area


Hello bpowell456....this is more or less a generic problem on the harley.... an over filled oil tank will make it puke oil from the intake and a sticky check ball valve will cause it also...this ball type valve allows oil to drain back ...very common after sitting a while|
Good luck ...hope this helps

Oil overspill coming out of air cleaner/filter


Relax...... Harley's all vent oil thru the air cleaner, actually, S & S does to, except they put a overflow valve so it drips on the road rather than the engine. Various little things can cause the oil flow to increase, and yes, over filling, over heating, and sometime, just running balls out for awhile.

Its normal, and shouldnt cause any problems more serious than oil mist on yer engine ( and sometimes passenger)
