Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
Hi Anonymous, take a 15 minute ride, let bike idle for 2 minutes and check oil level, drain or add as necessary to achieve full mark hot level. If you are still having problems, go to your local dealer and purchase part number 8873 check ball, 26262-80 spring, and 11105 o-ring. Then remove the the inboard cap on oil pump body with a large flat bade screw driver, use a pencil magnet to remove old spring and check ball, DO NOT USE!!!!! magnet on new ball. Install new parts and your good to go. Good luck

Shooting oil? Your engine is what we refer to as a "head breather". This is because the crankcase pressure is vented into the carburetor, by EPA requirements, through the two large hollow bolts on either side of the breather backing plate. They may be covered by rubber plugs but you can see them when you take the air filter off. Oil accumulation is normal but "shooting" is not. This would indicate a excessive buildup of oil in the rocker boxes and failure of the "umbrella valves" in the center section of the rocker box covers. I'd take the air filter cover off and clean it out thoroughly and see if it still did it. If so, you've got a problem with the crankcase venting system on the engine. Since I'm not that familiar with the Twin Cam engine, I'm reluctant to guess exactly what the problem is. In the older Evolution engines that I'm familiar with, I'd suspect the "breather gear" in the cam chest but I'm not sure the TC-88B engine uses this system. Sorry I can't be more specific.
