1996 sportster oil tank has 3 hose fitting the 1984 got 4 fitting how do you hook up hose ? from 84 to 96


Hi, Onebob yesterday I sent you a free service manual that covered both oil line routing systems but I guess that wasn't good enough and since we are thousands of miles apart I can't hold your hand to open the manual the best I can do is tell you that your Sportster oil tanks have:
1. Feed line from the bottom of the oil tank to the oil pump 3/8"
2. Return line from the oil pump to the top of the oil tank 3/8"
3. Vent line from the top of the oil tank to the gearcase 5/16"
If you have an aftermarket oil tank with 4 ******* I can't help you. You will need to do some R&D on your own.
You are welcomed to send me photo's of your tanks so I may be enlightened to your dilemma. xlch@mail.com
Good luck and have a wonderful day.

Where is the oil filter on a 1979 harley sportster


Hi Anonymous, Believe it or not 1979 XLH 1000 did not have an oil filter from the factory. They made an accessory kit you could purchase seperately and install yourself. Have nice day.

ADJUSTED VALVES AND NOW THERES IS SMOKE ON 75 HARLEY IRONHEAD


Hi Curtis, and the usual suspects are:
1. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
2. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
3. Restricted breather operation.
4. Restricted oil filter.
5. Piston rings badly worn or broken.
6. Valve guides or seals worn or crushed.
7. O-ring damaged or missing from oil pump/crankcase junction.

Oil line routing for 1980 xl 1000 with oil filter next to oil tank


I can provide you with a routing map but you'll have to contact me directly. This forum will not allow me to send a file any larger than 150kb and the drawing is larger than that. Send me an e-mail directly at wd4ity@bellsouth.net and remind me of what you want.

Good Luck

Where is the oil filter located on a 1979 Harley XLH Sportster?


I don't think the '79 model had an oil filter. The '80 & '81 model had a bracket that had a filter between the rear cylinder and the oil tank. The 78 and earlier models had the drop in filter in the tank. I think you can put one on if you change the front engine brackets to '82 to early '84 models.

Why do i have to prime my oil pump after every oil change?otherwise no oil pressure..79 ironhead...


You shouldn't be having to prime the oil pump with every oil change. If you're running the original oil tank in it's original position, when you drain the tank by removing the plug at the bottom of it, the oil line from the bottom of the tank going to the oil pump is still full of oil. As long a you're not doing something to drain that line, you should not have to prime the pump. It sounds like to me that you're removing the oil feed line to the pump in order to drain the tank. If you're doing it this way, you will have to prime the pump every time. Drain the oil from the oil tank by removing the drain plug from the tank.

Good Luck

Looking for oil pump timing marks 79 xlh in relation to crank, cams, case ? have oil pressure in oil tank and upper end noise after running a few min.lines are not restricted engine has been rebuilt by...


pump is not reliant on the timing marks its just a pump so id say it hasnt been primed when assembled!
thats why top end is noisy {no oil getting through]
check the bleed holes for restrictions if ok then the pump needs servicing

1989 sportster building pressure in oil tank


A little pressure is normal on the sportster. I have seen where if the oil tank is over full it can blow the dip stick out. Most of us who ride sportsters keep the level showing on the dip stick about midway between the low and full line. Doing this will also help with oil blow by out the air cleaner.
