On the air filter backing plate the two bolt that hold it to the cyclinder head are hollow and part of the engine or crankcase breathing system when the pistons are on the down stroke this creates pressure and so to vent this out the air travels up threw to the heads with the oil and there is a little filter to catch and stop the oil and allow the air to pass out thew to the atmosphere however it does carry some oil with it . Old school used to vent out to the chain and help lube it.Now with the EPA rules it vents into the air intake system and the oil burned with the fuel.You can change the filter element which is under the rocker covers.

No offense, but you really need a service manual to learn which drain plug to remove to change the Trans fluid, there are three under there, two for oil and Transoil change the other is to be left alone. AFAIK, things change from model year to model year.

I want to change the oil and filter. Where is the


The oil pan on the Wide Glide is on the bottom of the transmission. There are two drains of the bottom of the oil pan. The drain in the center is the transmission drain plug. The drain at the left front corner is the engine oil drain. Drain the oil with the bike on the side stand. Refill with the three quarts of oil if you change the filter. Two quarts, 14 ounces if you don't change the filter. Start the engine and allow it to run for about two or three minutes. Check the oil level with the bike on the side stand. The dipstick has two marks one mark is "Full Cold", the other "Full Hot". Top the oil level off to the "Full Cold" mark.
