A pink substance? How much and what plug did you remove?

The oil tank for your FLH should be on the bottom of the transmission. Although I'm not familiar with the last several year models of bikes, this has always been the location of the oil tank since the early '90's on this model.

When you look at the bottom of the transmission you'll see two drain plugs. The one in the center of the pan is the transmission drain plug. The one at the left front corner is the oil drain plug.

Good Luck

Egr valve chevy lumina '97 3.1 lumina ,i pulled the egr there was a white greasey substance in it as well as well as the passages to the throttle body and and exhaust, what is it,where did it come...

that sounds as if your engine breather system requires cleaning, the substance is emulsified oil, normally caused by poor oil, lack of oil changes, or possibly head gasket problems, clean out all the breather hoses, filter etc, run engine until warm, drain engine oil and refill with a good quality oil, renew oil filter and then run and check again after a few miles

After hunting around the web for a few, it sounds like the spring is from the timing chain tensioner. It looks like there is a button on the end of the cylinder, that end goes in first, then the spring. See if the spring is the same on both ends, the picture looks like it's smaller at one end and that end goes into the tensioner, not the bolt. I'll include a screen shot of the picture.
Good luck!11_26_2011_3_17_47_pm.jpg
