Question about 2000 Harley Davidson FLHTCUI Electra Glide Ultra Classic
Hi Goulets, if it's leaking from the case seams aside from splitting the cases and resealing them is to check the torque on the case bolts 1/4" bolts/nuts 10 ft lbs. 5/16" bolts/nuts 20 ft lbs. for all other leaks the usual suspects are:
1. Loose parts.
2. Imperfect seal at gaskets, push rod covers, washers ect.
3. Restricted oil return line to oil tank/pan.
4. Restricted breather hose to air cleaner.
5. Restricted oil filter.
6. Oil tank/pan overfilled.
7. Bottom rocker housing gasket installed upside down.
Good luck and have nice day.

I don't blame you for wanting to do this yourself. Be sure to use a harley filter and harley oil.
Drain the oil, replace o ring on drain plug, replace drain plug, remove oil filter, fill oil filter with 20/50 harley davidson oil and replace filter being careful not to overtighten, fill oil tank with the bike upright to the fill line on the dipstick. Take the bike for a short ride and check the fluid level while warm.

SOURCE: Front fork seal is leaking
Yep, drain the fork oil, raise the front wheel in the air, remove the front wheel and axle. The nut to remove the lower leg is at the bottom, hidden by the axle. If it still leaks after seal replacement your fork tubes and lower leg sliders are worn out. Reassemble and remove the top fork cap. Pour in the correct cc of fork oil and ride.

I assume that by "main jug gasket" you are talking about the cylinder base gasket. If so, to fix the leak you must pull the cylinder off to get to the gasket. This is a common problem with the Evolution engine.
This job will require that the fuel tank be removed. The rocker boxes, the head, and cylinder will have to be removed from the engine. To get the heads off, the exhaust system and induction system will have to come off as well. The old gaskets will have to be replace with new ones. One other thing that will have to be replaced is the cylinder studs. There are four studs on each cylinder. Due to the problems that Harley experienced with the leakage at the cylinder bases, they came out with a new set of studs that were designed to help with this situation. You will want to replace these studs as well and a new set of rings while you're there.
This is not an extremely difficult job but it is quite involved, much too involved for me to give you all the instructions via this forum. I would advise you to purchase a H-D service manual for your bike. There are also some special tools involved in doing this job. You must have an "inch pound" and a "foot pound" torque wrench to do the job properly. You'll also need a ring compressor and a cylinder hone.
Good Luck, Steve

The oil pan is on the bottom of the transmission. Look under the transmission and you'll see two drain plugs. The one closest to the front left corner is the engine oil drain. The one closest to the center is the transmission drain.
