To remove the oil pump from a Sportster. First drain the oil tank. Disconnect and mark all hoses. Plug the hoses to keep oil from leaking out and contamination from entering. Remove the four bolts that hold the oil pump into the engine and allow it to drop down.

Now, I don't know if they've changed anything since the early '90's on the bikes but they say you can get the oil pump out without having to remove the engine. I've found this not to be true. I didn't have to completely remove the engine but I did have to take the engine loose from the frame at both the front and rear to get the pump out of the engine. I couldn't even get the two rear bolts out without doing this. Hopefully they've made it to where you can get the pump out.

Now, comes a question. Why do you want to take the pump out? On the late models, they've done away with those aggrevating pins that kept shearing. The only late model pump that I've had to deal with had trash in the inlet fitting and stopped the oil flow into the pump. Someone had tried to stop a leak in the oil tank by putting "Creme" fuel tank coating in the oil tank. Never do this. The "Creme" coating is not effected by the oil but it is by the heat. Hot oil is not good for the stuff. It gets brittle, flakes off, and plugs the inlet of the oil pump. Just pull the bottom plate off and clean it out.

Good Luck
Steve
