Question about Harley Davidson XLH 1000 Sportster Motorcycles
You need a piece of 3/8" clear hose. Jack the bike up and shift the transmission into fourth gear. Remove the spark plugs. Fill the clear hose with oil and plug it onto one of the fittings on the pump. Now, turn the rear wheel in the direction of normal rotation. Watch the oil in the hose. If the oil moves toward the pump, this is the intake fitting. If bubbles are blown into the oil in the hose, this is the output of the pump.
At the oil tank, the hose coming off the very bottom of the tank is the feed line to the pump. The nipple at the top under the tank filler cap is the return. There may also be a breather nipple on the tank somewhere but I don't think these early models had that.
Is your Sporty an XLH model or an XLCH model?
