A hex plug directly below the crankshaft? I haven't seen a plug like that on any Harley engine in years. The earlier models had them but Harley discontinued them here because so many people stripped the threads out of the hole. If you got anything out of the crankcase, if was probably just a few ounces of oil.

The Harley engine is what is known as a dry sump engine. This means that it stores it's oil supply in a remote tank rather than in the crankcase of the engine. Your Wide Glide carries it's oil supply in an oil tank that is on the bottom of the transmission. There are two drain plugs on the bottom of the transmission. The one closest to the left front corner is the engine oil drain plug the other is the transmission drain plug. If you by chance drained the transmission, it takes 20-24 ounces of H-D synthetic transmission lube. The engine takes three quarts of 20W50 engine oil. The oil filler cap is on the right side of the engine. It is a 2 inch diameter cap with knurled edges on the corner of the transmission.

Good Luck

Where is the oil drain plug for 2002 road king


There are three oils. You do not say which one.

Dyna engine oil is on the left side bottom of the oil pan near where the jiffy stand rests when up and straight in from the side. The primary is under the middle of the primary case on the left side facing the ground and the transmission is under the right side of the oil sump case about mid way from front to back. All are 1/4 inch ALLEN socket heads inside 5/8 inch hex plugs. All use an o-ring and thread sealant.

Softail is the same except the engine oil drain is on the right side at the rear of the frame down tube near the swing arm attachment point and faces the ground.

Touring is the same except that the engine oil drain plug is on the left hand side front of the oil pan facing the front.

Sportster engine oil drain is on a rubber tube hanging down under the frame near where the jiffy stand rests when in its up position and the transmission and the primary use the same drain plug and are the same oil. The engine oil plug is a 5/16 inch plastic plug held in place with a mini worm screw clamp with a plain screwdriver or ¼ inch hex worm drive fitting.

Trying to find the oil drain plug,have pulled two plugs from the bottom of the motor and neither one was the drain plug for the motor oil.One of these plugs I dont know what its for or how to refill...


I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic but I do know that the oil tank on your Wide Glide is on the bottom of the transmission. I think it has two oil drain plugs, one on the bottom of the pan and one facing the front of the bike on the left front corner of the pan. The transmission drain is the socket head pipe plug on the front of the oil pan, I think. One of the plugs on the bottom of the engine is simply a drain for the cam chest. If you're working in that area, you can drain the oil out of it by removing the plug. It'll refill itself once you start the engine. This should be the plug directly below the pushrod tubes. I'm not sure of what the other plug you pulled was. Like I said, I'm not a Twin Cam mechanic. I work on the older models like the Panhead, Shovelhead, Evo, and Ironhead Sportys.
Go to this site and look up your bike and see what these plugs go to. http://www.bikebandit.com

Changing transmisson fluid 2006 dyna wide glide


The drain is bottom side of the transmission. It's a plug that takes a hex key to remove and is just towards the center of the pan from the oil drain plug. Your transmission takes 20-24 ounces of fluid. Always check the level with the dipstick when you change the oil.

Where is the Oil Drain Plug, and where is the Primary Drain Plug?


Oil drain plug is located to the front or left side of the Dyna's oil pan. The drain plug for the primary is near the lowest point of the primary cover itself. Be careful, what looks like a hex/allen head screw/plug is a 6 pointed "Torx" drain plug.

Where oil plug drain on 99 land cruiser


Always look for an oil drain plug on the bottom of the oil pan, below the engine block.

Don't worry, the transmission pan doesn't have an oil drain plug.

It is usually a hex, removable with a wrench.

Gear box and crankcase oil amounts


You have THREE oil 'compartments' on your particular year&model bike.

(1) The ENGINE OIL
---( which holds 3 to 3.5 quarts or liters of oil).
---On the right side of the bike, and at the rear of the ENGINE OIL TANK, you should notice a Hose that is connected to the oil tank. Follow that Hose downward.
The other end of that hose will either :

----A: Be connected to the bottom of the frame,
OR
----B: Have a Metal Plug in the end of the hose. That 'plug' will be held in the hose via a hose clamp, and also will be secured to the frame via a 'clip' that is actually part of the frame).

-- IF(A): the Hose leads from the tank and is attached to the frame, you will notice a hex-head plug (that also has a hex-cutout in it's center for insertion of a hex or allen key) underneath the part of the frame that the hose is attached to. Remove/Unscrew that Hexplug from the frame to drain the engine oil.

--IF(B): the hose that leads from the Oil Tank has a "HosePlug" that is inserted into the end of the hose, remove that plug to drain the engine oil.

*Removal of the Enging Oil DIPSTICK, located at the mouth/fill area at the top of the Tank will aid in a faster flow of oil from the tank. When done draining, re-install the drain plug.

-When changing the engine oil, also remove and install a new Oil Filter.

*Put in no more than 3 quarts/liters of oil into the Engine Oil Tank.
*Ride your bike for min. of 10 minuets, then park and shut down the engine, wait for about 2 minuets, and check the level via the Dipstick. Proper oil level will be at or just below the 'FULL' mark of the dipstick.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(2) The TRANSMISSION OIL:

On the right side of the motorcycle, the
TRANSMISSION OIL FILLER PLUG/DIPSTICK is located on the foward facing side of the Transmission End Cover. The Trans End Cover is the cover that the Clutch Cable goes into. The Trans Fill/Dipstick has a Hex/Allen cutout in it for insertion of a hex/allen key to remove it.

The Trans DRAIN PLUG is either located either:
A: -Located on the Transmission Case, JUST BELOW the Trans End Cover. If here, the "Drain Plug" will be a TORX fastener. Remove that Torx fastener to drain the Trans Oil.
OR
B: -Located UNDERNEATH the Trans Case, in between the two Shock Absorbers. If here, the 'Drain Plug" will be a HexPlug that is the same type drain plug as described earlier for the engine drain.

TRANSMISSION OIL QUANTITY is as follows:
** 600 ml. for a 5-speed transmission.
OR
** One Full Quart/Liter for a 6-speed Transmission.

******Use the Trans Dipstick to verify that the level is correct. Between the FULL and ADD mark, or at the FULL mark.

ALSO NOTE: Drain, and Check your Oil when the bike is level. Have a friend assist you if needed. You don't want the bike falling, and/or landing on you.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
(3) The PRIMARY OIL

Located on the LEFT SIDE of motorcycle, the PRIMARY HOUSING connects the Engine Crankshaft TO the Transmission Output Shaft via a Primary Chain, which is lubricated by an oil bath.

(Make sure the Engine Run/Stop Switch is in the STOP or OFF position).

Remove the DERBY COVER (the Large round cover, with 5 Torx Fasteners. With the bike level, you should note that the oil level come to approx. just past the bottom of the Clutch Basket.

The Primary DRAIN PLUG is located: either at the

(A) Left Face of the Outer Primary Cover, below the Derby Cover.
If so, it will be a TORX or HEX/ALLEN fastener. It is NOT the same as the Hex/Allen fasteners that surround the Outer Primary Cover securing it to the Inner Primary Cover.

OR

(B) Located UNDERNEATH and ON the Outer Primary Cover, just below the Derby Cover area. It will either be a HEX FASTENER, or a Torx Fastener.

-Remove the Drain Plug to drain the Primary Oil.
-Reinstall the drain plug and fill (thru the Derby Cover Area) with ONE QUART/LITER of PRIMARY OIL.


****** BE SURE to clean and coat the threads of each Drain Plug with Teflon Paste thread sealant. NOT THREAD LOCKER.

****** BE SURE NOT TO OVER TIGHTEN THE DRAIN PLUGS.

If you are unclear of anything I wrote, please dont' hesitate to get in touch with me through here.
Good Luck , and THANK YOU.
