Question about Harley Davidson FXDWG Dyna Wide Glide Motorcycles
Posted by Anonymous on
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.
