To change the rocker box gaskets, simply take the bolts out of the top of the rocker boxed. You'll probably have to take the tank off to get to the bolts and there should be a hole in the frame to get the left side rear bolt out of the rear cylinder rocker box. Replace the "umbrella valve" in each center section while you're in there. Bolts torque to 100 inch pounds.

Good Luck

I was riding down the road the other day and oil started coming out my 98 dyna low riders external vent .

Your 98 Low Rider is a head breather and in stock configuration, the vent is directed into the air filter. It is typical of a little oil to come out of the breather but if it was a lot and it's continuous, you may have a problem. The first thing I'd check is the "umbrella vlaves" in the center rocker box plate. Over the years they'll get hard and fail to seal. Just take the rocker box covers off and replace the valves and the gaskets. No problem.

Good Luck

Put the gasket on dry and torque the 1/4" bolts to 7-9 foot pounds. Transmission takes 20-24 ounces of Syn3 20W50 oil or H-D semi-synthetic trans lub.

Valve cover gasket

The rocker cover gaskets can be changed with the engine installed. There are some low profile tools available to make getting to some of the bolts easier.

Spark plug well filling with oil.

a new valve cover gasket and o-rings around the wells should have cured this...did you clean the old o-rings off the valve cover completely before installing new ones? this is a common problem with these models.....i would re-check my gaskets and mateing surfaces. valve cover gaskets and spark plug well o-rings are relatively low cost. the spark plug is tight, correct? write back with an update!
