How do i put oit in a 2005 harley sportster 1200

Hi Anonymous, the engine oil dipstick on Softail and Sportster models is located on the right hand front side of the oil tank and the Harley Bible says, engine should be at normal operating tempurature, let idle on jiffy stand for two minutes. Shut off engine and hold bike straight up and dipstick all the way in, correct engine oil level will be at the top full mark. Do not overfill oil tank as this will cause engine breathing issues. On Dyna and Touring models The engine oil dipsticks are located on the right front top corner of the transmission and the engine oil pan is underneath the transmission. The engine oil level is checked in the same manner as Softails and Sportsters. If you are having oil carryover or breathing issues (dipstick launch) try running oil level half way between the add and full marks, running the engine at this oil level will not harm normal operation. Good luck

Change head gasket 1974 Datsun 620 pickup

As far as compresion goes it is more important that all cylanders are close to each other than what the actual psi is they should be within about 5 psi of each other. When changing the head gasket on the 620 you need to make sure that you wedge the timing chain so that the chain tensioner does not pop out. If it does you need to remove the water pump and front engine cover to replace it. A 6 inch long piece of wood tapered from about 1 inch to about 1 3/4 inch should work. Other than that it's a very easy and straightforward job. I would recomend that you take the head to a machine shop and have it checked for warp, if the engine has been severly overheated it can cause the aluminum head to warp. I know this from personal experience. If there is some warpage just have the machine shop machine it back to flat so that the new head gasket dosen't leak. If you are getting oil comming OUT of the dipstick tube replace the PCV (positive crankcase ventilation) valveThe 620 is a great little truck and the L16 L18 and L20 engines were all very easy to work on and well designed. The downfall of almost all Datsuns was body rust.
