Check that hose routing is clear of the oil filter and sharp edges. The hoses must be free of bends or kinks that could obstruct oil flow. 8. Ensure all cables and harnesses are clear of the oil cooler adapter, in order to prevent wear. 9. Thoroughly clean the oil cooler of all dirt, grease and wax with isopropyl alcohol. Use the alcohol to clean the chrome oil cooler cover as needed. Allow to dry. is00745 Figure 4. Apply Sealant Inside Chrome Cover 10. See Figure 4. Apply sealant to the inside of the chrome cover as shown, at the upper and lower corners. NOTES Be careful to avoid getting sealant on the oil cooler cooling fins. Do not operate the motorcycle for 24 hours to allow the sealant to fully cure. 11. Slip the cover over the oil cooler. Remove any excess sealant from the front and back of the oil cooler. Hold the cover firmly in place for one minute. System Flow Test 2005 & Later Models or Models with Later Style Dipsticks Oil level cannot be accurately measured on a cold engine. For pre-ride inspection, with motorcycle leaning on jiffy stand on level ground, oil should register on dipstick between arrows when engine is cold. Do not add oil to bring the level to the FULL mark on a COLD engine. (00185a) 2004 & Earlier Models

HARLEY DAVIDSON LCD OIL TEMPERATURE/ LEVEL DIPSTICK INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

Filed Under (Harley Davidson) by admin on 01-02-2011

download
LCD DIPSTICK INSTALLATION 1. Remove the original equipment (OE) dipstick from the filler neck. 2. Non-threaded Dipsticks: Lightly oil the O-ring on the new LCD dipstick. Orient the dipstick so that the display window is horizontal and readable from left to right, with the Bar and Shield logo to the left (towards the rear of the motorcycle). Push the dipstick straight into the filler neck until it seats. 3. For threaded dipsticks: Lightly oil O-ring and screw into the transmission like OE dipstick. If the orientation of the display is unsatisfactory when fully seated, refer to Adjusting the Display Angle later in these instructions. NOTE To be sure of correct readings, the dipstick MUST seat firmly against the flange. LCD DIPSTICK USE AND CARE Removing the Dipstick The dipstick assembly must be removed from the filler neck to add oil or to service the internal battery. Displaying the Oil Temperature and Level See Figure 1. Press and release the rubber button on the front face to display the temperature of the oil in the oil tank in degrees Fahrenheit (°F), and the oil level. The display will automatically shut off after approximately ten seconds. Do not overfill oil tank. Doing so can result in oil carryover to the air cleaner leading to equipment damage and/or equipment malfunction. (00190a) NOTES Oil level cannot be accurately measured: • on a cold engine • with the motorcycle upright • with the engine running NOTE Oil level on 2000 through 2004 Softail models with the original dipstick is checked with the motorcycle standing upright (not leaning on the jiffy stand). THIS IS NOT THE CASE with the LCD oil temperature/level dipstick. For all 2000 and later Softail models, oil level inspection must be done with the motorcycle LEANING ON the jiffy stand, on level ground. For pre-ride oil level inspection: With the motorcycle on level ground, RESTING ON the jiffy stand : •The oil level should be as indicated in Figure 1, display 4 through 8 (bars showing oil level, and “COLD OIL” message followed by flashing oil temperature) when the engine is cold. DO NOT ADD OIL to bring the level to the FULL mark on the dipstick of a COLD engine. •If the oil level indicates as in display 9 (animated level bars, followed by an “888 NO SENSOR” code), the wires inside the dipstick may be disconnected or damaged. Refer to Replacing the Battery later in these instructions to separate the dipstick upper and lower assemblies. If the small plug next to the battery has become dislodged from the receptacle, plug it in. If a visible wire is damaged, a repair can be attempted. If no damage is visible, the dipstick is damaged internally and should be replaced. For oil level inspection at operating temperature: Ride the motorcycle until the engine is at normal operating temperature. Idle for 1-2 minutes with the motorcycle on level ground, RESTING ON the jiffy stand (except Softails) , turn the engine OFF.

See Figure 1 to verify all Feuling components and the proper mounting bracket for your model 2. Wash, clean and inspect all new Feuling hardware, Including – off-set sandwich oil filter adapter, filter cooler housing and oil lines, use compressed air to blow dry the oil lines, fittings, threads and bolt holes. Use a tap and die if needed to clean threads. (On installation use lubrication on all fasteners and fittings) 3. Refer to the proper service manual for your model motorcycle & engine, for removal of engine oil and spin-on oil filter. Dispose of these items properly. 4. Clean engine case oil filter spigot and sealing surface thoroughly. 5. Install the clean Feuling off set oil filter sandwich adapter; both O-ring and gasket need to be assembled dry. 6. First install the inside half of the off-set oil filter adapter, O-ring side towards engine case filter mount. We recommend using a dab loctite on the 1″ lock nut. (See figure 2) It is recommend to mock up the sandwich adapter before torquing nuts and bolts to obtain desired orientation and proper clearance to engine case and frame rails. 7. Install the fittings and oil lines onto the outer half of sandwich adapter torque fittings to proper specs using thread sealant on the 1/8 NPT threads and engine oil on the -4 AN oil line fittings. 8. Complete installation of sandwich adapter, including the inner gasket. Finger tight the allen head bolts in an alternating sequence on both sides before final torque. Re-Torque the allen head bolts after the first heat cycle after installation and during every oil change.

The Norton filter adapter is then bolted to the rear piece, oil hoses are added, an oil filter is screwed into place, and the assembly is offered to the bike. With the bike supported by straps up on a lift, it will be easy to loosely mount the front clamp section in place and slide the whole assembly up the frame tube. In order to miss the center stand, the filter will need to be as high as possible without the grease nipple striking the top of the adapter. As it ends up, there is “sweet spot” where both the nipple and the stand miss the oil filter by about an 1/8 inch. Tighten the mount down when you find that place. I found that the Norton filter adapter is best plumbed using 5/16 ID black neoprene fuel hose. The spigots on the adapter are 3/8 inch, but it is better to stretch the hose over these that to use easier fitting 3/8 ID hose and then try to shrink it onto the Triumph’s smaller metal oil lines. There will simply be fewer oil leaks using the smaller hose. Be sure that you plumb the filter into the oil line that returns engine oil back to the oil tank. The Triumph oil pump cannot be counted on to create enough vacuum to suction highly viscous motor oil through a very fine filter during cool temperatures. Trying to place the filter on the oil line feeding the engine will quickly result in massive engine damage. It is always better to have the oil pump pushing oil through the filter, and the only way to have RF Whatley, Suwanee, GA 5 Jan 2008 that is to use the return oil line. On all “unit-construction” Triumph engines, the rear-most oil port is the engine oil return. Other Notes • It is generally considered that adding an oil filter will at least quadruple the life of a British motorcycle engine. These motors, which were for the most part perfected in the 1950′s, were designed to run on the older non-detergent oils. In the original design, the oil tank was the oil filter since all particulate debris in the oil settled to the bottom of the oil tank as sediment. All modern engine oils are high-detergent and tend to inhibit the formation of sediment. Therefore most of the fine abrasive in the engine oil continues to circulate unless a filter is added.
