1993 sportster

i took all my hoses off during the rebuild and have since forgot which ones go where and the manual has a terrible picture for this

on the tank:
- top hard 90 small tube (vent)
- upper nipple (return)
- lower nipple (feed)
- large drain nipple (oil change)

on the motor:
- nipple above tranny
- nipple on the left of pump
- 90 degree nipple on right of the pump

i think but wanted to be sure its:

feed to the left of the pump
return on the right of pump
and vent is attached to above the tranny

are there more or anything im missing? i could have sworn i took atleast 4 hoses off

I had the same question, but what about the 90 fitting by that backend of the cam cover.

You're forgetting the pump --> oil filter hose, it's in the diagram. The others you said are correct, but the vent comes from the rear of the cam cover, and not the transmission.

That's the vent. It's on the diagram but not super clear.

Yeah I wasn't worried about that line from the pump to the filter cause I never removed it. So my question now is what do I do with this nipple on top of the transmission??

If I remember correctly it just vents to the ground.

I know that one is just vent also but it doesn't go anywhere . On the stock frames it goes up by the seat rails. I what think bout putting a filter on there instead of that hose. Any thoughts on that idea?
