    Oil feed, or supply, can be to the bottom of the pump cover as in your picture, so that's OK.

    Return should be to a filter, and then to the oil tank.

    Vent line from the case just above the oil...

    Some would say a change from an evo to a twink is not a step forward. (I'm one of them.)

    If it has been sitting, the motor may just be wet sumped. The problem will probably go away once you put the bike into regular service. Most H-D motors will wet sump after sitting for a long time, ...

    Oil pump is not scavenging oil at a rate great enough to keep the cam chest empty? Do you have an oil filter on the return side of the system, or some other obstruction? It should not be puking oil...

    I don't understand your neutral lamp or turn indicator lamp wiring. In your diagram neither makes any sense.

    I don't think that is gonna fly. I believe the pivot mounting of the swingarm was changed between those years, and there is no interchange possible.
    I won't say this as an absolute positive, but a...

    Sounds like the dowel holes in your new door have not been reamed. Is it new or used? H-D or aftermarket? Transmission trap doors can be swapped at will throughout the five speed production run, at...

    You will note on those XLs that the battery negative cable fastens to the top left rear motor mount bolt. So, that takes care of motor and frame ground at the same time.

    I prefer to wire 30 directly to the main breaker rather than have that circuit go through the ignition switch. If the start button is switched 12V, it is a safe way to do it, and you get full batt...

    I don't warm up vehicles before operation, just run them easy until warmed up. I think that is the modern approach to the issue.

    H-D style external cable throttle controls include a friction spring and screw that can be used to set a fast idle when the motor is cold. I also like that feature for hiway running as it allows me...

    Definitely on point.

    I would exhaust (no pun intended) the possibilities that do not require motor disassembly first, really a no-brainer. I think the ignition module is by far the odds-on choice...

    An intake leak will lean out your jetting. That is what makes them so dangerous. If not corrected, a stuck exhaust valve is the eventual result (or sometimes something worse). It's good that you...

    Don't pay him any mind, he's just having a fit of pique. It has nothing to do with you or your motorcycle.

    If you have a shovel that doesn't knock or smoke, you have a good motor. (The oil leaks...

    Not unusual to have rather low compression numbers when kicking as compared to turning the motor with the electric starter. But under 100psi is kinda lame.

    But, you have a little over 10%...

    If it's the correct front end, no brackets are necessary. The shoulder bolts pass through the lugs on the lowers to mount the calipers.

    Softail oil tank is 3 qt. and the old square tank on the four speeds is 4 qt. Either size will do.

    L,

    Since you feature one bob with rear shocks in your introduction to this thread, I guess you are open to rear suspension. As a 67 year old (who identifies as a 47 year old), I can tell you that...

    If you feel the need to do so, that would be fine with me. But I am very much an advocate of learning by doing, hands on.
