    There are no '80 evos. What kind of five speed? Softail case, or a five in four case? Are you sure you have a Softail inner primary, or is it from an FLT/FXR? How is the transmission installed in the frame?

    Start reading and downloading manuals and factory parts catalogs so you KNOW what you have (and save tons of money by buying correct parts).

    POST PICS. There are a variety of five speed gearboxes and to help you we need to know exactly what you have. Post clear well lit pics of both sides of the drivetrain. We need to see both sides of your transmission and of course your engine since there were no 1980 Evos.

    An FLH is a rubbermount frame style so Softail parts will not work because Softail primary covers are too long and designed for solid-mount drivetrains. We cannot tell what primary cover (there are a variety) to recommend without knowing what you really have.
