    I’ll be dogged.

    Finally spotted a very tiny hole on the inner side of rear head vent line . Right at the Tip of the nozzle going into the oil tank . Boy , talk about HIDDEN ! Well I thought it was fixed before , so we shall see once more .

    I suppose the best way to use this is in the dark with the motor running , Choke Gag Cough ?

    This isn’t some new fangled stuff. Been around for ever. Any reputable parts house can hook you up with a fluorescent oil leak detection kit.

    The best way to find a "hard to find leak" is with leak dye and a black light.

    Any source for a leak can be traced back to its origin.

    You just haven’t found it yet.

    possibly too much oil in the motor, possibly fuel is overflowing carb while off going into bike past rings, adding to engine oil?

    OK replaced Oil Feed and Return Line "O" Rings and all was well . Until I slowed in town at Bike , Blues and Bar b que yesterday when stopped the slight OIL LEAK showed again dribbling down the Transfercase face. I've been searching this Leak for 3 weeks now . Any answers to where this is coming from ? All rubber Hoses check out and can not find gasket leakage anywhere . HELP !!!

    Well I got it apart , waiting on OEM o rings. That " Plug " in the top hole at the bottom end of the sending oil tube is a piece of CRAP rubber plug , nothing else. It covers a perfectly threaded hole , the cheap basterds could not simply put a bolt in. It will have one for it's remaining life.

    Started to pull oil tubes and noticed upper bolt on bottom end of return tube has no bolt . Looks like a blank stud. What the heck ??

    I had to replace those orings on the eagles bike to correct an oil leak on the lower side.

    I wonder how an O ring behind a flat flange against a flat mount surface could "wear out ? " and leak ? That's what happened to my upper oil feed line on my '01 Midnight . I mean HECK ! it hadn't leaked for 107,000 miles . How is this possible ?
