I found a pic I believe from this thread:
http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...86#post1334586

[QUOTE=4-pac;1334586]5 mile test ride I noticed the shifter shaft seal trying to pop itself out of the primary cover, back to the garage. Clean all the oil off the seal and cover, still can’t get it to stay. Off to the auto part place for a tube of contact cement and an o-ring (5/8 OD x ½” ID x 1/8” thick) to put some extra pressure on the seal from the outside. The extra o-ring is next to the shifter peg.

Thanks SportsterPaul & HippySmack for the directions...

I updated the SP with info on the '04-vs-'06 Shifter Shafts (with pics) and added the tip about using an o-ring to tighten up the oil seal. I also included the tip about putting tape over the shifter shaft splines to protect the new oil seal when installed...

I've created a page in the REF section on Evo Crankcase Pressure and Engine Breathing.

Still working on CC pressure.
But in searching threads, some people get off topic (me included ).
So I end up kind of working on several different topics at once as I come across them.

Consequently, I've added a page in the REF section for Aftermarket Air Cleaners and Modifications.
It's not populated yet but I did include a piece on routing the vent lines below the head vents on 91 up models.
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...nifold_exhaust

edit:
I also added JohnK's 04 Style Oil Cap Repair:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/techtalk:evoil04b

and shameless', Rebuilding the Kidney Tank Oil Cap in the IH section.
