I just got a parts manual will be most helpful for finding correct parts...

Just thought I'd pass this along.
XLF member crb2855 ran across a possible replacement for the 86-90 breather umbrella. May be worth looking into.
http://xlforum.net/forums/showthread...2071387&page=9



It comes in a replacement kit for Dyna Twin Cams (17035-03A).
The umbrella itself is (26858-99).
I just checked New Castle and they have just the umbrella for $3.66 ea.
https://shop.newcastlehd.com/part/26858-99

The 02 Dyna parts book doesn't have just the umbrella but rather a kit (26500002) comes with a breather, baffle and filter.
But it fits the same assembly (17025-03A)

Doing a head gasket on an 1100... The gaskets I have have a silicon bead gasket sealer on one side and nothing on the other. Which side should the silicone go, facing up or down?? Also I see when I pulled the head off I noticed 2 of the head bolts have blue O rings of the studs, like they are used to help line the head gasket up? The parts manual does not show these O rings and the gaskets I got did not come with them. Is there supposed to be O rings there or not, and if so what is part number for them?

I use MLS gaskets so I'm not familiar with a head gasket with a sealer bead.
Don't quite make sense though.
O-rings used to be used on the head drain dowels but have since been deleted with newer gaskets.
Maybe someone else has more experience with this type gasket.

On the 1100... should the main oil line, the one that goes from the very bottom of the oil tank, to the inlet of the oil pump, rout over the starter, or under it?

Does this help?

The hose can be slipped behind these covers (at the junction of the two covers) without removing the covers.

The hose then drops down to follow along the frame (look from underneath the bike) and over to the oil pump.

If you feed the hose starting at the oil pump, and then going along the frame tube, then up to the starter at the area described (behind the covers mentioned earlier), you should be able to feed that hose under the starter to the oil tank without having to remove the starter or any covers..

Hope that description helps. It was a mouth full. KD
