Stickr is an unknown quantity at this point
Default 2002 lightning rocker box

Hi.. The front rocker box is leaking, oil runs down the front of the engine right above the exhaust. Im wanting to change it myself however not sure which set, sets to order or from were.. When i search on the web there seems to be a large variation. I dont like buying from HD shops since u pay twice the price. I know its a job since the motor must be lowered. Thanks for tips.

Try tightening the rocker box bolts first, sometimes they just vibrate loose slightly. When pricing parts, ALWAYS comparison shop. Where I live, the Harley dealer prices are pretty much the same as aftermarket prices and I feel that with Factory parts, I know the quality.
