Changed the oil on my ironhead. I like the filter/cooler being on the way back to the tank, I just take the hose off at the cooler intake take tfe filter off put a catchcan under it and blow compressed air into the cooler air/oil comes out the filter

Then I put fresh oil in the tank and idle the motor until fresh oil comes out the hose from moter to cooler

Eagle Scout oil change
