Pretend you're adjusting the valves but drop the adjusters all the way down. The pushrods and the tubes will come right out. There is no need to disassemble anything else.

You can get them by searching for pushrod seals on your preferred sportster parts website.

from the ebay link'''57-early'79 use the cork gaskets.late'79-85 use the rubber o-ring''. D.K.link shows rubber gaskets in place of cork.these or the cork are not o-rings which your '82 would use.i can't see your picture.

Seal is dependant on which tubes are installed. They may have been changed over the years. Bruce is correct for your year they should be o-rings. That would be verified by looking at the ends of your tubes. O-ring type will have the lip for the o-ring seat. Early use the cork with a flat edged tube.
