Valve adjustment and new idle jet for the 73 xlch, planning gauge mount for the 79 xls, and then a bath for the plated bikes.

Replaced oil lines. Mounted low brow external oil filter. Stalled out on which line do I connect to oil filter then back to oil tank. I have found two different pictures. One says the line on top of tranny, right angle fitting. Another shows the fitting you have to remove the sprocket cover to get to. Help wizards of yore. Lost.

You want the right angle fitting.
