It's as mysterious as the "oil pressure relief" valve rumored to exist inside my 1991 engine. Near "unicorn" status.

Good call John. I bet that would be hugely less expensive than via Boon.
Plus, I do wonder about buying elastomer components that are almost 25 years old.
Someone needs to post pictures and dimensions of one of these 26856-82 critters
when they have a chance.

Hippysmack, I wish I could post pictures on this site! Rest assured, my precious pinion gear is in a secure place!
Boon did have some but I have been unable to find out what the colour coding meant for 88-90. I eventually found
a NOS pinion that matched my engine.

John, the MK1 Evos had a relief valve built into the oil filter housing. You can see a large nut under the filter housing
behind the oil pressure switch - it dumps excess oil pressure into the cam chest. It is much like the BT relief valve in
that it uses a plunger and spring. It is designed to limit wear on the pump, drive etc. It was deleted later as part of HDs
improvement programme (to save money). Duker had issues with it blowing too easily which is not good, so he installed
a much stronger spring. While Tore et al pressure tested theirs then rerouted the oil blow off to the oil tank to make life easier
for oil scavenging. It makes sense to at least replace the 30 year old spring and inspect the plunger for wear.

Yes, I was referring to my 1991, which may have one as well. Never been able to confirm. I think it's only observable if the cam cover is off, which I've never done. It's positioned horizontally (parallel to filter axis) rather than vertically as on the 86-90 models.

Well you learn something new everyday! Does it show up in the 1991 parts list?
And, if HD fitted one, when did they retool to eliminate it?

Yes, it's internal on a 91.

91 FSM:
High pressure oil, when cold, in the filter cavity, opens the pressure regulator. Oil flows into the gearcase then returns to the tank.

I haven't found it in the parts book yet though.


It shows a diagram of the path in figure 3-43
I can't scan it at the moment.

Not yet, but I have one coming. I'm going to photograph both the 82 and 89 and submit dimensions when the 89 gets here.

haven't seen it either, maybe hd considers it a non serviceable part.
the 86>90 shows it in the fsm and part of the removable adapter and the 91>03 shows it behind the spring/check ball and filter threaded adapter part of the right case. just by looks, appears to be the same, but i would not trust the hd graphics.
