OK I need some help, I am putting in a new oil tank and I wanted to make sure I hooked the oil lines to the right place. (feeder, return and breather).
If you can point me to a diagram or picture I would appreciate it!

Thanx for any help..

The oil pump is under the cam cover on the right side so run the lowest output from the oil tank to that one. On top of the cam cover is the return so run that to an input on top of the oil tank. The breather is behind the rear cyclinder and run that to the top also. Not sure if you have a chain oiler but if you do it will be behind the return and I ran that from the output on the bottom of the oil tank. Some ironheads have a tube that runs off the return and works a a chain oiler.

This is how I routed my 61. Hope this helps.
