I'd try the crankcase vent if the oring doesn't hold.

This is on a S&S but should be the same for the Ultima. Note the green line...

Red-Feed line from tank to pump.
Yellow-Pump to oil filter input, inside port closest to crankcase.
Purple-Return line from filter to oil tank. From center of oil filter.
Blue-Vent to oil tank.
Green-Open crankcase vent

The only problem I have with uncorking the crankcase plugs is that the Ultima engines come with the newer style nose cone. (93-99)

that can lead to abnormal oil spewing from the crankcase vent hose.


I know S&S recommends running both vents.

Ultima does not.

well...i always did put it spring in and the mechanic did say spring out...but you must remember .....these are HD dealer mechanics that have ZERO open primary experience...so i went by everything i read and by people like MrScary and Gypsy who say spring in..i just figured maybe i am doing something wrong and will give it another shot.....it only takes me 10min to change these things anyways!! a small leak does not bother me...i would rather have no leak...but when i changed it on the weekend i had a gusher!!

a thought, long time ago i had a set of cases the main bearing insert where its casted into the case actually was tiny tiny bit loose, with heat it became more apparent, also putting a pipe on the sprocket shaft with nothing to block view ie pulley off ect the play was there to see, again just a thought

I thinking of trying the vent hose. I picked up an o-ring, a vent(little baby air cleaner lookin thing) and the extended fitting for the crankcase as well a new seal. If I point the hose straight up, will there still be a spewing issue? Also I spoke to local mechanic today about my problem. He said to try the vent. He also mentioned the possibilty of what EnglishJoe said.......Man I hope that ain't the case.

Not sure. Give it a shot and let us know.

It's a relatively cheap experiment.

Just a thought, is it possible that the front pulley nut is being overtightened on the crank causing too much pressure against the seal? Does everybody use a torque wrench to tighten the nut? I've seen lots of guys use impact wrenches.

I may be wrong, but the front pulley essentially is being pressed against the spacer which is inside the seal.........no? BTW, I do use a torque wrench each and everytime.

I dont have a spacer on mine. My pulley fits against the rotor, which is up against the seal. I wasn't directing my comments at you, BTW, I was just thinking in general. Lots of people have had this problem, and I'm wondering what the common cause, if any, could be.

Na man, I know what you mean. I was saying, inside the rotor it actually rides against the spacer which spins inside the seal. So I think there shouldn't be excessive stress no matter how tight the nut.........again...think, not sure though.
