      Only use transmission cooler hose/line. Regular oil line will not last. Do not be surprised if it costs you $30 as the tranny line is extremely durable.

        I believe he's referring to the split lines from OLD-STF... I have a set of the stainless ones on a stroker shovel I ran for a little last year in my FLH after my original 80" blew a head gasket. Planning to install that engine in a roller I've been working on now that my 80" is running again. The quality was nice and I didn't have any issues with them fitting or after installing them. He makes them in the USA as well. Great to deal with and I have no complaints

          Oh, ya mean these? I have never been able to get them on and not leak... they simply just do not fit out of the box.

              Too many fitting to leak for me. If I was to modify the stock system I would block the hole in the rear rocker box and run a single line to a tee in between the rocker boxes in the middle.

                  Isn't that what the Old-stf setup does, but with longer lines? Same number of fittings though.

                    The stock layout has the least fittings far as I can figure...and I have never had a problem with it... except for implementing Restrictions, is better to restrict each input..

                      Sorry for not putting the image and if I refer to those, I put them but thinking about lubricating both heads (rockers) and having washers on them, when warming up or doing a few miles, I still have the tic tic tic and I use SAE 50 oil, thanks for responding.

                        Well, they feed the top end with oil so they do work but there was nothing wrong with the oem design as long as the little seals are installed right.

                            Go to Evo oiling, through the pushrods. Engines have had this setup for what, eighty years or so? Works for me. Even so, the stock setup doesn't need improvement anyway.
