The only Harley's that I had that leaked oil were a 1950 45 Two Wheeler. 1949 Panhead until I changed to a belt drive. Those early Harley's had a tin primary that was more of a dust cover. IMO

The biggest reason Old Harley's leaked oil was due to cheap asses reusing gaskets and stripped bolts and no lock washers.

Also mustn't forget to turn off the stupid chain oiler.

Old Harley tales die hard.
