Green O-rings on bottom of Jug

07 Softail

Began assembly and I'm not feeling 100% on how many of the green o-rings there should be. Is there just the 1 per jug on the bottom around the dowel that is releaved around the base?? I looked at the manual it shows one but the part list shows 2 ...also is that the only place they go..none up top between jug and head?

Thanks for the help

You just have one small o-ring per jug on the base . You are right that they go on the dowel with the relief around it (the oil returns through these two dowels). You also have the large o-ring that seals the base of the jugs to the case. Not sure about the 07's but all the previous year twincams also have one o-ring each on the oil return dowels at the top of the jugs. If you are using a multi layer steel (MLS) head gasket like Cometic you don't use the o-rings on the top dowels. These head gaskets have a built up area around the dowels that seal them.
