    My FIRST thought IS? Did it have the proper level of Primary/tranny Lube in it.. If it didn't have a gasket? It should of been Pouring out the oil..

    OR does it have a permanent gasket Built into the primary?...

    Welcome to the HDTalking Forum and your first post...the part number you are looking for is: 25463-94A. Use a bit of grease to "stick" it in place...

    kane2727; did you look closely at the old derby cover to ensure the gasket wasn't stuck on it, or maybe it fell out somewhere? The little rubber ring gasket isn't very visible & there should've been some leakage under bike if it wasn't in place.

    Check the fluid level & if it's good there's probably no harm done.
