    Hallo.
    I have SPORTSTER 883 - 1987 year. Im trying to resurrect my old sportster engine. I dont have much parts and must "organise" some of them.
    I have problem with special quad seal (oring between engine case and oil filter mount). I didn't see this oring before. Around oil entry to filter.
    What size is this seal? I need know dimensions.

    The info I have is relevant to a 1993 sportster but have previously worked on a 1987 and as I remember both are the same in the oil filter housing area and both take the same filter the only quad seal I can find is the one that is part of the oil filter so without more info I can only guess you need a new oil filter
