07 Softail Deluxe- I had to pull my oil tank to replace my starter and when I pulled the lines out the retainers came with them, which might be a good thing because then I saw this rust that I otherwise wouldnt have seen. Is this normal? I tried using some WD40 & steel wool to clean the ports out but that wasnt as effective as I would have liked. Any suggestions?

I went ahead and tried to install one new Drag Specialty retainer but it apparently didnt seat all the way and when I removed it I found that the innermost O-Ring had broken in 2 places. The book doesnt say to lube the O-Rings when installing but maybe a dab of grease or Vaseline would help? I'm guessing these retainers are a one time use thing too?

Small diameter brass brush. It will take a while unless you put in in a drill. If you do use a drill, use slow speed. joe
