I'm thinking these cylinders are 63 to 65 for out-side oilier heads only.

I just did the top-end on my 68 FLH, and those cylinders where completely different than these ones.

Chubbles have a circular gasket surface.

The late Pan cylinders have slightly different finnage than earlier models as well.

I bought a set of jugs like those at a swap years ago, with no oil feed hole I had to have a machinist drill one. as I recall the hole had to be drilled from both ends because of a compound angle...Mike
