Put the filter in the return line from the oil pump to the tank.

Your picture shows a Softail, so I'm assuming you have the Softail battery cooker oil tank. Staring at the side of the oil tank from the starboard side of the tank, the left most line is the main oil feed (actually separated from the other two) and then the middle is the vent and the right most is the return from filter.

Here's from the HD Service Manual of a FL/FX although all the Evos are pratically the same with the exception of what the oil tank looks like. Let me know if you need more clarification.
