    Good to know I’m not completely crazy! I’ve got reasons to doubt the wiring on this bike, so I’m skeptical of every hiring while also aware of my own ignorance. Interesting place to be! Lol. ...

    Wiring the Coil on an FXS

    Rewiring an 80 FXS and got to the ignition coil. This bike is not stock so I’ve gotten accustom to finding interesting things. And I’m learning a lot as I go. Here’s the coil:

    Well, i did a little investigating. Without the AC mounting plate on, I can get a bolt in the hole. But it only turns 1-1/4 turns before stopping. So even with a longer screw I’ll only get 1-1/4...

    If I understand you, I don’t think that will work. The diameter of most of the hole is too wide to rethread it without a helicoil.

    Yup. That's my Plan B, or C, or whatever. If the longer screw and helicoil don't work, I'll either go this route or perhaps try and use a different carb altogether. But as I've rebuilt this Super...

    The helicoils for 1/4" bolts that I've seen use a 17/64" drill, which is .2656". So that's a little larger than that. I think I'll try to stay with the 1/4" bolts and use a 1/4' helicoil, just to...

    Yeah. Trying to avoid dropping $200+ on this. I’d rather find a used one at a swap meet for $50 before doing that. If I spend $200, I’ll replace the carb entirely.

    That’s going to be the challenge. I don’t have a drill press. Might have to check out the local motorcycle collective nearby (they rent bays and tools) to see if they have one.

    Thanks. I was wondering how to handle the fact that it is a blind hole and may need a shorter coil. Iíve never used them before and while they donít look difficult, itís good to understand the...

    It is 1/4 inch X 20 X 1/2 inch screw. I could probably use a helicoil Although I am a little worried about whether the hole is stripped wider than the 17/64” hole that the quarter inch Helicoil...
  12. Options for missing threads on Super E air cleaner bracket hole

    Referring to the carb body in the pic below, the left threaded hole (at nine o’clock) in the body of my Super E is missing threads. Some are in there, but they are much deeper in than those in the...

    Of course, it has to be installed correctly, too. There’s a lesson here in not trusting that a prev owner did ANYTHING properly on a bike you acquire.

    Thanks for the help, gents.

    I didnít see an orientation for the battery in my shop manual. Saw a lot of stuff on how to test the electrical system, though! Iíll look again tomorrow, too.

    I’m thinking you’re right. One other thing: is your positive terminal closer to the motor or the rear fender? I had the positive to the rear, right under the cross member of the frame. Putting it...

    Shovelhead Battery Fitment

    So I have a 1980 Low Rider (FXS). When I pulled the battery out, I noticed that the spacing between the terminals and the frame was incredibly tight. I got sparks because the positive terminal kept...

    Do you have to seal it? I haven’t heard anything good about any sealant when running these modern ethanol fuels. Why not just leave it clean, fill it and add a little stabil?
