Justified Tear down

Take it apart and do it right, don't assume the last guy did cause chances are he didn't. such is the case with my nearly 40 year old bike here.

what started out like this

without much work or time turned into this

time to start choppin!!

the lesson learned here- tons and tons of gooped on silicone, looks like there may be some chunks of paper gaskets here and there- total mess, also found a broken advance weight return spring, needless to say im going through it all

and maybe worst of all genuine HD "engineering"
going back to right side shift- should be interesting!

All you need for right side shift is the pre 75 shift rod and appropriate cam cover.
