I have a 70FLH in quite pristine condition that with the exception of relative hard shifting is a wonderful machine...
I was willing to ask the experienced ones two questions:
A) were 1970 machines somehow affected (design, materials, sub-suppliers) already by the brand new AMF management?
B) what is true behind the mythos of AMF period as the worse period? If indeed true, which were the most notorious weaknesses and which models and years were suffering them?
