    Robbie, You may have explained my '71 FLH. I bought mine 11 years ago from 2nd owner after he had passed. His wife tried to explain but could not 100% remember why the bottom end was replaced.......with a '79, vin 2AxxxxxH9 (yikes to Jerry's comment). Maybe not the best year; but, she's had no real issues. I've kept her adjusted, well oiled and under 65mph. William

    79s were the worst year as far as quality issues go. I did more warranty paperwork that year than any other by a huge margin. Overall, most of the cone Shovels were poorly made machines, and personally, I think the Sportsters were worse.

    Thanks Jerry and Rubone for the info. I also had a 1976 Flh and after trying different timing settings, carb adjustments, plugs by both me and the dealer it still would not run right. A lot of pinging and not even under load. I had to go to the airport and run 1/2 avgas in tank to be able to ride it.

    It sound like your advance mechanism was frozen in the full advanced position, another common problem.

    Hey Michael, an AMCA member was selling a 1974 OP/rebuilt FLH Striper for $9500.00 This just about less than a month ago. It's currently listed on Craigs List, and in the wonderful state of Maine. Listing is *(1974 Harley Davidson FLH). Also, it was listed in the AMCA for sale ads. Good Luck. *M.A.D.*
