There is a wiring diagram in the riders hand book. If you get a riders handbook, it shows all connections from the wiring harness.

Would like to find year of transmision

Depends on year, and type (4 speed, 5 speed, 6 speed, 3 speed with reverse, etc)

In 1962 Harley started stamping numbers on the transmissions (back then, the 4 speeds).
It's an alphabetical letter code followed by three or four digits.
CODE A-B = 1962-1963
CODE B-C-D = 1964
CODE C-D =1965
CODE D-E-F-G = 1966-1967
CODE J-K-L = 1969
CODE K-L = 1970

From 2000 on the transmission number system was year then 6 digit sequential transmission number, ie. 02 000123 would be a 2002 trans., 123rd built.

This should only be used as a guide only. Even Harley-Davidson admit there are some discrepancies in their numbering systems.

Harley davidson FLHRCI speed sensor

Hi Anonymous, always check your instrument fuse before performing the next procedure, try cleaning your speed sensor located on top of the transmissions right side between the top cover and the chrome starter end cap on Twin Cams and on top of the engine case between the rear cylinder and the starter motor for Sportsters. Remove the the bolt that secures the sensor and pull it out of the transmission. Inspect sensor for obvious damage and repace if necessary. If sensor has no damage then wipe clean any obvious contamination like micro fiberous material with a clean rag and reinstall, torque bolt to 8 ft lbs.

Page 6-4 from 79 fx harley davidson superglide manual got messed up. need info on clutch adjustment.

Loosen the cable adjustment that's on the right side of the bike just behind the starter solenoid. Turn the adjuster in a good bit. Remove the derby cover and loosen the lock nut in the center of the clutch assembly. Turn the adjusting screw inwards or outwards to adjust the position of the clutch release arm. Seems like 1979 was a transition year in which they changed the type of transmission that was used in the bike. The early models used the rotary top transmission and the late models used the rachet top (cow pie) transmission. If you have the rotary top transmission, adjust the center screw of the clutch until the gap between the starter and the release lever measures 3/8" to 5/8". If you have a ratchet top (cow pie) transmission, set the gap between the release lever and the small diameter section of the top of the shifting mechanism at 13/16". Once you get this set, go back to the cable adjuster and turn it outwards until you have about an 1/8" freeplay in the cable.

Good Luck

Trying to find out what sort of gearbox is in my harley

Got to be Harley and you got 4 speeds from 1940 to lets say early 70's or? Anyway they're all the same.Get the sprockets to line up and you're in.Old 3 speed removed and 4 speed put in.Might have had to rig up 4 speed tranny plate to frame but not much to that.
