Replacing a coil is one of the simpliest jobs on a Harley. You've only got four connections. Two of them are spark plug wires and it makes no difference which wire goes to which cylinder as the Harley ignition system is a "dual fire" type system. Both spark plugs fire at the same time every time a piston comes to top dead center.
On the other two connects, the small primary connections, these make no difference either as the coil in a non-polarized type coil.
So, nothing to it, just make sure you are using the correct coil for the bike. The primary resistance of the coil should be about 3-4 ohms for your electronic ignition system. Simply unbolt the old coil and bolt in the new one.

Testimonial: "Thanks so much man!"
I think you can find the oil drain on the left side of the bike down low on the frame right behind the engine. It's a large diameter hose that plugs onto a stub on the frame. Some are located just below the battery tray and some are lower on the frame down by the rear of the primary case. Drain the oil, change the filter, refill with oil, and you're ready to go.
If you want to change the transmission oil/ primary oil, the drain is underneath the bottom of the primary at the very rear of the primary.
Three quarts of engine oil and a quart of primary/transmission oil.

Yes, there is oil in primary and transmission of your Sporty. To drain the oil, look for the drain plug on bottom of rear section of the primary area, back near the large round section of the primary. Drain the oil here and replace the plug. Add the oil at the top primary chain inspection port, large plug with a large "screwdriver" slot or two small bolts in it. Add 32-36 ounces of H-D "primary lubricant for Sportsters".
