What ever it is it sounds like the starter Bendix isn't engaging. Need to know if it is engaged by a solenoid or centrifugally engaged.

How to remove and replace a starter on a FXWG wide glide 1980 Shovelhead harley


To remove the starter from your Shovelhead, first disconnect the battery and take it out of the battery tray. Remove the battery tray, two bolts that bolt to the oil tank and the rubber mounts. Take the battery cable off the starter motor and take the bracket that supports the rear of the starter motor off. The bracket is bolted to the transmission and the rear of the starter motor. Take the remaining long bolt out of the starter. Work the starer out of the starter drive housing. Do not allow the starter motor to come apart as the two long slender bolts that you removed also hold the sections of the motor together. The same when you install the new motor. It will come apart and unless you've got some experience in getting the brush holder back on the armature, it can be a problem. Don't let the motor come apart.

I have a Shovelhead with a new 93" S&S and a 4


I don't know of anyone that makes a special starter shaft and it souldn't be breaking like that. You may have one of two possible problems.

Check the support for outer end of the starter shaft. The original outer primary has a bearing in it that supports the far end to keep it from flexing when it turns the engine over. Your belt drive should should have a starter shaft support that bolts to the inner primary to support the starter shaft on the outside end. Check it for alignment and make sure it's firmly attached.

The other problem could what I call "kick back". This occurs when the engine fires on the first upstroke of the piston and it actually turns the engine backwards against the starter. Shovelheads with the stock ignition were notorious for this if the initial timing was a set just a little too high. You didn't mention what type of ignition you have. Some electronic ignitions have a selector switch that you can choose between "electric start" and "kick start". The "electric start" position delays the spark from occurring until the engine has turned over three times. This gets those heavy flywheels turning and the engine will not kick back when it fires for the first time.

Also, if you're problem is with the over running clutch or "Bendix" as some people call it, make sure you are using a very high quality unit. I've seen lots of the Chinese made units fail prematurely.

I hope this helps.

Good Luck

1972 shovelhead harley-davidson engine rebuilt


Thirty over is nothing. I just finished a rebuilt on a 1970 model and we went 0.050" over on it. It was already at 30 over and the pistons scored.

Anyway, don't use one of these cheap Chinese made bendix's. Get an ACCEL. They may be made in China but they're better. You can't get good Shovelhead parts anymore.

Now, before you put the outer primary back on, use your hand and operate the fork that shifts the bendix into engagement with the ring gear. Does it engage like it's supposed to. You'll probably have to turn it just a bit. Now, do it again with the outer primary on. Does it still engage smoothly?

Now, here's the cause of most starter grinding problems on a shovel. The starter, ring gear, and outer primary are all out of alignment. The starter housing, the one with the big gear in it is supposed to have alignment pins in it as well as the outer primary. These pins are to ensure that the starter drive and the ring gear are properly aligned with each other. With the starter and outer primary on, you should be able to pull on the plunger of the solenoid and the starter drive engage fully and smoothly. Also don't forget the large brass washer. This keeps the drive from going too far.

If you're worried about low voltage, take the battery to an automotive parts store and ask them to load test the battery. If it drops below 10 volts, buy a new battery.
