SOURCE: starter not always turning motor
Possible solution. You probably know that harleys, unlike almost all the others used a bendix type to shove the starter motor's gears into engagement with the starter clutch. Since you replace the solenoid, the thing that pushes the gears into engagement; the battery, that would push the starter motor if the gears were in engaagement; and the starter motor, which would turn the ring gear if it was in engagement. So wht's left? Unfortunately it sound like it might be the teeth on either the ring gear or the bendix gear, probably the ring gear as it was notoriously weak on iron sportys. Not a problem you want to try to fix at home unless blessed with tools, room and time.

You may have to take the breather off to get to the screw. Some of them can be difficult to get to. Standing on the right side of the bike looking down at the air filter, you can see the square looking top of the carb. On the right hand side of the carb near the top is the idle stop screw. Turn the screw clockwise to increase the idle speed.

I can help you with the wiring diagram but it will be the complete diagram. I have never seen just a turn signal only type wiring diagram. But, there's nothing to a '74 model Ironhead turn signal system.
All the wires for the system were gray but had these little "colored rubber bands" on the ends of the wires near the signal lights. The violet bands were for the left side and the brown bands were for the right side turn signals
Now, I cannot send the wiring diagram through this forum as it will not allow for an attachment. If you will contact me directly, I'll send you a wiring diagram as a jpeg attachment via e-mail. My address is email@example.com.
