Run a wire from the postive side of the battery to the top side of the coil. There should be two white wires on the top side of the coil and a black wire on the bottom. Once there, you can kick start the bike. If you want to use the electric starter, pop the rubber boot off starter solenoid and jump from the large top lug to the small lug in the middle to engage the starter.

Or, you can purchase an aftermarket switch and change out the switch. You need a 6-lug switch for you 78.

Harley davidson 78 shovelhead diagnose and repair manual


Hi, Joseph the vast majority of service, parts, and owners manuals on the internet are "FREE" to download and all service manuals contain wiring diagrams in the back pages. The rest usually charge a modest fee around $10 and there is a handful of rare, obsolete, and very old models that are no longer available. Most of the manuals will cover your exact make, model, and year otherwise one will be provided that comes as close as possible to your bike and will have most of the same info that an exact manual would have. To download your manuals please click on the blue links below and for more specific information or questions at no charge please feel free to contact me at xlch@mail.com. Good luck and have a wonderful day.

I have a 72 shovelhead engine and I want to know what type of spark plugs can I use in it instead of harley davidson and also what would be the best oil to use in it instead of harley davidson also? About...


try this for your plugs - might give a couple of options. maybe a later one will do?
http://www.harley-performance.com/harley-spark-plug.html
Amsoil 20w-50? Depends where you are and what you can get. I think there is a rev-tech oil to suit your shovel, but can't remember the spec off hand. Havoline 20w-50? Oil debates seem to rage on forever on most H-D forums around the world. Have found for me the H-D stuff is about the same price as the rest, and just as good/bad as them.
As for quantity, I'm thinking it is about 31/2 to 4 quarts, as you said.
Check these guys out - maybe better answers than mine mate. http://www.shovelhead.us/
Hope this helps you.
