This is a fairly involved job, but if you remove the battery, oil tank and related brackets, the starter can be accessed from there. Have you converted to electronic, single fire ignition? that is the best upgrade for your machine, you will never go back to points.

1977 sportster xlh 1000 starter


Hi Anonymous, it sounds the like starter drive/clutch has gone south, it has components inside, that when spinning, centrifugal forces cause them to grab or lock into permanently fixed counterparts. The gear only spins one way and locks the other way. If you have one that spins both ways it has failed and needs to be replaced. Please visit the web site below for more help and good luck.

Two things to check:

1. there is a 4 pin black starter relay maybe 1" cube, usually under the seat, that goes bad. since they are impossible to get from Harley, go to JPcycles.com and get a new one. I have to replace mine every year or so.

2. Disconnect the battery. Open the Starter's attached solenoid cover. There is a copper bar that gets pitted. If it hasn't been done before, flip it over. Otherwise try to clean it up. Replacing would be a good idea if you could find one. Otherwise buy copper stock from Mcmaster-Carr and make one.

It ain't easy owning an old school Sportster... It's an adventure!

Where is the oil filter on a 1979 harley sportster


Hi Anonymous, Believe it or not 1979 XLH 1000 did not have an oil filter from the factory. They made an accessory kit you could purchase seperately and install yourself. Have nice day.

Parts for 1979 harley 1000 starter


You can get all the parts you need for your starter from aftermarket supplies. The largest of the suppliers is V-Twin Manufacturing. You'll have to locate a V-Twin dealer. But, if you know what you need, try Jireh. They may have what you need. http://www.jirehcycles.com/ OR JP Cycles. http://www.jpcycles.com/Vintage-harley-parts

Good Luck
