Question about 1993 Harley Davidson FLSTF Fat boy
Well, I won't ask why but you can purchase an aftermarket kit to do this with. You'll have to take the sensor plate and "timing cup" out of the timer cavity on the right side of your engine. Replace the timer cup with a mechanical advance unit. Then, you put the points breaker plate in and set the points to 0.020". Set the timing by bringing the front piston to top dead center and align the timing mark in the timing hole on the left side of the engine. Adjust the breaker plate so that the points just barely break at this point. This is close enough to get the engine started but you still need to set the advanced timing using a strobe light. You'll have to change the ignition coil as well. The coil on your bike is intended for use with an electronic ignition. The coil for a points system must have a primary coil resistance of 5-6 ohms. Simple purchase one for an early model bike like a 74 model Shovelhead. A word of advice. If you're going to do this, purchase the needle bearing mechanical advance unit. The others only last a couple of years before they're worn out.
