Question about Harley Davidson FXR Super Glide Motorcycles
In 1978, Harley used Hitachi starter motors on all their bikes as best as I can remember. Either way, whether it's is a Prestolite or Hitachi starter, the brushes are connected in the same way. You have two brushes that connect to the battery cable post. The other two brushes connect to the field windings. They are soldered to the windings. Look for the solder joint on each field winding. Now, you said that the wires were all chewed up. This is because the starter apparently spun. Make sure the notches in the starter and the brush plate are in good shape when you put it back together. Here's a drawing of the starter but it's not very clear as to how the brushes connect.
