The ez out is a good suggestion. but depending on bolt size and location, if might be hard to drill the pilot hole for the ez out. i have been using this proceedure for a long time and yet to have a failure. i take a nut with a hole big enough to just about to cover stuck bolt and use a mig to weld the nut to the stuck fastener through the hole and then quickly wrench the fastener out. the welding heat helps the removal process. shield the surrounding area with wet rags and to protect the point of weld, use heat sink putty available from welding supply to form a dam around the area. you can also use the putty to hold nut in place. if you get in a bind, play dough will work on a short order basis. if the fastener is sunk to deep you prpbably will need the ez out. other than that, remove fork from frame and bring to machine shop.

Will the "Derby Cover" off


No, the '91 to '93 models have a small two bolt "inspection plate" type cover where the '94 and later models have a large four bolt cover according to my manuals.

How to remove starter on 1976 sportster


To remove the starter motor from you Ironhead, look at the rear of the starter motor. There are two "nuts" holding the end cap on. These are not actually nut but very long bolts. By removing these two bolts, you can pull the starter out of the starter drive housing.

But, the long bolts also hold the starter together. You have need to be careful when you take the starter out as it will fall into four pieces. The front bearing plate, the armature, the field windings, and the end plate with the brushed on it. If you're not familiar with fooing with starters, the brush plate can be confusing to get back on the end of the starter.

The starter on your '76 Sporty should be the Hitachi type starter.

1993 Sportster air cleaner


I assume you are talking about the 3 inner bolts that hold on the filter? If so I would advise using a cutoff tool like a dremel or air grinder cut off wheel and cut the head off the bolts or nut then remove the rest when you take off the filter.
