Panhead, at the risk of changing the topic here, I noticed the spring that holds the circuit breaker in the advanced position. Do you retard the circuit breaker when you start the bike? Why use the spring rather than the hand control? Thanks.

pan50head,

Yes, I retard the circuit breaker when I start, but I do not have the original hand control (S&S carburetor therefor non-original handlebar).
Has anyone a picture of the trumpet horn in combination with the regulator?

Hello All, I think I figured it out. The front mount goes to the little bose in front of the dist. I had the wrong bracket in my hand for 2 days. Hope have this thing back together soon, just like a big puzzle and can't find the corners. Bob

Hello Drag pipe. The bracket you need for the dist side is a bracket with three holes and the end bent up with a drilled and taped hole.the bracket mounts on the raised boss next to the dist. then the rubber mount goes through the horn. Hopefully this helps. if not send me an email address and I will take a picture of mine Later Bob
