Circuit Breaker Removal

Is it possible to remove my circuit breaker from my 62 FLH without taking off the front cylinder? I have a single point auto-advance unit on my bike.

My 61 has an aftermarket copy of the circuit breaker you describe.It will come out but just barely.You have to remove the points plate and advancer and turn it just right.

Is there any trick to it if I remove either the points plate or whole breaker unit so that I can get it timed correct when I reinstall it?

Mark everything before you take it out\apart.Setting ignition timing is pretty simple on those engines.
