1968 HD FLH Shovelhead
Replaced same carb. On a 1968 FLH Shovel head HD. RUNS GREAT. I got tired of tearing apart the old one. It can be a pain installing the throttle cable. I used 4 small cable ties too collapse the large spring. Once you get the cable in and locked, cut the cable ties. Screw on the cap and mount it.
Homemade carburetor strap from rocker box to filter bolt. Idle and air mixture screws on front side.
Fuel line on back side.
