Installing a stock oil tank on a 1974 shovel and it looks like removeing the rear fender isent enough , seems like i also have to remove the starter , outer primary , clutch and hub , and inner primary , been about 15 years since ive done one of these , anyone here done one of these recently ?

My bike is a '84 FXE and I recently had the oil tank out to reinstall the starter after having it be kick only for a few years. I was able to reinstall the oil tank from the right side of the bike with the electric starter completely installed. I removed the rubber tank mounts and just worked the oil tank mount tabs over the frame mounts, first one then the other. There was just enough room, hopefully your '74 will be similar.
