    So did some work on this today.
    Starter does not like being where is is so put some shims in it. Works a little better.

    Got a tilt wheel from a 73, yeah, so like tons of stuff is different. Starter switch is the same but backwards, wires will move to make it work. Turn signal wire connection is different too. So going to have to repin the whole thing

    Yup it is, more of just how they did it. I think it is because 73 was a first year thing.

    73 and 74 seem to be different on a number of things.
