The last time I replaced the front motor mount on my '85 FXRS, I did a lot of research on this forum and across 'net. I found a lot of information and recommendations. I didn't need to find the cheapest/least expensive item so I decided to try something new and went with one of these:
https://www.kineticstructures.com/harley-engine-motor-mount
I've put 20,000 mi on it so far and have to say I'm perfectly satisfied. My memory is that just the new front mount provided a great improvement over the one that was on the bike at that point in time. It was somebody's black rubber product but I don't remember who I got it from. It was in very poor condition and needed to go.
In the interest of full disclosure I have to add that right around that same time frame, I replaced the factory original rear isolators as well, pulled a crappy pair of Progressive shocks, replaced them with Pro-Action shocks and replaced the old  "Velva-ride" stabilizer links that I had put on a lot of years back( and have been satisfied with) with new ones of the same manufacture.
At the end of the day....I have a 36 yr old FXRS that will run 90 mph down the interstate and be smooth enough to read the front license plate in my rear view mirror on cars coming up next to me.  :bike:
Happy Guy.

Man I'm slow today, lol. I'll look at the wiring diagrams, if I have them, in the morning. Those bikes are not very complicated.

Oh I read it the swap was the other way. Has that swap been tried?

Dirty connection?  Take the one from the heritage and try it on the custom.

Did that no difference. Worked on it again today to make sure all the connections were right. Still scratching my head. Thanks for the input.

From my European pal Mullie, this is what I know:

Also, any pic of p/n 60497-80B that I have seen does indeed have slotted holes in the front. But what do I know? Never seen one in person. Just a internet educated fool. Like Turbo says.
 :SM:

But in fact, if you think about it, how could they not? If mine had them, could have actually installed a new belt. But kind of glad I couldn't, happier without.

#12 goes in after the spring and before the snap ring and the lip is towards you. I believe the lip fits inside the seated snap ring.

You already have your answer.  :nix:

Maybe I'm dense, bit how so? Neither module works on the Custom.

I've never seen an OEM adjustable primary.
I'm thinkin someone slotted them holes to try and fix something.
Now a tin primary would have a jack screw on the trans mount for chain tension.
Some of the belts had an adjustable roller in place of the chain adjuster, but that does not work well on a belt.
