Default 1975 Sportster 1000 Ironhead info

Can anyone tell me where I can find parts diagrams online (FREE) i.e. Engine, trans and possibly complete bike. I have HD manual but it seems pretty vauge and not many diagrams. Thanks
And when exactly did they change from right side to left side shift?

Home work completed.... Right to left shift in 1975.
So Im guessing my bike is a early 75 model as it is still right side shift.......
I did decode the engine VIN, 3A43812H5, with stars at the beginning and end.
And it came out as a 1975 XLH. So thats why I was a little confused about the shifter change.
THANKS for the link, bmxatv.
BTW this is my 1st Harley and it a basket case.....

Click the image to open in full size. I had a late 75 that shifted on the left. Switched it back after I bought it. As I remember they wanted all bikes to shift and brake on the same side.
