98 Dyna Wide Glide

Hello,

I'm reassembling my trans after replacing the main drive gear, and I've noticed that my transmission sprocket spacer (on main shaft, inboard of transmission sprocket) differs considerably from what is shown in the manual.

As you can see in the photo below, mine is about 1/2" wide where the one in the photo ("5") seems something over an inch wide. Another substantial difference is mine is concave on the end that abutts the quad seal, but the one shown in the manual is convex.



This shows what I believe to be the correct placement of parts relative to one another.



This shows the concave gring to my spacer.



I'm hoping for a good explanation from someone who's been there. Why the discrepency and am I okay with what I have?

Thanks!

You are correct. The stack is correct. Concave side in, just make sure the groove isnt too bad for the seal to ride on....Oh and i cant tell from your pic, but bevel side out on the snap ring.

Same problem

I have a jims tranny...6 speed...the spacer is beveled on the ID of the spacer, just like above. If I was to put the beveled side in towards the tranny and the square, flat, side towards the final drive sprocket nothing would be pushing on the seal that just fits over the shaft.
Should the beveled side be facing out towards the sprocket?
When I pull the spacer out , fluid pours out..is this normal?

Thanks Guys.....

The bevel side goes in, the bevel creates a small space for the quad seal, if you install the spacer with the flat side in, the quad seal would be squashed flat.

When you pull the spacer out, fluid pours out, yes this is normal because the spacer is also a seal.
