Hi everyone,
I have a set of BT springers to fit replace telescopics. Trouble is I can't figure out the assembly sequence of the front axle, spacers, bearings etc. I'm using a mechanical front brake. Can anyone post a diagram?

Thanks Johnny
Flat black'll get you back!

Slowrider: Get a copy of the 1940=1947 service manual HD still sells them and the pics are good. The sequence is 1, mount the brake backplate. there is a spring to keep it from rattling. The inner spacer go's thrugh from the brake side. 2, put the drum on and slip the wheel in and onto the sleeve in the back plate. 3, slip in the spacer and line up the axle. Thats it. Pics is better. :)
