1.),my 45 service manual ,page 84,item # 8 indicates a .006 to .010 connecting rod side play between flywheels
2.)page 60 of the 45 service manual,item #2 and item #3 further support the.006 to .010 connecting rod side play specification between the female connecting rod and the flywheel.
3.)the 45 performance book by Victory on page 39 of 54 in the section under "Connecting Rods'' states,"The female rod needs .020-.025'' side clearance between the flywheel halves.
4.)Page 54 of 54 of the 45 performance book by Victory has a spec table wherein the female rod end-play between wheels is .015 -.020
With new wheels, rods and bearings I was able to slip a .019 feeler gage between my female rod and the flywheel which I suspect should be between .006 to .010,but I am puzzled about the information from the 45 performance booka and have so much confidence in the 45 performance book that I have doubts about the factory manual.What is the correct side play between the female rod and the flywheel?Thanks for the help.
