Absolutely right TSD   But the original question was which side the nut should be Sprocket or Brake And assuming theres room it won't matter which way its fitted The spindle type i have is with chrome end with use of tommy bar and wrong for the F2( although fits ) The F2 should be a long bolt type and seems Nut  side to sprocket There is confusion within the parts book showing nut to sprocket and  service manual showing nut to brake?? As i  have no idea what the previous owner has done Just asking for clarification of nut position

Picking my words carefully  My rear wheel spindle measures from under the head a tad over 10.1/2 inches Approx Just under 27cm

Just had a look at DSS and they list two types  The type i have (chrome end for tommy bar ) is for the  F & F1  The long bolt type Julie has is the correct type / style for the F2 Although the parts manual lists this as fitting F & F2 So i guess they are interchangeable as the bearings are the same for both   Ross

AS you say if it does the job I will fit it as i see fit, then fit exhaust,  If it needs turning round no probs

Who's right and Who's wrong That is the question???  lol  TrickyMicky has an early 400 with footrests on the arm and his spindle is the same as mine His arm are closed ends Mine are open end  So maybe i have the early style spindle with later style arm !!!!! Parts catalogue shows both type arms but only one type spindle?Don't know why ??

So you can still insert a tommy bar without fouling the exhaust??  Or was the wheel fitted then the exhaust

Just found in Haynes manual page 97 section 7-1 It states Pull out the spindle with the drive side adjuster and spacer As Trickymicky states would make it difficult fitting a tommy bar to assist removal

So to conclude   It won't matter which way the spindle fits if you have open-ended swing arm  But if closed end Nut on brake side so spindle drawn out nearside. Think i will fit nut to brake side although i have open-ended arm

Just fitting a new rear  sprocket and it seems a lot of play Not much rotational just a little bit of movement within the bolt holes of the sprocket The bushings seem ok But lateral play there is at least 1/8" old money Is this the norm ???    Also the rear spindle The PO has put it with the nut on the sprocket side Looking in the parts catalogue thats right   Yet in the service manual shows nut on brake side which i believe to be correct Your thoughts appreciated Cheers Ross

It was really quick. Luckly all still fresh in my mind around a couple hours give or take Hardest part was lifting the engine and turning it over and round  A bit of a lump ??  Ross

 Engine split, Seal fitted, and all back together.  Thanks for your advice   Julie  and Roy  It had to be done properly. Didn't dare risk it, then have to pull the motor out thanks again  Ross

Luckily I've got time on my side and not in a rush  Just that the manuals are very vague and not fully informative  Not like the forum   Your right Julie  do it once and do it right  Better to find mistakes at this stage   Least i can leave the Barrels and Head on Ross

Engine rebuild coming on fine, after Head rebuild and rebore by Trigger.  Just one problem I didn't fit the right hand crank seal before bolting the cases back together. I now not sure which way it fits. Logic says looking at it , the metal side out. Is this correct ?
Thanks Ross
