SOURCE: Rear Wheel Alignment

In regards to the front wheel, there is little or no adjustment to align it to the frame assuming that the fork tubes and triple trees are not tweaked/bent or loose and that things are torqued to specks. The unit in the bottom pic gets installed on the rear wheel, in other words the rear wheel is between the two plates in that pic. The dowel with the black sleeve goes through the spokes while the lower one goes beneath the tire to hold it in place.The yellow velcro strap holds the two halves tight to the wheel once installed. The brake pedal is applied to hold the wheel from rotating when it is in proper position.The two rods slide into the ends of those plates and extend forward to the front wheel to center the rear wheel using the adjusters on the rear wheel/axle. You can also use a wire like a wire coat hanger to make a jig to measure to the center of the rear axle forward to the swing arm bolt center. Take a straightened out piece of hanger and put a small "L" on the end of the wire about 1 1/2 " that would go into the center/indentation in the swing arm bolt. Use a small "O" ring or the like as a slider on the wire and slide it to the center of the axle once the forward end is in place in the center of the swing arm. Measure both sides and adjust accordingly to get them even. This is done also keeping the belt tension in mind too. This system works for most but using the setup that I have, the measurement is much more fine/accurate in that you are extending the rods to the front wheel and turning the rear axle adjusters 1/2 turn will see a big difference when extended 8' or so to the front wheel. I think you can see where I'm going here. Your best bet is to look in the factory manual, it describes the procedure pretty well.

SOURCE: i need to know rear wheel spacer placement. also

The wheel not being equally spaced under the fender is typical of all Softail motorcycles. They have an "offset" wheel stance. I don't know exactly why but they are designed this way.

The three spacers you are talking about is actually one spacer and two seal races. The two seal races go into the wheel bearing seals on either side of the wheel. This provides a smooth finish for the wheel bearing seals to ride on. The other "spacer" is a bit larger and goes on the belt side of the wheel and the rear brake caliper bracket acts as the spacer on the other side. Anytime you take the wheels off your bike, always mark and make a drawing of the positions of the spacers.

Good Luck

What is clicking noise that seems to be coming from the driver's side wheel?

Check out your constant velocity joint on that wheel. If the boot is broken and debris has gotten in there it is possible that the joint is damaged and ready to go. When it does, You stop going!!!!!!! Engine will rev but no power to wheel.

Noise most pronounced when you make a turn and joint is under stress.

Why do Both my back wheels turn in opposite directions

Hi Anthony. This is a reaction called "Torque" Commonly, most rear wheeled vehicles have what is called "Limited-Slip Differential" What happens is, as the vehicle makes a turn, the inside rear wheel rotates slightly slower than the rear wheel on the outside of the turn. This ensures even power distribution to the rear wheels from the transmission. If you have a "Positive Traction" (Posi) rear wheel drive, then when you accelerate, both wheels turn at the exact same rotational time. The consequence of this is, when you turn, you will hear a rear tire squeal on the pavement. There is also the "Semi-Posi" that acts like an Limited-Slip, until you apply power. Then the rear wheels turn at the same rotation, but only under power. To experience what it would be like if all wheels turned the same direction at the same time, find someone with a 4 wheel drive (4x4) with manual hubs, and on pavement put it in 4 low and try to turn. 2 of the tires will squeal on the pavement, and you will notice it will slow you down very quickly during a turn. I hope this gives you the info you wanted. ^^

Engine runs fine but car wont go. The main gear spins when i rev it but the clutch bell doesnt

When the engine is started the pisten goes up and down which in turn turns the engine shaft which then spins the clutch shoes around to a point where force pushes them out to touch clutch bell, clutch bell then spins spur gear. in order for spur gear to turn the clutch bell would have to turn to. If this is happening check the dog bones that go into transmission are all ok. Lift car of of ground and spin rear wheels to see if front wheels turn and spur gear.

its a wheel bearing. .will need to be inspected to determine the correct one. Also tires could also do this if the steel seperated internally. Rotate the suspected tire to see if it follows the tire.

Definitely clean your carburetor, and do it very thoroughly... Try lifting the rear wheels off the ground and revving it, or rev it with the choke on, see if that helps. If either of those help you are definitely starved of fuel (or air), but most likely fuel. Good luck

I have a 2003 chevy blazerthat has power steering problem no leak

There is a "pressure regulator" located in the pump just behind the high pressure line that directs high pressure fluid to the steering rack when you turn the steering wheel. It sounds like the regulator valve is sticking and not sending the high pressure fluid to the steering rack when you turn the wheel.
You can remove the pump and clean the valve, reinstall the pump and flush the steering system with fresh fluid or replace the pump and flush the system with new fluid.
Good luck.
