The rear pulley alignment was set at the factory and was designed into the machine before it ever hit the assembly line. Unless you or someone else has changed something on the bike, all you need are the stock parts that came of the bike for the rear pulley to line up. If you are making some sort of modification, you may indeed have to use a spacer. I may or may not be able to help you with that information. The question is "does the rear wheel, just the pulley or the pulley and the wheel need moving"? I also need to know what year and model bike you're working on.

Good Luck
Steve

Idler Pulley replacement


there is normally a spacer on the bolt that positions the pulley the correct distance to miss the mounting bracket. IT sits between the bracket and the inner race of the bearing and locks that race so that the bearing can operate correctly.

I need to know rear wheel spacer placement. also where to rreference to align the rear wheel. it seems i have un equal space between the wheel and fender. i have a total of three spacers two on the pulley...


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

Ak38001 admiral washer need to replace drive belt


To change the drive belt you must unplug the washer and lay it forward on its front. Put some cardboard down so not to scratch the paint. Remove the two screws holding the rear panel and remove panel. Undo two bolts holding the pump on. There are three bolts holding the transmission into the washer. Locate the one bolt which has a spacer between the transmission and the post under the transmission. Remove the silver spring at the corner of the transmission. Remove the belt from the large silver pulley.
You will notice the part with the two coils called the wig wag. Under the left coil is a flat shaft. Rotate the large pulley to advance the flat shaft till its as far forward as possible. Insert a large screwdriver into the slot of the flat shaft until it comes out of the vertical shaft that it is inserted into by rotating the pulley with the screwdriver inserted into the slot in the shaft. Drop the vertical shaft till it almost comes out of the slot of the transmission it is inserted into. Tap the gray yoke off the top of the vertical shaft to allow enough room to slide the belt out. Slide the belt from where you removed the transmission bolt and spacer. You should now be able to remove the belt.
Slide the new belt through the space where the bolt and spacer was removed.
Slide the belt through where the vertical shaft was lowered.
Position the belt around all pulleys except the pump pulley.
Reinstall the transmission spacer and bolt.
Reinstall the flat shaft through the vertical round shaft by lining the flat shaft with the slot in the vertical shaft and rotating the large silver pulley until the flat shaft goes all the way through the vertical shaft.
Tap the yoke back into the top of the vertical shaft with the white plastic clip.
Reinstall the spring.
Line the pump pulley behind the belt and make sure the pump activator is positioned into the groove of the flat shaft controlled by the wig wag.
insert the two pump bolts.
You should be ready to go.
