i think the speedo drive has a little molded ridge on it which should slide into a slot on the fork leg, thus stopping the drive from spinning round the spindle. drop the front spindle out and align the drive correctly and then slide back the spindle and bolt it all up and you should be all good to go.

SOURCE: rear wheel spacer placement?
Take great care on reassembly ,as the spacers may be of diffrent lenghts which will if put back wrongly will throw the wheel off its true running centre .and cause problems .Allway remember to mark parts or do a drawing when removing and stripping down for repair or servicing ..It saves a great deal of problems .Try and assemble the spacers and look to see if the wheel is in line with the belt drives .

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.
