:confused: The distance between the pivot bearing and the alloy plate G50/1, is 7" and the distance across the nuts of the pivot axle only 6 3/4".
Can any one tell me if two 1/8" distance washeres should be fitted one each side between the nuts and pivot bearig/and G50/1 ????
The distances are correct, as the frame tie which sets the distance is
7 3/4", the steel pivot bearing measures 3/4" thus leaving the space too fit the rear frame 7" as measured.

There is a 1/4inch spacer(possibly F112 Russell should be able to tell you) between the rear frame and G50/1 and then a 5/8inch spacer between G50/1 and the footrest plate..No spacer on the drive side, the rear frame butts up against F103..I have a spare 5/8 spacer if you're desperate and may be able to machine a thin one if needed.John

comet rear frame

Thank's, John and Russell, that answers my question. I can make the distance pieces OK, but what was the material? Alloy Ok steel?
