    Hi, just preparing to fit my engine after a rebuild. The bottom spacer on my 1967 Rocket 3 measures 0.869″ Outside Diameter, 0.440 hole diameter, and the important thickness 0.287″

    regards Des.

    Hello Terry, I fitted my engine this afternoon and found fitting the bottom spacer was a bit trickey even though it was the original spacer. The front engine stud was in place but not tightened. The rear mountings were not yet fitted. Inserting the lower mounting stud I could not fit the spacer unless I spread the frame by a small amount. I would advise that the front and rear mounts are slackened completely and you add a generous chamfer on both sides of the spacer to assist its entry into the gap. I’m thinking if your bottom mount has been fitted without the spacer and tightened the frame rails may have been pulled together meaning you will need to spread them to get the spacer in the gap.

    regards, Des
