OK got the parts and now am more confused. Without the step washer in I have about .02 end play, i put the step washer in and have all kinds of end play, definatley more than .02 and .06. Should I leave the step washer out and figure the inner spacer is set like this at the factory or am I supposed to have some wiggle in the axle?

This is an Ultima 60 spoke with the tapered bearings and i do have the inner spacer in.

Did you do that with non greased bearings?

The proper way is to take the measurements with no grease on the bearings.

Whats the part # on that wheel ? Me, I would have the spacer turned down the thickness of the step spacer + .010, so you can add some shims. Cause if you plan on keepin the bike, and you ever have to change bearings and races it gives you some wiggle room cause the endplay will change. And use the later yrs. endplay specs.

Unless Ultima sets the endplay with just the spacer, youd think they would specify this in the catalog. Was their a tag tied to the spokes that had an endplay spec wrote on it. But like I said, if you ever change bearings & races, that .002 could end up .020.

I called Jireh Cycle and they said they have never added a step washer or shim to those wheels when putting them on bikes. They grease and put axle thru and run them. There has to be others out there running these wheels.

That's actually how Harley spaced the bearings out years ago, they had different length spacers, they then switched over to shortened spacer and a shim pack.

What Im sayin is, If he ever changes bearings, and races, hes got no room to shim the bearings cause of the length of the spacer. They never come out the same, (changed bearings & races in a set of H-D cast wheels, and had to remove shims in both wheels.)
So his spacer will be to long.
