Default JMC Swing arm

Hi all . does anyone have a JMC alloy swing arm fitted ? I recently got a used one but it has no spindle just the arm and eccentrics , I cant work out how they get the rear wheel to clamp together , and whether the eccentrics are supposed to have the "step" to the inside or outside of the arm..any help or pics would be even better and much appreciated

Search on line for JMC Harley swing arms.
I tried but blocked for being in France.

Hey that would be great , I have looked all over and most pics are either the stock advertising pic or if fitted to a bike its just a picture of the bike and doesn't show what connects to what !
Thanks

Quite a few people have had very long waits for JMC swinging arms in the past. Don't know if things have got better now

There is a guy on here who has a chrome one but, I can't remember his forum name. He had an older mustang and use to post a lot but, I don't think I've seen much of him lately. I'll try to track down his name.
