Default Spacer width size to replace speedo drive unit?

Took off and traded my speedo unit. Prolly should have measured it first. Now I can not line the wheel up with any spacer combo I have.

Here is what I was able to dig up but not sure if it is correct. Or what it means I need to do.

H-D's sizes for units are: .523", .789", .823", .940", & 1.114"
OEM# 67127-84A


87-95 narrowglide It's .940 overall.
It has a .361 spacer where it fit into the wheel? Is that in the overall spec?

If any one has info on the speedo size vs how to set up the stock 19" mag without speedo It would be much appreciated.

Does any one know what set up I need here? To run stock narrow 1989 mag with no speed drive.

From what I can tell i need to find a .275 ish for the right and a .970 for the left? Just got back from the HD shop with another wrong set of spacers.

Or if any one can tell me what the stock spacer should be, or if the size of speedo drive is correct in op.

"Okay, now I understand you have the speedo drive from the 84-94 Sportster.
My book says that speedo drive is .940 overall length also."

Your axle should be stepped so that there is not a spacer on the right side originally.

For the midglide, you should have
fork leg
.75 on the right
the wheel
.940 spacer or .94 speedo drive
.75 on the left.
fork leg

From another post. No way .75 on each side plus .940 on left will fit?

No speedo at all. Trying to figure out the size of the speedo I removed so I can replace it with the correct spacer and run the mag wheel. And if the speedo had the spacer built in or not as I do not have the unit anymore.

Im starting to wonder if the axle is the wrong year. Think it is a 91 if that matters. I was told they were the same til 04 I believe.

I'll take pics today and measure the axle and try and find ref some where as well.

Damn. Was working on one this weekend, but won't be home again until Friday. Mine is a 91, and I can measure for you this weekend, if that is not too late. If you don't get what you need before then, PM me just before the weekend and I'll measure for you.

ok nobody here is what i got.

right side speedo drive is .750 over-all with a shoulder of .310 wide that slips into the seal area.
left side spacer is .367 over-all, the spacer has a small .065 flange that tucks under the seal. i hope this helps.

Thanks! I'll get out here and give that a look. I know the speedo side was just over 1" by my guess so that looks right on.

I measured on my '91 this weekend (1200) and the overall width was 0.930", including the part that slips into the seal.

i guess i should have mentioned it is on a 74 ch with spoke wheels. also, but not included is the thickness of the caliber anchor which shouldn't matter to your setup.

I came up with 1.600 as the total spacer/speedo space, inclosing the offset space on axle of .425 at the right side.

So at .930 that would leave .245 for the right side. Just small enough to fit in the seal recess it looks like. Might even be washers? Does that ring a bell?

With a single disc 19" mag wheel? I came up with around .800+ So .930 looks like the best fit here.

So did you happen to measure the right side spacer then? Is it . 245 or .375 do you know?

Yeah the spoke wheels are dif. Also think the year range on the axle and speedo drive is 84-04.
