The engine plates from this bike have the various spacers welded to the plates, so it is self-evident where each one goes, however having mounted the rear plates onto the crankcases and fitted the gearbox in situ, I note that the gap between the rear engine plates is 3 5/8" whereas the distance between the forged frame mount is 3 1/2", the right side mounting plate has a couple of thin washers welded to the inside of the plates, but are there 2 loose spacers that go in the gap on the left and how thick are they?
Regarding the front mounts, there is a hollow spacer that goes between the front engine mounts at the top where it goes into the frame lugs, is there an identical spacer for the bottom mounting?

Am I correct in assuming that the difference between the width of the rear frame mounting point and the gap between the plates from the thin washer, ie 3 5/8" minus 3 1/2 making 1/8th, needs two 1/8 loose spacers on the left engine plate? If this is the case I am surprised that they are not welded in place as the others are.
