I just pulled the wheel bearings to refresh them and was depending on the work shop to tell me witch way the spacer goes in. There is a long side and a shorter side. In the manual, it does say that the longer end goes to the speedo drive side but this is for the pre 1971 models with a double row ball on the brake side. It does not say if it is different for the 71 and on model I am working on. The hand make drawing is not anything one could go by in the parts book or the shop manual. Anyone know for sure? I am guessing that the long side still goes in the speedo side because I remember it sticking out just past the bearing. Once you have pressed in the bearings you can't have them out again without destroying them.
