RPM gearbox install, clutch overhangs shaft?

I am doing the RPM gearbox install on a Revolt. I have it mounted and aligned. I just slid the pillow block over the input shaft and then slid the clutch on to get an idea how I am going to build the pillow block mount. With the clutch aligned With Redline tool 5/8" offset per manual. It overhangs the end of the shaft about an inch. I bought another RPM gearbox from a forum member off a redline for our other revolt and it has the same length shaft. Should I just make a spacer to extend the shaft? Any ideas?

The stock secondary clutch uses a 1" spacer on the end of the gearbox shaft. Then washers are used outside that spacer to space out the head of the bolt that holds the clutch onto the shaft so the clutch can be moved in and out slightly. The RPM gearbox also has to have a washer or spacer between the gearbox and the pillow block bearing to hold the sleeve into the seal on the shaft in the case.

Re: RPM gearbox install, clutch overhangs shaft?

Ok, I found a spacer in the bin of bolts, must be it. The OD is smaller but that shouldn't matter. I did not see a spacer in the manual so I thought I would ask. I did not want to bother anyone by calling as you have helped me so much already. It is my fault for taking so long to put them back together. We will have 2 Revolts with RPM gearboxes ready to ride within the next 2 weeks. When we head down to Oregon Dunes I will let you know. Planning two 5 day trips at least. Saturday thru Wednesday. One other thing, What way do you like the rear outboard calipers facing? I was thinking on top and forward. Does it matter?

The stock clutch spacer should be just a hair under 1"OD. It is the same OD as the shaft of the gearbox. I suppose it doesn't need to be though. If your using Wilwood calipers they will fit best on top to be able to connect the brake lines. The next trip we are planning is for Memorial Day at Florence. I think we will be there from Thur. thru Tue.
