Will the rear wheel from an 83A/I fit an 82A?

Ginsco, did you have any trouble with caliper spacing on the front wheel?

No, just make sure you install the wheel per the manual. I dont have access to the book right now but off the top of my head you tighten the left rear axle nut and check the clearence of the right caliper bracket to rotor with a feelers gauge before you tighten any of the other nuts. I think it was .010 clearence but Im not sure. If you dont have a manual I can check it for you.



P.S. I didnt make it to the post office today before it closed so I will have the package out to you in the morning.

Minimum gap is .007", I just had to do this job, but in fact the gap you end up with is much more than that, more like .025'

The gap I have on the outside of the rotor, between it and bracket is pretty large, 3/16" and the inside of the rotor to bracket is almost nil. It is the same on both rotors.

There is supposed to be a heavy paper shim between the rotor and the wheel hub, if they are missing it would explain the spacing problem.

I've got the spacers and gaskets in place. Pulled it apart twice to make sure. It sure looks like it could use another spacer.
