Should i have to or is it ok to have to tap the crank spacer in place?
About how much space should be between the seal lip and the back side of spacer?
I saw some info on this matter but i cant find it again.
Thanks for any info.

Some are tighter than others when you say tap it on a small tap is ok but if you have to hammer it hard hone it out alittle and yes it fits tight against the seal lip if you are talking about the slash washer if not slash washer it should be tight agaianst the timing sprocket

check it without the keys for the keyway if it is still tight hone it with a brake hone and get it to fit snug but not where you have to hammer it on but don't hone it where it will fit to loose or you might get a viberation and cause the seal to leak plus putting the viberation throw the bearings.but if it fits with the keys out check and make sure the keys are the right ones or the keyway in the spacer might have some burrs

It's a new one. It was just a little tight going on. Its on and cover should be pretty centered.
Thanks

Sorry. I didn't know it was new. I had a problem awhile back that I thought the snout was broke as it wobbled so much and the spacer was compressed in the 9 position timing gear. So the first time I just machined it down a few thousands. The next time I just got a new one fromLem and really had no problems going on.
