I will take pictures tonight.  But basically stepped conical spacer goes sprocket assembly, top hat on the brake side and I have one flat spacer.  I have a manual but hard to tell what's what on the exploded view .

Bodily harm averted....I finally figured out the the stepped conical spacer goes INSIDE the sprocket assembly with the flat black spacer on the outside.  Once I did that lined up the tire and caliper bracket in 5 minutes:(.  Sometimes I amaze myself how poor I am at figuring out exploded views in the service manual!

It's amazing what taking a night off from the problem can do! The brain works it all out while you're sleeping, and next day, bingo .. !

Once I get over the butt hurt from wasting two days when it took 5 minutes I'll be fine.....

I have started with pictures tons of pictures.   With digital once done delete.

Take the whole project, right and left side. If needed top and bottom.  ALL bolts go in bags with writing what they came off of with PICTURE.

If or when I get interrupted all bags go into box and I'm safe.     Promise the one picture you don't take will be the one you will need and the exploded with be like mud.

Could be I'm old and senile, or FINALLY learned the ounce of prevention is worth a ton of cure.  :015:

Good advice:)  I did everything except take pictures....  The older I get I'm realizing I need take a little more time in the disassembly process as my photographic memory is failing me!
