I am sorry for not knowing if this exist, but I looked and don't see it. I am rebuilding a deuce tranny, and when I put the main shaft back in, 2nd gear comes in contact with the reverse idler PTO gear. I don't know if this will work it self out when the rest of the parts for the rear of the main shaft are assembled or not. I attached a photo to show the issue. Thanks in advance for any help

Your rear output bearing may not be fully seated on the MS, at this time?

Once the spacer and flange are installed and the nut torqued to specs, everything should be in correct position, with a safe gap between those two gears.

So does the bearing have to be seated on the shaft all the way to the spline section for 1st gear? I see about an 1/8" between the bearing race and the bottom at the spline section.
