When clamped in position,it does not foul obviously, the width across the tray lugs is 8-1/8″ which seems to be a “correct” measurement if we accept “whole” numbers.
Without the inner clamps it rubs on the frame rails.
The rear spindle lugs are now 5/16″ (8 mm for the young’uns) apart, was 3/16 max before fitting the tray.
Also the rear spindle nut now needs much more force to tighten which is understandable given the extra spread and shorter run.
So, being used to younger machines from the 50’s, is this normal?
I have always been taught that if you have to use force to fit anything, then investigate and question.
Hence this post! 😳
