Before bolting down the front cover use the spacer to properly establish the seal lip relationship to the spacer. Center it in other words.

I thought that is why they invented it.

This will sound stupid ...does this thing I took a pic of stay on the crank it was there when I pulled things apart. Not sure which way it goes in fatter end or thinner end. With this on the cover will not mate up with the block . I also did a mock up with the damper and it doesn’t line up correctly . I’m confused with this.

You should've removed the spacer before removing the front cover.

There is a 1/4" half moon woodruff key at the front of the crank.
Damper registers there.
It has to be removed before the spacer will come off of the snout.



Youtube video might be the ticket here.

Thanks Scotty I got it taken care of it’s been a while and I’m getting old lol.
It goes behind the balancer, after the TC is installed. Little end goes through the deal.
Thanks Mark.
