After rebuilding my wheel I'm having a devil of a time fitting it into the swingarm on my 55 Indian Trailblazer. Its just a smidgen too tight. Is there a trick to it? Swingarm removal required a frame separator. Not thinking I need that, maybe a second pair of hands or I'm doing something wrong. See pix. Cant seem to embed photos here.

Your pictures have to be a link to an image (ending in .jpg, bmp, et cetera).
Wrong spacers perhaps?

I got images when I clicked the links.
Not very diagnostic though.

Have you removed a few spacers and made sure it will fit up anyway.
Bearings not fully seated, or the wrong spacer order around the speedo drive maybe ?
Or speedo drive not fully home ?

Nope, I can't make it display either.
Anything to do with google is trouble ?

Big black spacer should be taken out,washer beside the speedo drive should have flats that engage
in swingarm.Frame can be held open by a piece of wood cut to the correct length,just make sure all
the bolts around the GB are loose.
