Wheel Horse 4937 Spacer was created by Geno
Working on the Wheel Horse 4937 Spacer. I need to ship out a few of these next week so they will be in the store shortly. I have something that works nicely for this and is the same OD and a little smaller ID which is good considering the original was a little too loose around the 3/8" bolt.

It will prob be sold separately for other uses and also as a kit with the bushing, bolt, and lock nut for the seat flip setups. The parts breakdown pics are below. :thumb1

Here is the making of it. Very little cleanup cutting them on the lathe with a parting tool, and it's easy to get the width right at close to .3000" give or take a few thousandths like you can see on the DRO. :smile2

They actually thread on the 3/8" bolt lightly because of the seam in the pipe but can easily be done by hand. I'm not sure if I'll leave them that way or run a boring bar in them while they're on the lathe first to get rid of that.

Made a few of these today and have a system down. The lip is getting cleaned inside with a boring bar, the tooling was ground to cut the new piece a few thousandths quicker than the piece in the chuck, and the cutting is getting done at a higher speed. Now there is no cleanup and they look really nice when done.

They will be in the store next week along with some other things. :thumb1
