Should there be any up/down play in the main shaft on logo's.
I just built a 550sx.
Do you depend on the pinion and main gear to hold the little bit of play?

I guess it would depend how much play you have.
If you use the shims that came with the kit, you can get the play out.

I used what the instructions called for in the locations the instructions stated. not much play. the instructions stated that there would be a small amount. I was just wondering if everyone shimmed the play out or fly it with that little bit of play. I would think that would be hard on the main gear.

Loosen the collar, pull up on the main shaft, while holding vertical pressure, retighten the collar.

When I did that with the collar it seemed to mis-allign the tail belt. I was thinking just add another shim..

Yes, add shims until the belt is aligned with the tail drive gear and pulleys in the frames while pulling pressure on the head upwards. Then retighten the collar. Then add shims as needed under the tail drive pulley for the main gear....
