Im assembling a flex plate on my 6BT. On which side does the spacer go? Logic would say between the plate and the crank. But that would be stressing the tabs on the flex plate. If it goes between the plate and the bolts, why call it a spacer? It would just be a washer/retainer.

Photo of the part? Some space the converter hub away from the bottom of the crank pilot hole and some keep the holes from tearing on the crankshaft.

That’s what I ended up doing. I found a photo of it before I took it apart and that’s how it was. The tabs I spoke of obviously locate it on the crank. They would be squashed by the spacer if I put it on first.
