I checked my '31 and '46 Car Builders' Cycs, but there's nothing

something . . .

So, what's "correct?" I've been using .025, or 2", which
looks pretty
good to me.
See the SAFETY APPLIANCES: AAR Standards sections in your Cycs.
"Minimum clearance two (2), preferably two and one half
(2-1/2) inches."

Thanks, Richard. So, my spacers should be .030", but my .025" have been OK . . .

I'll examine that reference.
