I made sure the correct size plates went in each one, so I know that's good. I have the front bearing cap installed. Guess I will see what happens bolted to the adapter. Like I said, it will shift fine by hand as you can see in the pictures with the top removed. The forks seem to push it further forward.
Really hoping to not have to pull the bearings again...
