Hi Lee,
I have a couple of boxes apart, so had several sleeves to measure
They were all within a thou of 0.375 wide
The sleeve must not protrude past the shoulder on the shaft

 Thank you John,

 This one definitely measures .380, but it looks worn thin. *conf* The groove in the center is off-center, I could not think of a good reason why it would be (just a little) to one side so I assumed it was worn?


 My quadrant is the spline type, and the splines still stick out at least .010. I was worried about that thinking the spline surface would wear on the cover?

Hi Lee,
I do not know the purpose of the groove on the sleeve outer? or see any reason to have it ??
My thoughts were if the sleeve was too wide the kickstart would get stuck when the outer casing is tightened up  *????* *????*
