Offset Shaftkit questions

Hi, i installed todey the Offset Shaft Kit and i fear thay send me two left sides.
The left side is as the original z-bar shaft on 7 o'clock position and the right side should stay at 5 o'clock position but it is on 7 o'clock too.
What do you think, how are your experiences?

Did you get instructions with it? I'd think they should both be at 6 o'clock or slightly outboard of that, and the holes they seat in are round, why can't you just wrench them down to that position and tighten the bolts?

Re: Offset Shaftkit questions

There is a Tang on the rear (thick) spacer, that should be locate on the lower edge from the welded plate.

I have bought by Rareparts, but they dont respond my question!

Re: Offset Shaftkit questions

Both Tangs are mounted on the lower side but the offsets are both on seven o`clock.

Perhabs i can flip the tang 180° to locate the offest to five o`clock...
