Question about swingarm install

Hello all, I bought an rc51 frame, engine and a slew of parts in boxes to build an sp2 and I've got a question on the swingarm.

Looking at it I feel that I'm missing a bearing or spacer but I'm not 100%. The frame and swingarm are from an 02 model. Can you guys tell me if I'm missing something and what it is so I can get the frame/motor/swingarm together?

Should be a photo attached.

Thanks

Looks like a bearing, seal and spacer are missing.

That's what I was looking at that made me think something was missing. I know there's one spacer, one seal and at least one bearing, I just didn't know how "full" it should be.

I might just order it to see. Anyone have a sp2 swingarm they can take a picture of?

Actually, it looks like you are missing #10 short sleeve spacer and all the seals. 4 of them....Items #24 (2x) and #25 and #26.

Judging by your pic though, the sleeve may be sitting on the pivot shaft (on the frame) by the looks of it....

I have the 2 #24 seals. I just feel like there should be a spacer here's the gap between engine and swingarm.

There should be 2 seals on the other side also.
Is there a sleeve inside the engine cases...? Where the pivot goes through..?

The gap you are seeing on the right side (top of pic) is where #10 should be
