    What am I doing wrong installing cassette?

    I'm installing a dura-ace cassette on a Jet C2 60 and it isn't working. (Please excuse my incorrect use of terms at times.)

    It looks like I am missing a spacer, with all ten cogs installed, there is about 3-4 mm between the locknut an the bottom cog, so the whole cassette has play up and down the spline(?)

    I feel like there should be another spacer, but there isn't one. My guess is that there should be a spacer beneath the largest cog, but I thought those were built into the freehub already?

    Any suggestions welcome.

    there should be a very thin spacer that goes on the freehub before the cassette is put on.

    OK, that's what I'm missing - can you get these as individual parts at a LBS? Or will I have to get a new cassette?

    Your LBS will probably have extras lying around, if they're a better than average shop, they'll give it to you free of charge.

    You have 3-4 mm of play? Something is really missing. The spacer that allows 10-speed cassettes to fit on 8/9-speed freehubs is only 1 mm thick. Are you sure you have all 10 cogs and/or cog spacers?
