I've installed this roller kit as the instructions with proper spacer and washer in the right roller support shaft and just a washer on the left roller support shaft. The left one has about 7mm of front to back play where the right one has only 3mm of front to back play. Is the left one correct with that much slop?

ANSWER Hello Mike, This might sound strange but the drum rollers are made this way. There is no problem with it. You see, the drum has ridges in it that the drum rollers try to follow. This keeps the drum rollers in the position they need to be in to operate properly.
