you need to make sure the washer is BETWEEN the roller and the guide. The roller won't roll if it's tightened against the guide.
I just removed the washer between the guide and the roller and now it spins and it keeps the chain from touching the metal piece holding the roller in place.

ok cool - you must have had an incorrectly sized washer or something.

...just a tip - if you have the plastic wheel, you're going to get annoyed at the clacking sound it makes. You can replace it with this MRP unit. This unit is made of rubber. I did mine and the action back there is virtually silent now.

Thanks

Its pretty silent after I lubed the chain and removed the spacer but if it does start to get noisy ill definitely look into it.

Does the MRP roller play nicely with Prolink lube, or would installing it require switching chaine lubes?
