What kind of hub have you got? The springer brake drum goes with the star hub and since now there are reproduction starhubs with Timken bearings around there are also different axles.

I know that Custom Chrome - who has the patent on the Timken Star Hubs - sells a separate axle to go with them as the stock axles are a different diameter.
In the picture from left to right are all the parts for a stock setup. Note how the stock axle is stepped about midway. Yours should be smooth there but the step on the right is important for the backing plate adapter.
Left to right
Spacer goes between hub and rocker on the kicker side
Adapter goes between hub and drum on the clutch side
Backing plate goes on and the adapter sticks through the rocker
Nut goes on the adapter
Axle is secured with castle nut and cotter pin

Hope this helps

thanks for the help vonwegner I did find a diagram for the thing and I had it right what I still don't understand is the big spring that slips over backing plate between washer that holds cork grease seal tight to backing plate when you tighten sleave nut up it pulls everything tight to rocker, doesn't seam to do anything but make it a pain in the ass to put together. yes I do have the two step axle instead of the 3 step oem, don't get that one either maybe somebody can edumacate me

My bikes do not have a cork grease seal so I do not know. Important is that the backing plate can float or turn as it needs to move when the rocker moves up or down.
Regearding the steps in the Axle.
A stock factory Harley star hub has an ancient roller bearing design. As such the axle has to conform with the different diameters of the roller bearing sleeve.
Your modern version uses readily available Timken bearings which do not come in the same size as the Harley design. Hence the need for a different diameter axle to accomodate the modern bearings. It's all good.
