Yes opposite sides for the wear tabs and yellow spring. Yes it sucks to take apart as the spring is heavier duty and may shoot the cam off. Snap ring removal tool is nice to have for this. Also, I have never seen a backplate for the 40 series like that. If that's the way it came new, then great! If not, then who knows and I apologize in advance for it failing as they are only rated up to 8 HP... And will flex and who knows what else under all that extra torque. I have only seen those on the 30 series, I have been wrong about lots of stuff before though.... Then again it looks like it's been modified/drilled to fit will suck if it breaks.

Your problems with red spring orientation I have experienced. I just ended up making a 3/16" plate /tube Jackshaft setup that was heavy duty.

If you want to do it right with no welding you can buy some pillow block bearings and make your own Jackshaft setup with red spring.. no welding required I think.
