    El Guapo BB/Crank Install Q?

    Installing some Shimano LX Cranks into an 09 El Guapo frame and I'm wondering on what side do I install the BB spacer? It looks as if I only need one spacer (have new Cranks + BB comes with 3 spacers) Currently I did a 1/2way, un-torqued install and I put one on the drive side. I'm thinking that's not right so before I take it off and reassemble, I thought I'd ask here first.. .
    Thanks in advance

    As per shimano's instructions, you put one 2.5mm spacer on the drive side for a 73mm bb shell (which is what the EG has).
