The rear axel blocks are not the same size. Which one goes on which side?

One has an L shaped lip on one edge, that one goes on the sprocket side, and the L shaped lip goes forward. When using the marks to align the chain, count from the back edge of the block forward, or you'll be one full mark off.

Bet the bike was pulling to the right.If you count from front to back with the notches,the rear tire will favor pointing right.
