Clutch question

Hey guys I need help with some play in the driven clutch. There is about an 1/8" horizontal play if I move it side to side. The shaft doesn't move just the sheaves. Is this normal or do I need to move the adjusting collar against the stationary sheave. I measured the offset and its good where it is. I attached an image to show if I remove the small washer (#10) in pic, I can get rid of the play. Can someone check their cat and see if you too have this play? The sled is a 78 panther 5000. Thanks

That is normal, it allows for some variability in the offset. [self aligning feature]
