Sounds like he means the spindle. And you'll need more space on the drive side for when you add your crank/sprocket. But if your spindle is too long, you're gonna have to eat up some of that space with washers until you have the correct length spindle.

The 19mm 48 spline is a common one that comes in 5 5/8 and 6 inch sizes. Looks like you've got a six where you could have the 5 5/8"

you'll want the spindle length even on both sides. if its tough to push through for some reason tap it with a hammer.

Use a rubber mallet to tap the spindle on the drive side to make it even with the non drive side. Maybe I'm missing something but it shouldnt be too hard. I hope that spindle will be long enough for your setup.
