Default 97-98 Heritage front wheel offset

Anyone have a factory shop manual that covers the 1997-1998 Heritage Softail Springer (FLSTS) model?
I need the factory offset for the front wheel.

The front wheel is offset .320" to the right as you're sitting on the bike from the rear wheel.another words you're straight edge should be on the left side primary side and it's on the rims not the tire.... the rims....

Thanks man, I appreciate the response but I don't want the alignment measurement.
I need the offset that is for the hub to rim as measured from a straight edge on the brake rotor flange (single flange hub) to the side of the rim.
It is set when building the wheel.
If you have that I'd sure appreciate it.

Okay. I remembered seeing it in a shop manual as a table that covered 16 inch and 21 inch rims on the FLST hub.
A friend of mine found what I needed and sent the info to me.
Thanks for your time.

Yeah. We all like a happy ending. But that includes all of the story. BTW, I hope your problem gets taken care of properly. What made you think you needed this adjustment? Was the front searching,/weaving, or pulled to one side?
