rear wheel play

How much back lash or play is acceptable between the rear wheel and the drive shaft.

Thanks for any help in advance,

Very little. I'd say less than a quarter of an inch. Hopefully Pinionhead will chime in...he's the expert on this. If you have 1/2" or more 'slop', you are looking at some repair or adjustment.

On second thought, when rotating a rear wheel and looking at the driveshaft, about 1-2 inches of wheel movement before the driveshaft turns is pretty much normal.
