    If you are mounting V wheels and have a front and back plate. so the screw passes through each plate. how do you handle the eccentric spacers. do you end up using 2 per wheel?

    Yes, two per axle.

    It also depends on the load. The first Routy for example used just one eccentric spacer on an axle. But, I also would recommend to use two so it's easier to adjust and can handle much more load.
