It sounds like the bolts are slightly too long and you're bottoming out in the hole. Try grinding them down a few millimeters, or if you want to check you put a Sharpie mark on the very bottom of the bolt, screw in the bolt and when you unscrew it see if the mark has been rubbed off any.
I wondered about this. I'll try that. Thanks!

I don't think I should add a washer because the head of the bolts are sunk into the adapter.

Those are for disk brake not rim brakes. Should have said it in the description but probably didn't.
Okay, me and Bikebury don't know that.
Did you say you have a disk adapter?
I had 6 cog mags from Gazbikes the pads work okay I converted front wheel to disk because I couldn't find an adapter for the rear wheel.

this adapter held the sprocket too far away from the spokes even I put the adapter on the lathe and took some off the inner back side. I didn't know of a 1 piece spacer ring then, so I fabbed a bevel rubber washer in the sprocket indents and 12 washers. but the washers would slip and were not perfectly flat, just cheapies. sprocket was from MZ Miami. not sure exactly where I got the disc adapter. plenty of room tho for a caliper and disc away from the sprocket with this setup. but I don't like QR hubs. I bent this one in like 3 weeks so it's sat for almost 2 years now. maybe I'll redo it it and put it on my next 2 stroke build.
I need this spacer $15:

mbrebel.com has spacers different sizes. everyone says disc sprocket mount with disc brakes about the best setup. worth the hassle, ,
high dollar option is a ghettobike hub puts the disc brake on other side

If off the hub the thing tightens and won't separate then shorter bolts or washers won't help.
