The 40Ca(13C, 14N)39K reaction at 60 and 68 MeV has been investigated in the no-recoil approximation to the DWBA. Reorientation effects arising from the quadrupole moments of 14N and 39K were found to be small. The use of spin-orbit components in the optical potentials was found to shift the phase of the angular distribution into agreement with experiment, while maintaining a fit to the elastic data. This was understood from a generalization of the Strutinsky model. For the 40Ca(13C, 12C)41Ca reaction at 60 and 68 MeV a smaller shift in phase was obtained which was desirable, but the damping of the magnitude of the oscillations was disturbing.
