Some parts missing

Post by San Arthur »

I disassemble the hubs and both have parts missing. I don't remember the ride being so bad, but then the vibration was terrible.

You Will

You will likely need different wedding band spacers when you rebuild. I ended up getting just about every normal-range size to shim the two sets I did. Kind of a tedious operation until you figure it out.

Question for all R26·& R27 Experts

Question for all R26·& R27 Experts

I’m rebuilding the hub for both wheels.
I want to replace the wheel trust sleeves.

I you look in Hugett parts list they show two sleeves, one on each end. Here as number 14 and part number: 36 31 4 038 142
Image

But in other webpages in the USA they have only one sleeve, here as number 76, same part number.
Image

So what should I get, 2 as Hugget or only 1?

One side only

Post by jwonder »

I have included pictures from the R27 page in the parts book as well as pictures of a spare R27 wheel I have that I did not rebuild yet.

From both the parts book and the pictures you can see the top-hat spacer on the drive/brake side and the reverse top-hat clearly missing from the hub side. If you look in the picture of the hub side you will see the sleeve, wedding ring insert and the bearing, but no top-hat spacer. Also its clear that the felt seal surface is not sealed on the hub side. It has been a while since I did the R27, but I do seem to remember the "reverse top-hat" on one side.

Oh, and I do believe that the "hub cap" gets bolted on first, then the reverse top-hat, and then small hublet (my term). This allows the small hublet to stay stationary with the axle while the larger hub turns. If I remember it all correctly....
Hope this helps.

Thanks Jambo, Unfortunately I didn't take pictures and everything is disassemble now.
I'm waiting for parts and as soon as I get everything I'll check against your information.

Any suggestions other then replacing the parts?

Post by San Arthur »

I'm still trying to save the shock support. And have not been able to unscrew the shock out of it.
Image

The tube turns, while its base stays in place.
Image

I drilled a hole and used a tommy bar tray turning and pulling and nothing. The pipe truns, the base, no.
Image

Image

Since the shock base needs to turn to unscrew, I’m thinking on cutting the shock tube and gluing a pipe extractor to the base and try to make the base turn.
Image
Image

I know I can get a new one, but I’m just trying to save the original part and I’m BORED!!!!

Any suggestions?
