1938 Silver Streak 350cc.

Postby ianw1 » Thu Jan 14, 2021 4:29 pm

Well I've finally got my rebuilt wheels back.
When I got the bike the front wheel was tight (binding) I put it down to standing for a good while.
When I stripped the hubs down I made drawings of all the parts & the order they were in.
I've built the wheels back up for the front to still be binding.
I removed the front brake plate & "shimmed" the spindle to the thickness of the brake plate, the wheel spins lovely without the brake plate.
I've a feeling it's down to the wheel spacers, as I said I've put them back in the order I removed them so I'm thinking that they were maybe in the wrong order when I got the bike.
I've been looking for a diagram of the wheel spacers front & rear but can't find one, can anyone help please?

There's a cross section of the hub here, page 130:

Thanks Dave. I need to ckeck I'm not missing a spacer.
I think I'll build them with out the brake shoes in place to make sure it's not the shoes binding.

It was the brake shoes catching the rear of the hub, turns out the brake plate was slighty twisted, now straight.
