Title: 55 Goldie, front wheel spindle, added size. Or, yer bog standard BSA B31 spindle
Post by: Kennij on November 13, 2017, 10:01:33 PM
Hi all,
I wonder if anyone can help with the dimensions of the 8" single-sided hub spindle, and the between bearings in-hub spacer.
The spindle which came with the bike, which had a A65 hub fitted, I have discovered, is for a 7" hub.
I got out the 8" hub I bought a couple of years ago to check, had a look into the spindle annular space and, no spacer. It has had new bearing retainers fitted, so quite an oversight.
The later spindle, the popular one,  would be 9" long, with a minor dia. of 11/16", lh threaded section 9/16". The main section, the larger dia., is 7/8" but for what length.  The spacer, I have no idea of any of it just now.
Any help gratefully received.
Thanks,  Ken.
