Well, I haven't heard from 'BertieB' for a while - I think he's on holiday - or else he's gone to ground !
Progress (YEAH !) the shaft is ready, but as I have no idea what his real name is, or where he lives I can't post it to him. Hopefully he'll be answering my PMs soon.
'Bertie' sent me the spindle from the wheel he's using . . . It is quite different to the Tiger Cub spindles I've got so maybe its from a Sports Cub, A Bantam Cub or something. This has given me a bit of a problem as I have had to make some assumptions about clearances when producing spacers. The shaft should be OK however.
I drew-up a plan and then turned up the spindle to suit:
For comparison, my spindle on top, then the one I was sent and a 1958 T20 Cub spindle at the bottom:
'Bertie' wants to use a 1950/60s rear wheel speedometer drive - which has to be clamped between the inner track of the wheel bearing and the frame. I turned-up some spacers based on the T20 hub dimensions. They may need adjusting. I also made one for the outside of the brake drum - again I don't know the clearance so made it a bit longer than necessary, possibly.
It all fits together like this:
The steel I used was as follows:
Spindle = EN16
Nuts = EN1A
Spacers = 304 stainless.
Its been a bit of a labour of love but good practice. Hopefully it will serve its purpose.
