Victor, measure from anywhere convenient for you, only place I can suggest is the brake plate can set my hub assembly up with theb brake plate on, and work from there have to check the sprockets align any way before Igo any further

Thanks

Rather than rely on these measurements, which may or may not be the same as for your bike,
you may be better off assembling the hub and axle and sprocket and spacers in your swingarm,
ensure the chainline is right, determine the centreline of everything, and figure out the rim offset from there. ?

It only takes a different spacer measurement or something different in something, and you may be all at sea.
Don't ask me how I know this.....

So, use those measurements with caution.

Plus, Has anyone noticed that logging in suddenly doesn't always seem to work ?
It seems to forget ?

Yep with the logging in. Had to write stuff twice.

the next stage was going to be asking about the front end, as its partially dismantled, any way checked the engine and rear sprocket alignment, and that is ok so spacers seem to be right, and brake shoes rub on correct portion of drum, well same as they were before it was dismantled. so I'm happy with the hub,brake plate and spindle and spacer assembly, once I get the rolling chassis ssembled I'll check front and rear wheel alignment, dont really want another bike that leaves two tracks in the snow.
