Hello all,

I am rebuilding the rear wheel on a 1967 B40WD and need to know the offset for the rear wheel considering the centre line if the rim in relation to the crinkle hub.

Does anyone have any information on this at all?

Many thanks
Mark

From Rupert Ratio's volume 2

Rear wheel crinkle hub :- rim 11/16" from end of splines

This is for a WM2 rim, WM3 requires 1/8" to be taken off as it is wider and so nearer.

So not in relation to centre line but the end of the splines allows you to put a long straight edge over the spline end of the hub and measure the distance the rim is away from the straight edge.
