I'm having a bit of trouble refitting the back wheel on my 1963 3TA. The manuals I have are not a huge amount of help and I want to make sure I do it properly, so if anyone has experience of doing this I would appreciate some tips.
I have replaced the speedometer gearbox as the old one was faulty. I haven't done anything else to the hub or brakes.
There are two spindle nuts on the right hand side (not brake side). The Manual
says to tighten the inner nut that secures the speedometer gearbox and check that the gearbox works satisfactorily. It doesn't give any indication how tight this should be. Logically, as there is a "distance collar" between the gearbox and the bearing, it would seem that the nut can be done up tightly. However, if I do this the gearbox doesn't turn freely. I can't work out why though. Am I tightening up against the bearing too much?
Should I only tighten the nut lightly? I am guessing the other spindle nut (outside of the chain adjuster) will effectively lock the spindle to the frame.
Not sure if I am explaining this very well, but if anyone can make sense of my ramblings and give me some advice I would be very grateful.
