Hello all. I am seeking some help on the rear wheel attachment on the brake side of the A50 Royal Star 1968.
With the hub assembled it sit in frame With the squared part in swing arm. The parts book shows part 68-6132 and then the spindle nut.
However the 68-6132 has a 1 inch hole. Is that correct? The shaft is only about 9/16 inch. Is this a part book error?

Looking at the pictures, I believe the spacer sits on the inner side if the swing arm and in this position it should just fit over the end of the stub axle.

See This Thread for further details.

Without this spacer my rear wheel looks to be too much to the right comparing to rear fender, I used a big spring washer under a special nut, but now wonder isn't this washer suppose to be under the nut of a rear brake? Has to check my nuts and bolts.

Hello Gunner
I thought so too but then th squared shoulder hardly sits into swing arm where it would slide during chain adjustment
