You can use a 40 tooth gear with a 13 tooth pinion, but not a stock ring gear.
It has to be recessed on the backside to position it to the left a little, to be able to get the proper depth of the pinion. 3.076 is the ratio.

Re: Removing “Dummy bearings” from rear axle tubes with safety hubs

Mark, from what I understand, these are an early version of the modern safety hubs. The only difference is the new ones have a snap ring on the outside between the spokes. This will hold things together if an axle snaps. I’m considering cutting a grove for a ring. The weight is still being taken off...

Removing “Dummy bearings” from rear axle tubes with safety hubs

Before I fight myself or damage something... Does the dummy bearings/sleeves just pop out after removing the lock screw where the grease cup would be ? Or will I need to rig it up in my press ? I need to replace the axle seals that are behind them. I have a slide hammer with a bearing removal attach...

Re: What is the Axle shaft diameter ?

Thanks for the replies ! :D I have the books now, but the one spec sheet is much handier 8-) I measured 1.060 on my only Hyatt location, the right inner of my Ruckstell.

Help ID this spindle marking

A friend got this early front axle and is looking for any markings and found this on one of the spindles.
Looks like a P, K and F and the set of numbers.
I’m guessing a replacement from an aftermarket source.

The stud in between the terminals looks kinda questionable to me.

You can do a voltage drop test there, check voltage at the wire and then on the stud and terminal. Or you can wire a 12V headlight bulb and check the same way, that will put a load on it...

Dennis, those are an early version of the “modern safety hubs”. I was recently told. No snap ring, so potentially you could lose a wheel if an axle snapped.
