Hi ALL,,

 

            After some more knowledge please, is the run out on the Rigged wheel, the same as the Plunger wheel, please.
If I lay the wheel down and put a straight edge across the brake drum outer edge what distances would be between the straight edge and the rim, please.
It is the plunger I am more interested in but would be nice to know both if you have the information.

best regards Steve

Hi Steve,

This is my re-post from January 18, as this reply was really helpful.

I found on the front wheel there was no major offset ( though somone may correct me ) 2 sizes of spoke for the front wheel.

I have photo's of the offset for the rear wheel. I found that if you sight down the edge of the rim ( brake drum/ sprocket side ) you will notice a small gap of about 1.6mm ( 1/16" ) between the brake drum and edge of the rim. I placed a 24" straight edge across both faces of the rim and in the gap. by sighting up and keeping the straight edge straight, you can get the offset pretty accurate. It worked for me.

I also found there were 4 different sizes of spokes in the rear wheel. correct assembly of the spokes,P73100191.jpgP73100201.jpg will give you roughly the correct offset, with just minimal final adjustment.

Good luck with your re-build... keep us all informed and updated on your progress.... Nick

Hi Steve,

just pass that knowledge on when you can. None of use are complete know all's, I struggle with electrics and have been helped untold times by the site. After a while you will find what you excel at in knowledge and will be able to pass it on also. Sometimes just to be able to share a problem is helpful, eventually the answer will come to you all, that's the beauty of a club, the sharing of information, all the answers are here.
