Cones for a rear wheel on pre-war FB

Post  Neil Lewis on Fri Jul 31, 2015 8:41 am

Hi all,

During a recent strip of the back hub, I found the one of the cones (the brake side with a shoulder but no flats) was worn on the leading edge. Any thoughts on who might be able to supply one?

Thanks

Neil , I have a small selection that I will be taking to the AGM on Sat 8th, there are a myriad of different styles,sizes and threads, always need a sample and a spindle to check them, they seem to be various sizes from 7/16" to 3/4" thread in 20, 24 and 26TPI as well as different external sizes / lengths

Thanks JH for the e-mail, I am thinking 7/16 thread at 26tpi. But I will re-strip the back wheel and do a quick drawing, I won't make the AGM. But hopefully a draw will be clear.

Thanks

Neil,
yes a drawing will help with the o.d. dimensions, but without a spindle it is very difficult to tell a 26TPI thread from a 20 or 24, yes I have a thread gauge and can easily check a spindle, but up the middle of a 7/16" cone is next to impossible to tell one from another, I would require the spindle to thread the cone on to be sure, if the outer diameters are correct. I have a box weighing approx. 20lbs with them in and there must be 30 different type /sizes/lengths/diameters and thread forms in there !
