Front hub bearing

Front hub bearing

Post  Big gaz on Thu Mar 30, 2017 7:47 am

Dear all,
I am trying to take out the front wheel bearings on my falcon.
On the brake side there is a small cover over the bearing.
How do you remove this cover?
Thanks gary

bearing cover

You do not need to remove the cover separately, drift the bearing out from the inside and the cover will come with it, if using rubber shielded bearings when rebuilding, you will not need this cover as it just retains the felt wiper washer which prevents oil getting into the brake drum, with rubber shielded bearings, the rubber shield does the same job
when ordering new bearings just use the code 2RS after the bearing No I,E. 6204 2RS

Front hub

Post  Big gaz on Thu Mar 30, 2017 10:05 am

I tried to drift out the bearing but there seems to be a sleeve inside between the bearings.
So I can't get any surface to remove the bearing on.
Am I doing something wrong?

Presumably you have the type with the Knock out spindle which pulls out of the wheel, in that is the case you will have to lever the centre tube out of the way so you can get purchase on the bearing to knock it out

The centre ribbed part should be unpainted polished aluminium, sides and brake plate were silver

Good job you told me I was going to have them all coated.
What type of bolts do you use, for example engine to frame, shock absorbers to frame.
Should they be Crome, stainless.
Thanks Gary

Bolts

Post  piston 197 on Fri Mar 31, 2017 5:33 pm

Engine to frame should be studs with nuts/washers at both ends, original bolts, nuts etc were mostly dull finish apart from fork top screws etc, but it is a personal choice

Hubs

Post  Big gaz on Mon Apr 10, 2017 2:45 pm

Hi all,
I have just picked up my hubs from the bead blasting.
They have cleaned up really well. Good job I didn't have them coated (thanks piston).
I have fitted new bearings but need to fix the rear sprocket on ,what size and type of fixing do I use?
I have also found that the top and bottom head cups on the forks are missing.
Do you know where I could find some?
Regards Gary

sprocket bolts

Post  piston 197 on Mon Apr 10, 2017 3:11 pm

Earlier sprockets were held with bolts with a reduced head and a nut to lock them on the inside, think the thread is 1/4 cycle , later ones were held with countersunk screws and nut on back to lock them
Have sent you a p.m. concerning the headstock cups
