Rear Wheel Spacer
« on: 06.08. 2011 18:37 »
Hi All, I am renewing the rear wheel bearings on my `51 Plunger, however I did not note which way round the spacer between the bearings goes. It protrudes about 5mm on one end and about 2mm on the other end. Any ideas ??

The end that protrudes goes towards the brake drum. You may have noticed that side has a washer behind the bearing and the other side doesnt, the protusion is so the spacer clears the washer.
