SuperSTOL axle spacer

Postby kenryan » Sun Jun 22, 2014 11:40 am

Can anyone tell me the correct length of the spacer that locates the inner wheel bearing? I am trying to put my wheels on, and it appears my spacers are 1/2 inch too long.

I think you haven't pushed your wheels on far enough The brake pins are very stiff need to push hard to get them to go all the way in then the wheels will go on all the way if you have any questions just call me. 727-249-6109

Thanks Kris. I think you are right! I have almost succeeded in getting one side done, but I just ran out of steam today. Hopefully tomorrow. Your guidance was what I needed.

Success. Both mains are on. Kris's advice was right on. Needed to use a bigger hammer on the brake disc.
