I have seen similar hub problems on 1950s steel "British Hubs" fitted to the back wheels of Dot and Greeves competition machines,where the sprocket bolts were forever coming loose.The previous owner no doubt had found that instead of the wheel nuts coming loose ,the action of the wheels over rough ground rattled the short end of the studs out of the hubs,the wheel nuts did not come loose .to cure the problem he reversed the studs and put a lock nut on the back of the hub,

You could well be right and I can't think of a better explanation.

I'm still waiting for parts to be delivered, so this has given me a chance to strip everything down, do some weld repairs and give it a lick of paint. Here's a video if you are interested.

Hi Ajax

I had problems too with accessing my albums Etc. The advice I recieved was to use the Icon No 6 on the second row of the posting window or as it advises Ctrl + K keys together.

Great interesting project looking forward to seeing it running.

Some progress has now been made. The chassis has been fully stripped down and some weld repairs made. It has been repainted with Hammerite red oxide primer and Lidl grey paint. I have used this Lidl paint on several projects and rate it highly - it can't be beaten on price, it's tough and looks good too. The wheels are back on and the motor is being positioned for permanent mounting.

Eric,

Thanks for your helpful suggestion. I tried the link option (Ctrl+K) which produced a text link, but found the Image button a better option when I found that I could use the URL for the image.
