EW 350 - Wheel axle
« on: 13 Nov 2012 at 07:09 »
Hi all,

Unfortunately I miss the rear wheel axle and I have to rebuilt it. Is there a difference in the length do they have the same? Can anyone provide me with a foto? Any help appreciated.

Hi Andreas,
I have recently rebuilt an EW and had the same issues. Follow this link and it will, hopefully, explain all;

Although this is primarily a bearing link I found that the taper bearings were obsolete. I thought that the spindles were a bit thin too so I made new spindles to 10mm and fitted metric sealed roller bearings as described in the link.

Cheers
Andy
