Splined Hubs

Post by housemartin » Mon Jan 25, 2016 11:32 pm

Good evening, has anyone got any pictures or can give me a link to a picture/thread showing the splined hubs used on an se4 to fit wire wheels.
I am curious to know how to get to the nut to adjust the front bearing play?
Thanks
Dan

Don't you have to unbolt the spline hub adaptor to access the cap that covers the bearing nut and pin
Just a guess as I've never had cause to look never having had wires

You'll get the end grease cap off using a screw but you'll not get the split pin out without removing the adaptors


SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!

So do you then use an ordinary wheel on the studs to allow you to spin the hub and feel for play?

So where the se4 car build with bolt on wire wheel adapters and not a different half shaft/hub design?
Maybe this thread should be on the se4/coupe forum.
I am sure a picture will make the adjustments of front wheel play and rear brake shoe replacement seem simple.
Cheers Dan

That's a wire wheeled Coupé front hub. The hub adapters bolt onto the hubs and drums
