    Help with rear wheel

    Hi, everybody. I need a bit of help with the rear wheel on my 1975 R90/6. I took it of today to have new tires put on. It has been a long time since I have had it off. When I remounted it I have a terrbile grinding and if I do the axle nut up tight the wheel will not turn. I removed the wheel again and had a look. My question is on the inside of the hub, the section that mates with the splines there is a seal. Is there supposed to be a spacer over the seal or cover over the seal? I know there is one on the other side covering the seal. I can't remember but it would seem to make sense. I have looked at schematics but I can't tell from them either. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    John

    I found the spacer. The whole affair works alot better once you put all the pieces in! I think I am getting old and forgetful!

    Glad we could help! See, the Forum is like the doctor's office. Come in, tell everyone what's wrong, have a light bulb moment, and then everything is all better.

    Question Which end of the bike does the rear wheel go on?

    C'mon now!
    I thought that I was unique and the only one that did this sort of thing.
    Then I thought it was because I was an Airhead, but remembered that I (rode) an Airhead.
    I'll be darned if I can remember where I was going with this. But it matters not, I've got to ride.
    Every one Ride Safe!
