Axle, brake and rear wheel issue

Post  Bryanh9904 on Tue 19 Jun 2018, 3:12 pm

Hi guys and gals,

Wondered if anyone could help.
Iíve fitted the diff, and wheel collar.
Iíve now fitted the final drive to the axle, put the wheel on and it locked up with the brake.
Removed wheel so I could see what was going on and taken some photos.
It seems the axle isnít long enough....?
Photbucket isnít working and donít know how to load photos form an iPhone onto here 😩

how long is your axle?

Are you sure the axle is positioned correctly as it may need to go through further and then you use the thrust and spacer washers on the diff to take up the slack.

images would be useful thou.

yes having problems with photo bucket not working 😡
As far as Iím sure... everything is as tight as it should be on the diff side.
One thing I forgot to mention earlier is that the brake shaft is too long...it isnít flush either end when both brackets are fitted.
Again sorry for no pics, canít upload any 😩

I have spoken to Rob last night and Steve just now, and found the problem!
Iíve put the casting on the outside of the tender instead of inside. So itís all pushed out 😩
Going to cut it off the brake arm to fit!
Going to try to upload some photos tonight
Thanks for everyoneís help, again sorry fur no photos
