Re: Moulton TSR rear pivot

I have only one metalwork job left. Found it the other day. I have an O Level in /engineering Theory and Practice. These are a pair of trammels. Made in late '68 or early '69. All hand made. Long sliding taper, two identical pieces made from three plates countersunk rivets, and the pointers are silv...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

Yep. I'm correct. No7 is rattling and catching on the inner of the shell. Cleaned the shell out and saw the scoring. Left the pin in the chain for 2nd gear, fitted the innards and the LH bearings and cone. All nice and hand tight, and dropped and bounced the wheel on the concrete outside. The recogn...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

Sussed it. Put the hub together and left it in 3rd gear. No rattles. Then, I pulled out the toggle to yellow mark 2nd gear and inserted a pin to hold it. Yes, I asked permission to use a pin from SWMBO. :wink: Then, I tried to see what was loose. The insides were quiet, but it was No4 sun and planet...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

I can build up the whole hub - not putting it in the wheel - and pull the toggle to the yellow mark and see if it rattles. I've a feeling I've done that in the past, and found nothing, and that is why I thought it was a pawl issue rattling in the shell. I'll still do it though. It's all clean and dr...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

Good morning. Having a cuppa after waking up with another idea. Having thought about this a lot, it seems pointless assembling the hub with the "missing bits" as it's 100% guaranteed to be quiet. It blindingly obvious that it's clutch 25 that is rattling. No7 has splines that engage with c...

Re: What do you get if a Raleigh twenty collides with a Moulton Mk3 ?

Raleigh brought out the RSW16 of course.

This is Mrs Mick F riding ours to the National Cycling museum.
1968 version as original ................ not Mrs Mick F, she pre-dates the RSW16 somewhat. :wink:

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

Right ............. Had a think and a fiddle, and another beer ............ The hub will be assembled tomorrow morning and inserted into the wheel. I will lubricate it with basic bog-standard general-purpose grease ....... enough to allow a ride of maybe ten miles. I'll test it out on Monday morning...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

PS:
Brucey and me crossed in the post. :D

The ring bearing, I suppose you mean No12 ....... the bearing that the cassette carrier has against the ball ring No11.
It would need a seal somewhere behind the dust cap No14.

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

Well ................ I nipped out to the workshop and brought back all the bits into the livingroom. Having a beer! Yes, without No25 and all the bits for gear changing, the hub sits in 2nd gear. That is, the cassette carrier No13 does the same rotation than No4 ....... the pawls of which engage wi...

Re: Noisy Sturmey Archer 3sp

PS to both my points above. No13 has pawls, so it must drive the internal ratchet of No7 irrespective of No25. I'll check on this later perhaps. No13 has No1 and No2 in there and they are supposedly the same No1 and No2 as the LH end. The bearings are the same, but the retaining rings are different....
