Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

I opened up the hub. A bit more confidence and now know how to set and assemble the LHS cone. I put more park tool grease. Opened the RHS nut and cone. See photos. It does as you say look like corrosion. There is muck inside, I used a small dia metal and picked out bits of copper colour muck. It mig...

Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

It looked like that inside when I took the nut and smaller cone off. The inside edge of the cone has this colour as well. (I hope it is not rust, or muck!), but to me it looked like copper grease, and it was copper colour. I took photos as I dismantles the hub, but I did not take a photo of this are...

Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

I re-looked at this last night. It's fixed/assembled properly (I think) Took covers off, check bearing were ok and grease was still there. The nut that goes over RHS Smaller cone that goes into the hub around axle, the nut was tight, but the axle had a 1-2mm movement. I could not tighten nut further...

Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

Thank you Brucey for taking time to advise and help. Will re-try again. How do I tell if the hub is ruined? Is it ruined on the body were the spokes are attached to? Does it wear away the groove the the bearing rest in? I cycled the bike home yesterday and it seemed ok. Getting home time wise and sp...

Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

Thank you for your help and advice. The bike has Non Turn Washers with the serrated face to lock/clamp onto the chain stay. How does the hub get ruined if the bearings/bearing adjustment is not aligned? The first and second re-fitting, the axle had twisted after a cycle, I don’t think it was spinnin...

Re: SRAM A2 Automatix; introduction to the internals

Hope someone will be able to help, I know the this thread is old and long. I have the SRAM Automatix and I finally took the step to take apart and adjust the spring. I cleaned up a bit and added more grease around the the bearings. Put the hub back together and the cranks arm spins back freely. But ...
