Good morning all,
So I had been having an issue with my rear wheel/brake, I decided to take the wheel off the bike and give it an inspection. Glad I did though not happy with what I found. The five bolts holding the drum to the wheel hub are all gone!??!?! Lesson learned, they will become part of the pre-ride inspection. But now I need to deal with the consequences and I have multiple questions:
1- The dowel pins are loose and rounded over, looking bad in general. I see replacements online, how do the get removed and replaced?
2- The holes in the wheel hub have been slightly enlarged from the dowel pins banging into them once the wheel was loose. Every other hole still appears to be OK. During re-installation, would you put the pins or the bolts in the slightly "egg" shaped holes? Or is there an alternate method?
3- Please refer to picture below, the speedometer gear got chewed up in the center by the sleeve/spacer inside the drum. Does it need to be replaced? If so I see the gear for sale online, how do you change just the gear?
Thanks in advance, let the schooling begin.
