    Default More '17J Questions

    Can anyone help with the following:

    1. Thread series used in front hub cones? Trying to determine if Comp Distr. axle bushing (11/16-24) will fit the original cones I have.
    2. Thread series used in rear, left side (R.H. thread) cone lock nut?
    3. Is it feasible to TIG weld a few tiny cracks radiating out from several spoke holes in an original rim? Or is it a throw-away to be replaced by repro's?

    Of course, if anyone has any of these items just taking up space in their spare parts bins I'd be interested in making a purchase. I'm trying to build up the wheels to get my project up off the basement floor by the end of summer.

    Thanks,
    Jim Donaldson

    2. Thread series used in rear, left side (R.H. thread) cone lock nut? Check my website it should state it. I make theses.

    Thanks Bob. I'll look on your site for the lock nut.
    Actually the minor diameters of the cones I have measure 0.692" and 0.698". These are a little large for an 11/16-24 thread (should be something like 0.642"). So, at this point it doesn't look like the Comp. Distr. axle bushing will work, but I'm just fishing for some confirmation on that.
    Know any TIG magicians willing to give this rim a try (for something less than the $$$ of a repro)?

    Jim, give me a call in the morning and I'll pull some original bushings off the shelf and measure. Bob
