A couple questions in regards to my 1979 P200E rear hub:
There was some slight play in the rear hub when torqued correctly...if I grab the tire at the 3 oclock & 9 oclock position & push/pull on the hub has about an 1/8th inch worth of play. I took off the hub to find the teeth a bit worn & the seal surface mushroomed slightly.
I had a hub & oil seal from a later PX with the 30mm seal surface...so I replaced the old 27mm one with that. I torqued it to 65ft pounds...but it still has a slight wobble. The splines of both the rear drive & the PX hub looked to be in good shape.
To be honest there has always been a slight wobble back there....nothing major or noticeable while riding...just unsettling when I think about it.
Any ideas on what is causing this? I don't think it is a bearing issue...but they may have worn prematurely ?1?!
Also....it looks like the 30mm PX hub is a direct fit with the correct oil seal...is there any reason that I should not run this on a 1979 P200E?
Any help appreciated.
