Thread: Wheel and hub differences

  1. Wheel and hub differences

    Hello!
    I’m currently going through my 42WLA type 5 and trying to determine what is original and repro. Is there a good way to determine if my hubs, brakes, drums, wheels, etc are original? How are repros different?

    Can someone post comparisons?

    It would be easier for you to read Palmers books than for us to write it all here.If you show us pics we can tell you.

    Here is a link to an album showing rear and front hubs and wheels. They are the best pics I can get right now.

    Not positive but I think the rear hub looks too crisp at corners to be Original.

    The repop hubs are being passed on as nos.

    The center is too low to be original one not brazed or spot welded looking to me missing a spoke that was never installed.
