What the #$*&#$#*@%@#!!! threads are these?!?!?! I need nuts and cant find correct size anywhere
I searched rat rods . They mention the British designed "whitworth" " threads. Also suggesting you check auto emporium specializing in British made sports cars. Or toss whole thing out for ND.
Aha! We got a vintage British auto repair shop in town! Good idea thanks!!
If you don't find any there, I might have some extras.
If it isnt a 3/8" X 24 TPI then its an “English” or “Raleigh” thread 3/8” X 26 TPI. That’s why you can’t find them in a bike shop or hardware store. I doubt it to be Whitworth but who knows? Maybe somebody here has a Raleigh with extras
Count the threads over a 1" span.
I have a "Renak" hub that needs a new axle and hardware. It's a cool little hub. What's the chances of these threads being the same?
Pchiggin you are spot on! 3/8, 24 comes close, but gotta be the 26
Good,Hope you find the nuts. Perry is an English made hub right? I think its stamped on the brake arm.
Well,Count the threads over a 1" span and measure the diameter. That will narrow it down. If you count 24 Threads Per Inch (TPI) you have an axle that was common to most coaster brake hubs back in the day,although not common @ todays bike shops. They're still available online pretty cheap.
I bought an 18" length of Grade 7 3/8" X 24 TPI rod and made a couple of axles for 2 of my riders.
I had some Steve Perry hubs, and I had to go on an incredible Journey to locate nuts.
Well, the only issue is, somebody jammed incorrect nuts on it and totally screwed up both ends of the axle. I had to cut it apart to save the hub internals. I'll post pics of it later.
3/8-24 screws are still available from the larger hardware stores. Take one of your cones and try a screw in it?
Floyd, I've got taps, dies, and nuts. PM me if you want some help.
Thanks! If my stop after work today fails, ill be in touch
Sports car place didnt have anything. Screw it...... tore it down and tapped and died it all 3/8, 24!
I had a similar komet hub. But the thing wouldn't brake without pedal going half way around. I threw it away. Only way I can ride any distance gotta be close to NOS.parts. most coasters from back in the day are worn out.
Perry rear hubs according to the Sutherlands book is 3/8" X 26
Makes sense, it was made in England. Counting the threads and measuring the diameter is a pretty easy way to see what you have
