    oh yes -- been a while Dave since I have had one apart

    maybe late for this - but - I have my favorite side to work from when taking apart coaster brake hubs
    seems that it is the side opposite the brake arm
    so -- the cones and such on the brake arm side I do not touch -- they stay tight

    if you have everyTHING apart -- might try
    putting brake arm side together first with cones and axle
    then lay all of your washer THINGS over that
    then -- work it slowly back into hub -- from brake arm side

    you will get it -- MM

    I'm SURE some evil foreign power invented coaster brakes so all us Westerners would be sooooo distracted when they invaded we wouldn't even notice. :eek:

    anyway its all back togeather now albeit being put back on the bike and the bearings adjusted to work properly. I just hope the brake works

    Hope it does work.....the first & only time i've worked on a coaster brake is it took me 5 hrs to get a squeaking noise out of it..............never again. :veryangry:

    in the bicycle shop repair days

    we would add a few of those inside washer things to coaster brakes that were not stopping well

    seemed to bring them back to -- almost as good as new

    ride that MB thing
