My Pulstar rear hub had some play in the axle so i foolishly stripped it down.
On the freehub side, the outer locknut sits flush against the adjustable cone. Unfortunately the cone has no way of being held while the locknut is tightened
So if i wind the locknut tight, it tightens the cone too tight to the bearings (tighter than a tight thing in tights). If i just nip the locknut up finger tight is there any way it can unwind when secured to the dropouts with the skewer?
The non-drive side of the axle has two nuts so they aren't budging, i can't decide if that's enough? Every other hub i've stripped has had adjustable cones that can be held by a spanner while i tighten the locknut on both sides of the hub, so i've not worried about it.
