Finally got some cones to fit the p1001 hubs and they are running very well for such old items. Still struggling with fitting a five speed freewheel though! The ones I have tried will screw on to within a few mill of the end of the threading but no further. Have tried an english threaded fixed sprocket and this will only go to same point. Any suggestions please?

Proborably not the correct thing to do but I did it like this.Fit freewheel tool tight in a vice put plenty of copereize/anti seize on freewheel and hub thread.Wind the wheel down onto frewheel when it tightens up slowly and gently wind back and forth it should go down all the way.Mine did it is an english threaded freewheel and french hub.
