43010-60. Spoke holes in hub flanges are in one row around each flange - 20 holes in the brake side flange and 10 elongated holes (2 spokes to a hole) in the small flange. (See Fig. 2C-13.)

1. Place hub on bench with brake drum end of hub down.

2A. 18" Wheel: Select a brake flange spoke hole (1) that is located midway (2) between two elongated spoke holes (3) of the small flange (upper flange as positioned on workbench), and insert spoke (4) from inside of hub. Follow through, and insert spokes m every other brake flange hole until 10 spokes are in place.

2B. 19" Wheel: Select a brake flange hole (1) that is located through the center of the elongated spoke hole in the small flange (upper flange as positioned on workbench), and insert spoke (4) from inside of hub. Follow through, and insert spokes in every other brake flange hole until 10 spokes are in place.

3. Turn hub over. Insert spokes (5) from the outside of hub, filling the remaining 10 spoke holes of the brake flange.

4. Again, place hub on bench with brake drum end of hub down.

5. Swing the 10 outside spokes (4) clockwise.

6. Swing the 10 inside spokes (5) counterclockwise.

7. Place the rim over the hub with the spoke holes having the most acute angle facing down. Check by inserting nipples in spoke holes as shown in (1, Fig. 2C-14).

spoke up and to the left in the elongated hole. Swing spokes clockwise and insert in nearest upper row of rim holes that angle in same direction as spokes. Just start nipples on spokes as they are inserted in rim.

11. Insert the 10 remaining spokes (7, Fig. 2C-13) in the elongated holes - head of spoke down and to the right in the hole. Swing spokes counterclockwise.

12. See Fig. 2C-14. Select any small flange outer spoke (4), cross it over four inner spokes (5) on 18 in. wheel, and three on 19 in. wheel. Insert spoke in nearest upper row of rim holes that angle in same direction as spokes. Just start nipples on spokes as they are inserted in rim.

13.. Insert 10 handlebar bracket clamp screws Part No. 1214, (8, Fig. 2C-13), in the elongated holes between the spoke heads to prevent the spokes from falling out when truing up the wheel.
