It's something I'd like to do and whilst I have a rough idea on the process (I've read the sites with it on etc),  there are still a couple of bits I'm not sure of.
As always,  I'll be watching the progress with my jaw firmly dragging on the floor as has works his magic.

Just done a little more work on the Sturmey Archer fitting .It may look a little rough at the moment but it will be tided up later after making sure that all fits and it will work
As you will see I have fitted a new bearing and washer + rubber seal on the axle ..

Chas : how easy/hard is it to move the cog on the axle? It's something I never even considered before.

Hi there it has to be grinded off then moved along and rewelded in place ...



 Both chains now fitted



Now I know all works well now its time to strip it down and clean all the parts then reinstall them
