Welp, I started on the rebuild and noticed that part 6663HB (washer 9/16 x 1-1/8 x 1/16) never came out of the bike. So that may explain some of the spacing. Gonna pick one up tomorrow and try to rebuild and test how it operates

Well I got 6 from Home Depot and none of them fit, I'm starting to realize there are stores for construction and for automotive supplies and they're different. Anyway I'm a dingus and ended up finding the washer.

Here are the bearings, they measure out at .47 (.4695) for height. Pic:



Other than the big spacer, that was all that came out of the hub on the brake side. I believe I'm missing the spacer washer between the two bearings, part 41195-63. Unless it's that raised lip on the bearing on the right but I don't think that's it. Anyone know the size of that spacer and if I could find it locally?

Oh and the axle was not even at all. I used doodah_man's method to measure:

use the rear most edge of the shock eye on the swing arm for a reference to measure to the adjusters to keep the axle even

The brake side measured .77 out from the edge and the other side measure .70. I'm changing out my sprocket from 23T to 21T so will probably have to adjust again but this is even for now.

Wheel spun well, no hiccups from the brakes touch and nothing interfering with spin. Seems like a combination of no-beveling (high spots) on pads and poor alignment. Pulled brake lever down 1 1/4 and it began to engage and eventually stop the wheel so I'm glad where i'm at.

Those washers are used for adjustment. I think if the brake plate is making contact with the drum/sprocket, add a shim. Still rubbing, add another. Still rubbing, something is wrong, start over. If you're friendly with your local shop, they may just give you some. Mine did, but I didn't need any after all.
