Default Spoke hub bearing assembly

Hey guys. Was wondering if you guys knew a website or place I can buy a complete bearing and spacer assembly for my spoked rear wheel hub. I live in Los Angeles, CA. I'm riding a 77 Sportster, bought it from someone not running, but running into issues with it dragging a lot when I tighten it all down. I may be missing something. Thanks in advance.

So if the wheel is stiff when tightened properly them you need some shims
or a longer spacer.

As you saw in the parts diagram from Ronnies that they sell 3 different lengths.
Most shops just have a supply of shims available to set the endplay.

Stock scenario on a '77 rear would be ball bearing. No end play on ball bearings.
if sill stock rear, check this.

Thanks guys. So it seems I may missing some spacer or something. Everything seems to lock up pretty tight and after a ride my axel nut seems to come loose some how.. I'm looking in to buying a whole new bearing and spacer kit..
