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..

Hey guys having still having a problem with drag, but I think it's from the bearing.. is the bearing supposed to sit directly on the side plate or am I missing a washer.. https://i.postimg.cc/7ZJfHZt6/IMG-20200221-174911.jpg

got my rear wheel back from the shop after tire and bearing replacement.
Reinstalled it and the assembly would bind up when I torqued down the axle nut.
Pulled the wheel. swapped spacers side for side and put it back on.
Everything is fine now.
