    Are the two spacers the same size on Hollis hubs ?

    Tube is back in mate lol. The 2 Hollis spacers are the same size but they are smaller than the ones that were in there. The bearings are the same size as the old ones.

    Will see what these new spacers I've ordered do when I fit them on Friday.

    i had a similar problem on my CRM - my bolts on my disc were bolted in wrong ..

    the bolts should have slipped inside a countersunk hole in the disc - but someone had put the washers on the wrong side - so the bolts where sitting proud of the disc

    if that makes sense / or is any help ?

    The moral of the story is

    Don't do maintenance jobs late on a sunday night because your away all week working. Job done now and all good.

    Thanks for the reply guys.

    There wasn't a problem. It was all in the mind.

    The one side touched the fork leg with the spacer and the other side touches the spindle collar and it looked like there was a space between the spacer and the fork. Giving the impression that the spacer was too short. The bolts rubbing was because I didn't pull it together right as I was fixated on the spacer. Just too late at night to be doing things in a rush. What a dick lol
