Sometimes you just have to improvise!

So last week I busted the right rear hub on my Outcast.
Ordered what I thought was the correct part....it wasn't....but pretty close.
I needed part #AR330404 and instead I messed up and ordered #AR330193
Not wanting to wait ANOTHER week this is how I remedied the problem....for now.

Here's the difference between the two hubs....the new (wrong) hub has a gap of about 7mm
between the hub outer bearing and the wheel hex.
NOT GOOD!

Sooo,I decided to make a spacer from some 3/4" Delrin rod I had and try that to take up the gap.

Well it fits and no more sloppy gap!

Looks like we're ready to go bashin'.....and break something else!;)

The only problem I see is now the bearing load is a little more inboard on the axle,
hopefully that won't be a problem.
Note to self and others,ALWAYS ch. and double ch. part numbers....looks are deceiving!:confused:
