Can anyone give me the dimensions specifically the diameter of a TT hub? or are they the same as A car?
If you're referring to the front hubs; yes, they're the same as as a Model T's. However, if you are referring to the rear hubs, . . . nope, they're 1" greater in diameter and are all-around of heavier construction. Specifically 7" in diameter
what about the part that fits through the wheel? what is the diameter for that? Rear wheel! Also, were they ever made with a wooden felloe? I have a pair of wheels I am trying to identify, so I can sell them and buy proper wheels for mine
The TT rear hub OD is 2.5" where it fits into the 12 spokes. Throughout production of the TT a rear wheel was offered with solid rubber - not pneumatic. Earlier on (1917 - about 1921)they would've been non-demountable with the wood felloe then changed to the 6 lug demountable solid rubber. All demountables would've been without the wood felloe. As production of the TT increased, so did the popularity of the pneumatic tires so the solid rubbers trailed off for over-the-road applications. Its possible you might have one or more of the earlier rears. I sold a set to Willie from Houston (who frequents this Forum)a year ago so he might chime in for a better wheel comparison. They sure are heavy!
A few pictures
Hmmmmm. . . wood felloe with obviously a pneumatic tire rim. . . . wood appears restorable except for the damage where the hub would fit. Now I'm not sure if its TT or not. John Danuser ought to chime in any time now. He always has TT rear wheels for sale. For sure you want the pneumatics for touring - preferably demountables. Good luck
If the wheels are solid and usable, and the hole is 2.5", I'd be interested in buying them. Send me an email.
George, what you see as damage is actually three divots which correspond to outcroppings on the hub to prevent it from turning. Greg, I am at work at this moment, but when I get home, I will measure the hole. I am pretty sure it is about 2.5 inches, but done hold me to that until I confirm it
