Hi Rusty6, thanks for posting the picture. I have a 1954 50 s/n 2050, and did tighten the nut so the wheel/hub did not wobble on the axle shaft, but there was still "play" between the hub and axle shaft when you "rock" the wheel with the brakes locked tight. I could see the big nut turn slightly before the hub would move, or vice versa. Does the shaft splines wear down before the hub spline? I assume there is no availability on new axle shaft or hubs for the 40 and 50

I have an older 50 than yours. (#1420 I think) Sounds like your splines are worn past the point of tightening. I'm assuming you had the wheel raised off the floor when tightening? I'm not sure which wears the most or fastest. I might open up the one old axle I have left with a hub still on it just to see. I have no idea where the other 3 hubs are. The axle spline in my picture definitely showed signs of wear.
