I don't the model name of your Huffy, but it was made in '59 according to the serial # which you can doublecheck by clicking on to the serial # charts on this site.

Assuming you have a Bendix 'kickback' hub, you can go to www.bunchobikes.com, click to 'Bendix Automatics,' and the 1960 service pamphlet w/ an exploded diagram will appear along w/ maintenance tips.

does anyone know where I can find a date chart for Morrow hubs? or does anyone know how to date them My hub has this on it just like this:

Eclipse Machine Division
Made In Elmyra NY USA
N3 36 13

The front hub is a New Departure. both are factory painted black and came off a Dayton/Huffman bike.

I believe there is a letter stamped in the casingwhich identifies the year. I have a morrow on my girls elgin with a letter of F, it should be around 35 or 36

FYI I thought I'd share what I got from two e-mails. the first one told me:
"N3 indicates hub was manufactured between July and September of 1943 which was most likely assembled on a 1944 bike."

the second said:
The N3 on your hub is the date code. The letter is the year (A=1930,...)

both people came up with 1943 for my date of manufacture. I hope you don't mind I posted your info, but I thought it might help the rest of us who didn't know this stuff.
thanx. Scott

I have a vintage tricycle 3 speed mith a differential, this makes it 2 wheel drive. I was told it is a columbia but the #s dont match. the serial # is 9 004 1020 spaced just like that. It is not a tricycle kit, and is a full size trike. It is obvious that it is old but no one can tell me who made it, or even who made tricycles with differentials. It does have a basket if that helps, and was sparkly blue.
