I have parts diagrams and adjustment instructions posted at the following: http://web.dia.net/gbradbur/bendix0002.jpg and http://web.dia.net/gbradbur/bendix0001.jpg
I also have a selection of NOS parts for these hubs if you need something.

Hi! I recently came across a bike with an old "Peugeot Approved" badge on it. Does this mean that it was manufactured by another company? How do I go about identifying this bike? This bike may be the start of a hobby for me! :) Thanks all!

Does anyone know of an assembly breakdown picture on the internet of a 2-speed new departure model D hub.?

If the hub shell is a model D, it was originally a coaster brake hub and was converted to a 2 speed. The two speeds that came from the factory had DD on the hub shell. Regardless, I am not aware of any diagrams for these hubs on the net. I could scan one of a New Departure Twin Streak for you, but I have no idea how similar they are internally as they were produced probably 20 years apart.

Thanks on that Gordon. Yes it is a conversion. I have had the bike since new, around 1945, and had the two speed installed a few years later by a bike shop. Do you know of any replacement parts for the planetary gear system. Thanks again.

I have disassembled a Bendix 76 coaster brake hub. I am looking for rebuild info. I found a schematic but what I would like to know is what do I lubricate and what type of lube do I use. I know to grease the bearings, but what about the drive screw, brake shoe keys, expander, etc. Also can someone tell me which side of the hub is the drive side? I did not notice that the hub is not the same on both sides when I took it apart! Thanks.

The book I have suggest the following: 1) pack all ball retainers with ball-bearing grease, 2) also grease brake cones and shoes, retarder spring, clutch face and smooth part of axle, 3) use 30 weight oil on the driving screw threads. You put the brake arm on and assemble all the brake parts and then put that in the big-hole side. Then put the driver in from the other side. If you have trouble, let me know.
