to adjust Sturmey Archer 3 Speed Hub Gears
Place the gear lever in the
middle position ( 2nd gear ) and slacken the locknut (diagram 2)
at the hub end of the cable, so it can be easily screwed to
tighten or slacken the cable .
Next screw the cable
connection (diagram 3) until the end of the indicator rod can be
seen through the window of the right hand axle nut and is
exactly level with the end of the hub axle. (diagram 1)
When the locknut (diag2) has
been slackened the cable connection (diagram 3) can be screwed ,
make sure the lever is in the second gear position and the
indicator rod is level (diagram 1)
If the gears still do not
engage the cable is probably too tight or loose , the fulcrum
clip (attached to rear stay) needs to be adjusted to tighten or
slacken the cable.
there you have it!
