Wheel hubs assembly

Wheel hubs assembly

 

The early Energic motoculteur models up to 1937 used a flat metal plate with a concave center drilled 4 times for the wheel nuts. The greasing of the wheel shaft and perforated locking disc for directional lever operated changes was accomplished using a small reservoir, which was turned on a regular basis with a top screw cap to dispense the grease. This was spring loaded, and needed refilling on a regular basis.

Later models changed to a Energic branded alloy hub cap with a large 2 cm access bolt with a felt washer to allowing greasing of the wheel shaft and directional locking parts.

The mechanism pushes a large pin into a perforated inner disc which is in a fixed position on the wheel hub preventing the movement of that wheel. Turning right and left depending upon which lever operates on each wheel.
