Bendix Two-speed Automatic Kickback hub repaired!
Thanks to the patience of Joan G. and Mr. Goodbike's bean counters, I successfully repaired one of these brilliant hubs. With my trusty Glenn's manual and internet resources, I had a pretty good idea of what I was getting into, though once I got everything apart, lubed and put back together and it didn't shift, I figured it was vitally important to repair or replace the index spring, which are apparently in short supply. If you need one, check Ebay, or Memory Lane Classics. Once this part was in hand, reassembly was quick and successful.
