Has anyone tried to install a 3/4 speed sturmey archer hub in a MTB frame that has 135 rear spacing ?

I've thought of doing it. You need a steel frame, so that it can be cold-set. That much squeeze will make it neccesary to re-align the dropouts as well, otherwise they'll point inwards too much.
Are you building a new wheel for the hub? 26"xfraction is different from 26" x decimal
Remember the horizontal dropouts. You'll want to be able to adjust the chain.
