Sachs 3-speed hub indicator spindle
Picked up a Fitchel & Sachs Torpedo 3 speed coaster brake hub (probably from the late 60's, but that's really guesswork on the part of the previous owner). There is no indicator spindle or chain attached, so now I'm in the market for a replacement part.
Replacement parts for Sturmey Archer seem to be available, but I don't see any for Sachs. Any idea where to go for these or if perhaps Sturmey Archer's comparable part will work?
And, given that this hub does not seem to have an oil port, what is the lubricating procedure?
Or maybe I should ask this in Classic & Vintage?
