Drum brake and 3-speed-oil issues with Sturmey-Archer?
I have a Sturmey-Archer XRD-3 which I'm thinking of converting to oil lubrication, but I'm a little worried about oil leakage into the brake drum. Is there something in the design of the hub to prevent this? I've definitely seen an old SA advert for a drum brake 3-speed hub with an oil cap in it, so presumeably there is, but I thought I'd check anyway.
Thanks in advance.
