1. Grab yourself an axle for 120mm to 122mm spacing.
2. Arrange cones, spacers and lock nuts accordingly:
Dimension "A" = freewheel stop on hub shell to outside of drive side lock nut.
Set A to 29mm minimum for regular 5 speed spacing.
Set A to 35mm minimum for regular 5 speed AND regular 6 speed spacing.
Dimension "C" = outside of lock nut to outside of lock nut
Use the non-drive side as your "buffer", "fudge" side or "play loose side. Try obtain at least 120mm and as high as 122mm.
Once you have achieved the above, test in the dropouts with a strip of chain set on the lowest cog of the freewheel to verify clearance. Then build wheel if not built already - make sure wheel is properly dished such that the rim falls on center between the lock nuts of the new hub.

1. I do not claim to be an expert in bicycle mechanics despite my experience.
2. I like anyone will comment in other areas.
3. I do not own the preexisting concepts of DISH and ERD.
4. I will provide information as I always have to others that I believe will help them protect themselves from unscrupulous mechanics.
5. My all time favorite book is:
Kahane, Howard. Logic and Contemporary Rhetoric: The Use of Reason in Everyday Life
