    Thanks! I too Googled (and yahooed) but DID come up with something -- almost scary. One site sells a sew-on patch that brags that the wearer has successfully overhauled a Bendix coaster. So I put my tools away and thought I'd see if ANYONE has information on this seemingly simple job. Thanks, Harder

    I'd never heard of the Bendix 86. I used to have a Bendix 76, and have seen many Bendix 70 models. but never a Bendix 86.

    Coaster brake hubs are generally pretty simple. If you have any mechanical ability, you should be able to do the job. If you need more help, the Park Tool site has a simple rundown on coaster brake hubs. I think it covers the average Shimano/Suntour/KT/Bendix type coaster brake, which all function pretty much the same.

    I started a new thread with some photos. I didn't want to dump alot of graphics into this thread in case some folks had slow connections.

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jim.
    I have no cone wrenches and for what they cost I found that my local bike shop cleaned and andjusted the brake for the same price. Cheers! pbharder
