The hubs that turned up fitted fine, but...
1)They only sent one buddy (they are only sold in pairs off of the website)
2)The one they sent didn't fit in the hubs they sent.
I now have to photograph the hubs for them so they can try and find a match and hope that fits!
Trouble is Snipe have gone pop a few times over the years (not under current ownership though), so their database probably isn't the greatest.
Additionally, they historically used different manufacturers of running gear, so identifying parts sometimes proves difficult.
Do you have an axle manufacturer's plate on the axle, or a name / symbol on the dust cap? Also, if you have a drum casting number I might be able to help you out, so you can at least be fairly confident they'll send you the right things!
Post your pic up on here too!
