Hi Graham,
Looks like you’ve got a good project there 😉 I’m miles away from you down South-KT8, usually have to drive a distance to pick-up this kit from auctions! Got some good London clay down the plot that needs ploughing! In the Atom – 15/30 manual is a diagram of the wheel hub and free wheel housing. It’s simple construction and all comes apart relatively easily with the help of LOTS of WD40!! All the nuts are BSF so you’ll need the correct spanners so as not to burr the nuts. Screws in housing will be tight. Attached pics are of one i haven’t touched yet, the pawls are missing though. Hopefully there shouldn’t be too much wear. A wire brush cleans-up most of it well then some metal grease to finish.
