    Shimano Nexus 3 IGH rubs on breaks when torqued too tight

    Hi,

    I'm totally new to IGH's. Got this Shimano Nexus Inter-3 paired with my BBS02, I removed 1 nut from the sprocket side of the IGH because my tires were rubbing on the frame. In doing so I most likely messed up the previous torque setup on the break side(IGH drum breaks) and now when tighten all the sides so that it would be just right - the wheel is stopping while freewheeling. Tighten it just so the break side of the IGH is a bit loose - freewheeling doesn't break anymore, but I the sprocket side is wobbly and has a play in it. Anyone had this issue before? Just a note I did ran the IGH full power when it wasn't working right and I don't know if I broke anything.

    Sounds like the wheel needs to be dished or brake adjusted. Those outside nuts need to be quite tight because all the torque from the hub meet there.
