I  have a new spindle, but if you can see these pictures there seems to be a bit missing, the spindles can't be fitted properly.
Haines have no bit to go in there, any ideas?
I am thinking about getting a new longer spindle made that goes right through with a nut on the end.

Same on mine too, washer under the end bolts and all is good..  The first time I changed the front wheel I spent ages trying to figure out what I had done wrong.

Still doesn't seem right to me, Put a washer and tightened as much as I dare, and it still isn't flush with the end. I would think the spindle should be flush both ends?

I have no spacers in the line,
The only thing i can think is maybe the speedo drive is wrong?
It has never made any sense in mph or kph, it's not the spokes one because I have one of those spare and that doesn't fit at all.
Very confused.

You have to remember that the fork bolts clamp the spindle, all that bolt does is make sure the other end is located. I have had mine 17 years now and was the first to change its tyres and it was as you have described. Have faith!
