1980 Garelli SSXL - Grimeca Rear Wheel Reassembly

Brendan McClorey /

I’m rebuilding my first moped! It’s an old 1980 Garelli SSXL. I’ve taken apart my Grimeca 7Razze rear wheel to clean and re-grease the bearings and change the brakes but I’m second guessing myself on how to reassemble it. I can’t find any sort of schematic online. The second picture(from left to right) is what I believe to be the correct order for the fasteners but I want to be sure.

Definitely learned to take plenty of pictures before I take anything apart in the future..

Thanks for your help!

Yup. That's right.

Make sure when you tighten the nut after the spacer that the brake plate doesn't bind up against the hub. It should spin free and easy.

The brake plate can get bent a little around the lip, out of round a bit over time, or whatever. If it rubs, you can use a thicker washer inside to space it out a little bit more.

It’s hard to tell for sure in the pic, but is that rust on the brake surface?

Yes, it is.. Is that something I need to be concerned about? I just switched out the brake shoes.
