I've noticed the rear wheels are a little wobbly on the ol 214. Took rear wheel off to check bearing and it seemed ok? Slid hub back on and it was wobbly again. Do these hubs wear out? I think I'm missing a shim behind hub to maybe?

I would say that the hubs are worn.

There are several ways to stop the wobble.

In some posts they said to drill three holes on the flats of the hub and thread them for allen screws.

You can also make little shims or small nails to go between the splines on the axle.  Will work for a while.

Or hope you can find a replace hub/s.

If you do nothing they will worn more.

Be careful buying on ebay, you might be buying worn out ones.

Best you check them before you buy.

 

good luck

Hubs are softer than splined shaft. They wear. Ebay usually has some for decent pricing. Don't wait like I did and have one strip completely - wheel stayed on but I had to tow it to the garage. Very easy to change out.
