    • This step will be easier if you flip your bicycle upside down, and balance it on the seat and handlebars.

    • Loosen the nuts holding the axle in the wheel using the wrenches. Unscrew the axle, and remove the bearings and brake assembly. Set them off to the side on a rag.

    • When pulling the parts out, arrange them in the order in which you took them out. This way, you don't forget the order.

    • Reassemble the parts of the bearing and axle assembly which go on the opposite side of the hub from the sprocket. This includes the brake pads and the cone

    • Using your fingers, make sure the bearings are well coated with grease.

    • Make sure to add some grease at key points shown (red lines).

    • Put the axle and bearings back into the cleaned hub.

    • Make sure that you put the axle in from the side opposite where the sprocket is.

    • If you don't remember, look at your tire. Most tires have an arrow pointing in the direction the wheel turns when you go forward. The axle should go in from the side where the arrow points counter-clockwise

    • Gently screw the sprocket into the hub.

    • Screw the bearing race on. Make sure not to tighten too much. The sprocket and wheel should still spin easily.

    • Remember to place the bearings in the right spot. The large one is placed as shown by the red line, and the small one as shown by the orange line.

    • Replace the wheel onto the bicycle.

    • Don't forget to put the chain around the sprocket!

    • Make sure the wheel is straight relative to the bicycle, and that the chain is relatively taut.

    • Tighten the nuts to hold the wheel in place.

    • Before continuing, spin the wheel and crank the pedals to make sure everything spins smoothly. If not, check to make sure the axle nuts aren't too tight.

Sonuç

Congratulations! You've finished cleaning your coaster brake. Test-ride the bicycle. Listen to make sure that there are no grinding noises. Be sure to test the brake several times. When you're done, make sure all the nuts are still tight.

I have Huffy coaster bike 26”, i’m trying to change the rear tire bearing but I don’t know the size of it. the outside ones are 3/16 X9, but I need to know the size of the small inner one at the gear it was 7 balls.

Can you explicitly say which order the parts go back in?

It should be easy, but I can't quite get it straight.
