Dave, you are right: There is no point in opening up the hub so I will keep cool with this. ( I know from my small experience in mechanic that the perfect is the enemy of the good!)

Concerning my oil leaks, I got some improvements:
I removed the old sprocket, it was really dirty behind it so I cleaned it up;
After that, I installed it again (flipped) because the side of the sprocket whitch was on the hub side before was  slightly marked and in fact, with the other side, after a big ride, the sprocket side of the hub kept clean (almost no oil)

I really need a new sprocket

The chain-glider simply needs the revised rear section.

Thanks very much, Dave -- that's reassuring.

As far as I know, the Chainglider doesn't work with the splined carier. The slimline version only narrows the chainline to 54mm. the carrier for the splined version lacks a surface for the Chainglider to ride upon. best to hunt out some replacement screw on cogs whilst they are still available. I'm not sure which cog you use but there are 16t available at Evans Cycles: https://www.evanscycles.com/rohloff-speedhub-sprocket-EV183484
also Rose Bike: https://www.rosebikes.co.uk/article/rohloff-replacement-sprocket-for-speedhub/aid:269319?channable=e8467.MjY5MzE5&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI0Lj2wKOp1wIVhhbTCh0KEw3uEAQYAiABEgI8UfD_BwE

Thanks for the info.
I'm using 38*17
None at Evans or Rose.
I'll keep looking or consider a new end for the ' glider.
But I have yet to flip the rings. I need to check my milage since fitted.
All good fun.
Many thanks

Hi Matt

I use the Chainglider on my Mercury, same sprocket 38 / 17 and it works fine with the Slimline splined sprocket - just make sure the rear section for the chainglider is the Rohloff version.....

Thanks macspud
Interesting that SJS don't have any in stock but the eBay seller is in Bridgewater.
And he/she has another size of sprocket for sale!
Anyone smell fish?

Is it the ebay username that is getting your nose twitching?  ;)
I think it's Robin Thorn's personal ebay account.
