You can see the difference without removing the wheel.
Floyd, thanks for the photos.
If the inter brake components have been removed, (as on my Scamp axle) and the brake hub has been retained, it might look something like this.
When I asked my "Axle Guy" about it, he said that if the brake components failed, it was best to replace them, or if funds were a problem, then remove them, because any loose part could damage the hub. Sometime in the past that is what must have happened with my Scamp.
