Simple Rear Hub Tip!
Posted by: iamuwere on Thursday, April 20, 2006 - 10:54 PM
Maintenance and Tuning Tricks to remove sticky rear hubs.

Rear hubs can be difficult to remove after "fusing" themselfs to the rear axle. Whether drive, brake, or wheel hubs, banging away with a hammer is no good. Instead try this little trick:
Split hubs may not fully release their grip when the cinch bolts are loosened. Remove one of the bolts (if there are two or more) and loosen the other(s). If only one bolt, just remove it. Then slip a metal blank, washer, screw driver, etc into the slot of the hub and insert the bolt again FROM THE WRONG SIDE of the hub. Run this bolt down until it bottoms out against the inserted metal.
As you tighen the bolt, it will push against the object, forcing the hub to open up that slot and the hub will slide off more easily.
Clean the axle with some fine emory paper, slide the hub back on, and then remove the bolt and inserted object. Reinstall the bold properly and all is back to normal.
