I'm thinking of drilling a hole in my drain plug so I can attach it to my keys so I don't lose it while it's out, and as a reminder to put it in.

Any reason not to?

No snap ring... but I found a trailer sales and repair place that was able to get it off for me. There's a nick in the spindle that causes my issues.

But it's done, and riding better than ever. Did put a kink in my early to Louisville plans, but there's always next meet.

We will be heading up there early on Friday Morning to meet everyone for lunch!

Are you sure there is not a snap ring in there? If there is your gonna need snap ring plyers to remove,.........well it makes it easier to remove the snap ring.

dang trey......all i can suggest is treat it like pulling a flywheel.......soak the crap out of it with a good penetrating oil.......(wd-40 does not count).......place some 2x4's in behind the hub on both sides and make 4 wedges, screw one wedge to the 2x4 and drive the other down over top to put pressure against the back of the hub.........put the nut back on till it is flush with the end of the spindle.........with another block of wood (preferable hardwood) hit the end of the spindle with your big ass hammer, using the wood to protect against damageing .....just keep driving that wedge down for max pressure to pop it off........
best of luck........this is a first cup of coffee idea....... :ohno:

The fun just keeps going on and on...

I went and got some of the fancy new hubs from Northern Tool with the grease fitting, and the left side went right on without a hitch!

Unfortunately, I can't get the old right side hub off. The outer race seems to be stuck.

I may be later to Louisville.

Old guitar strings work great for this. A couple pieces of broom stick for handles on each end of the wire and you're good to go.

Use a heat gun, or torch if you have to. Warm up the sealant you used on the spagetti gasket. Work around the edge gently prying with a flat head screwdriver. You can also use a wire, or strong fishing line to cut through the sealant.
