Thanks, Dwight! U-da-Man! I guess those socket bolts are supposed to be tight. Do you torque 'em down & locktite when installing?
: Go down to your Sears or Home Depot and buy two or three metric socket allens (allen hex in a sockte). You may end up using one or two to remove the capscrews and the last one to install them. Then, you can get some decent leverage with a long rachet wrench or breaker bar.
: I'm planning on using my electric impact wrench with a swivel to do the job.
: Also, it would help to do a overnight soak with Liquid Wrench. BTW, replace any of the bolts where the hexs are begininng to round off.
: It also wouldn't hurt to put a index mark on both the shaft and the hub to make sure that everything goes back in the same orientation.
