    Hi, I'll simply say pinch bolt issues - it ain't moving. Got the two end sections out (having cut through) but the centre section is lodged firmly. No end of heat and banging is getting it to shift. Managed to elongate the hole to boot. So, does anyone have a bare hub and I'll start afresh?

    cheers, Jamie

    Just remember there are two bearing sizes.

    If you get another hub it needs to match.
