removing a wire wheel
« on: September 27, 2018, 05:29:00 PM »
The rear wheels slide off their splined hubs easily; those at the front don't.

Do you have any thoughts or ideas re: how I might temporarily modify a puller so that it will work without damaging the wires, or do you have other ideas?  I'm certain that others have had to deal with this problem.

Thank you

BTW, where do I set up a username?

Having had an MGB with balky wheels, I found the best bet was to clean the splines on the wheels and hubs both. I used a wire wheel in my drill motor, and light lubrication afterward. It helped if I kept the splines lightly lubed. No build up of grease to trap dust, dirt, and sand. Normal rotation of the tires, and inspection of the splines at that time, should be sufficient intervals for checking the splines, or once a year at the least.

Yes, but I need to get them off first.
