Step #8 is where it gets hairy. I foolishly used a steel chisle and a ball peen hammer to punch the threaded end of the hub out the other side, so I could remove the hub and replace the outer bearing. When I finally got the hub out, I realized it was so deformed and damaged that it would not receive a new castle-nut and allow it to thread properly. I used a grinder to attempt to remove the deformities and burs. I attempted to reassemble the hub into the wheel carrier, but the new castle nut stripped while trying to put it back on. I think I need a new hub. Does anyone know where I can get one, or what alternatives I can take without having to go to the junkyard and take one off? If anyone needs photos, let me know and I will post some tomorrow.
