removing rear wheel splines - need advice

Postby davekrovetz » Tue Aug 24, 2010 9:50 am



While doing other work on my bike the rear wheel had to be pulled. So I want to lubricate the splines. I can't get the splines to slide out of the hub. At first the spline assembly would not move at all, now it will move out about 3/16" and stop. I have given each pin/ bushing a bit of sprayed in lubricant and am letting it sit. Any other suggestions? I want to put Moly 60 on the splines and the pins.

stupid question but, you removed all the nuts right? It should pull right out.We're talking the splines in the wheel itself ,the final drive flange?

I just got it out. It is the one that sits inside the rear hub. I think the bike sat so long that the grease inside on some of the surfaces had dried out. Anyway, the pins and the spline come out as a unit and that is exactly what I got it to do - after a lot of annoying work. Now it is greased with Moly 60 and reassembled, ready to go back on the rear drive. Thanks.

A brass cleaning brush for a .38 cal. pistol chucked up in a drill is handy for cleaning out those holes.
