Sorry, looked around for earlier threads on this but couldn't find any.
I have received a new set of Phil Wood sealed bearing cartridges, but I am stuck trying to figure out how to undo the current bearings. On the photo below you can see a spacer that's perfectly smooth so can't be wrenched out. Inside the spacer there is a hex key pattern, but with no way of applying resistance to the spline I just end up spinning it endlessly. There was an identical (?) spacer on the other side that came off without force.
Any suggestions as to the next step?
Put some Allen keys in the holes, I can’t remember the size, 8mm perhaps. Might be smaller on the front hub, you might need one on either side depending on how tightly they are
