Anyone know how to replace the bearings on a Phil Wood rear road hub. Its an older model - 126m screwed thread for old type freewheel. It does not have the end caps held on by allan key fitings and the bearings are 2 differant sizes ..
What do Phil Wood say?
It's a normal pull off caps and hammer out axle hub
It’s the ‘pull off caps’ bit that eludes me.
The bearings should be pretty easy to replace once you figure out how to get them out. Cartridge bearings have a code / number (R8, for instance) on the shield you can search for this to ensure you’re getting the exact same replacement. These codes are same for different manufacturers. SKF bearings are worth getting.
Hm the end caps are either screw on, which the OP said they weren't.
Which leaves them being push on or push in. All you need is axle vise and vise. Or cloth and pair of pliers.
Anyone could access Phil Wood's pdf manuals? Getting 404 error...
Edit: Google has the old site, go direct to philwood.com
Oddly enough I discovered that only this afternoon while trying to find info on a PW tandem hub.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
