    I need help removing this hub. It spins but it won't come out and I don't want to break it. I already removed all the screws. Thanks! IMG_20190417_182020142_HDR-459x816.jpg

    You may have to remove the end cap that had the Allen head screws...and then look into hub to find a lock ring in the end of the spindle shaft. Then the rest if the hub will slide off.

    I did. But the springs that are attached to it keeps holding the end cap.

    Just to ask...are the hubs in the lock or free position? May want to turning it some to free it up?

    I did move the dial back and forth several times. Maybe is just stuck with dirt. Tomorrow I will spray some wd40 or pb blaster inside to see if it loosens up.

    Is there a model number on the hub?

    Maybe turn the dial and screw it back in to the body? Can you do that and pull the body further out? I too am thinking snap ring.

    here is a pic of the locking dial (end cap) with springs etc - once this is removed, and some of the grease cleaned up from inside the remaining body of the hub, you will see the lock ring (its also in the pic on the bench to right). As Glenn says - if you have any kind of identification/model number, that might help as I am just assuming it functions like the ones I have (it certainly looks like mine.

    I'm glad you have a picture, looks different than I figured. Seems his should just pull out also then.....must be just stuck.

    The end cap does pull out. I agree it is just stuck.
