Free-wheel hubs

Somewhere I've got something about the hubs. I'll look for it and see what I can send you. It might be make specific though. I think what I've got is for Warn hubs.

what you're describing are the Fairey freewheel hubs. What you have to do is to unscrew the small screw and if you look carefully you should see a little nylon ring in there. Hook it out with a small screwdriver and you should find it has a long tail which goes all the way around the edge of the hub. As you pull it out the aluminium cap of the hub will spring off so be careful! When you get the cap off the rest is pretty self evident. 'Refitting is reverse of removal'
Hope that helps

Free wheel hub diagrams

I've scanned the diagrams and I'll try to attach them, (not to good at this sort of thing). Excuse the [email protected]#p headings to the diagrams. I've got the Warn hubs fitted to my Landy. Hope these help.

As I thought I can't upload the pdf file. :mad: Any ideas how to do it?? :confused

As a personal thing i'd stick with the EP90, have heard of people using "oneshot" greasbut my preference would be for original lubricants according to manufacturers book.

I always use the LR oneshot grease. Works very well, particularly on more, ahem, worn swivel balls. I have no problems with lubrication inside the hub.
Look around where the flared part of the screw head meets the aluminium cap and you will find the head of the nylon strap you pull out. It is there.
