    (I used a 3.5x magnifying glass to examine mine)
    a new spline is symmetrical with a rounded conical ...

  3. #42. Bad tires lead to new wire wheels & hub extensions.....ignorance was bliss

    After ordering the new tires & wire wheels from Allen Hendrix. He said " by the way, have you checked your hub extensions?"
    Huh?

    So I sent him pics of the extensions & sure enough (& no surprise), they are worn down & need replacing.
    i asked him, what would happen if I left the hubs on there?:
