I've got the rear wheel off for tire change and I've been cleaning up the inner hub area but I tried to pull the hub flange out and it's stuck. It rocks slightly so I don't think it's the studs. I don't recall if I've ever had this flange out. Anybody got any ideas on what's going on with it and perhaps what caused it to get stuck in there in the first place? Over torquing of axle nut? Frozen up from oxidation?

I carefully pried the hub off. It was stuck! The moly was gummy underneath and the mating surfaces had some light surface corrosion. I'll clean it up and give it a proper moly paste application.

Cool.

I was going to suggest prying carefully. Sounds like you did.

All splines are sharp showing little discernible wear. I now have a recollection of pulling it down summer before last just to make sure the splines were greased(PO proofing). I was a little befuddled by the stuck hub. Never had one do that before. Get the Spitfire mounted tomorrow and break it in on a high desert jaunt this weekend.

It maybe a language barrier:?but sharp splines just like sharp sprocket teeth are worn out.

I've posted these pix before, and people are probably tired of seeing them. But they have value.

This one is worn out - to the point of skipping:



This one is new out of the box, with Moly60 added:
