I started my rebuild tonight. I had the weeping of fluid from the locking hubs going on. I knew something was up. I spent 2 hours after work starting the tear down.. got as far as removing the rotor. The 8 14mm spindle bolts is next. Fluid was dripping out continuously. The trickiest part was that pesky little snap ring. Geeeezu. What is that saying? "Patience is a virgin?" (or something like that.) Well.. I'm not one.. So I guess this is my right of passage as a newbie (of sorts) cruiser owner. I have never done anything like this before. No wrenching to ever speak of. My first axle rebuild. I'm definitely screwed.
