Hi guys. I’m fitting Al hubs, new larger stubs and bearings to my GT6. One side sets up ok but the other, the N/S, doesn’t. Usual quandary of split pin hole aligns and hub feels like it’s dragging/too tight or, other split pin hole aligns and the thick outer spacer turns with the hub! I’m not comfortable with the spacer turning as it’s doing so against the nut, and it just doesn’t seem right. I will check the torque on the nut when I can get hold of the right size socket as the instructions do state not to go beyond 8 lbs/ft. I’m not normally one for actually tightening a hub nut but, is that the thing to do with these hubs/bearings? Has anyone else had to tighten the hub nut more than you would normally?
Does anybody have any experience with Powertune branded parts? Bought a rear hub trunnion bushing repair kit from a reputable supplier. Compared it with the old set, and everything is off by about 1-2 mm. The inner steel tube sits very lose in the blue bushing. Don’t think you should see light shining through, not really filling me with confidence. Also bought some Powertune bearings, decided to google that – most links screams avoid.
