Arrow t4 quick change hubs

i bought a t4 that has the quick change hubs (for dog bones), and i believe the bearings are shot. I took the two set screws out, took the pin out and cant get the damn thing off. What am i missing here???? Unless its froze on the axle, cant figure it out.....

It must be froze on the axle somehow but anyway just take a small flathead screwdriver and place it between the hub and hub carrier and pry it off. If you've taken the two set screws on opposite sides out AND the pin there should be nothing else keeping the quick release hub on. Good luck!

Also once you get the hub off I reccommend a mod that quite a few people have used with much success... Get a pair of B44 Rear Hub Carriers and bearings to fit those. The outer bearings are larger and last longer!

ASC9730 - Rear Hub Carriers - $5
ASC7935 - 3/16X1/2 bearing (outer) - $5
ASC3977 - 3/16X3/8 bearing (inner) - $5

Just an idea for ya!
