Hey guys,

Those of you with the OTC hubtamer tool p/n 6490, can you help me out? I'm in the process of removing the rear bearing and a little stuck. I'm puzzled as to why the "forcing screw" 503052 isn't going into p/n 311881 easily. Could I have a bad p/n 311881? The threads on both parts look clean and not galled. It almost feel like the thread on p/n 311881 is slightly tapered. I'd say only about 1/4" of the forcing screw goes before it becomes extremely tight. I used the forcing screw to remove the outer hub with ease so I know the screw is in good shape.

Thanks for any help.

Those two parts go right together with mine. Be sure to grease the screw when using it. You may have a bad part.

Best of luck.

Yeah, I suspect one part was not tapped well from the manuf. I still got the job done using the supplied non hardened nut but I prefer to have all parts working...specially for the cost of this tool! Sure is a nice tool though.
