Hi guys.

Thanks for any input.

      the wheel hub is cast steel splined to the axel.....the spline on the hub is worn out.......one reason a 440b is much better than an a......most of those hubs were set in expoxy when replaced

^^^^What he said. I have a pair of Stripped out Hubs from my 440 sitting in storage. When We replaced them we put JB-weld on the splines
