Title: Wanted - Beta Hub tool
Post by: ah_sprite on 02 March, 2012, 01:25:31 PM
Hi all

I'm in search of the tool required in the hub bearing removal process on my Stratos replica (beta hubs/uprights). Does someone have one that I could borrow for a couple of weeks?

Regards
Richard

Richard, have you tried Betaboyz (Tony Harrison) they may be able to help.

On my Beta and Gamma wheel bearing locking rings I just use a flat bar of steel cut to fit exactly into diametrically opposite castellations.  I put the steel bar in a large vice and then lower the hub onto it so that the bar engages in the locking ring and then I turn the hub using large stilsons or whatever and usually the ring comes undone.  Occasionally, I have to resort to belting the locking ring with a cold chisel and lump hammer.

I have a box of assorted Beta tools but dont know what most of them are for. Can you post the slotted nut dimensions?

Many thanks for the above words of advice.

Afraid I can't post dimensions as my car is still in one piece, but the tool can be seen in this thread.

The tool pictured below, I borrowed from Mark Wastnidge

sadly I/Mark ? lent it to someone and it was not returned :'(,

If anyone has one, we would be very interested in borrowing/hiring it
with the view to get them re-manufactured.

Tony,

Have just checked my box and I believe I have the tool you need.
Happy to loan it to whoever needs it.
It weighs about a pound and a half so packing and postage would be about 4.

Seems to have gone a bit quiet on this thread!
 Do you still want the tool Richard?

I think Richard has eliminated a failed bearing as the cause of his problem (as posted on at www.stratosec.com ) but it's always useful to know that the special tool is out there and available!

Sorry for the enormous delay in replying, chaps! Had a bit of a busy week.

Thanks for the offer of the tool though, much appreciated!

Richard
