I need help! I have an 84 R/C; the front hubs are made by Superwinch. Last November I had ball joints put on the right side. Now I’m trying to remove the hub to grease the wheel bearings. One of the allen screws is rounded, it must of happen at the shop that did the joints. Any suggestion on removing a striped allen? Does Superwinch sell them?
Thanks
Joe

The only solution that comes to mind is an Eaz-Out Kit, available @ ANY auto parts house. As far as the allen head bolt replacement, it doesn't hurt to call Superwinch, and or ask your parts house dealer.

It's possible that with a little care, a drill and the right sized bit you can drill just the head off the allen screw w/o messing up the hub cover. Then when you've got the rest of the screws out, the hub will slide over the remaining threaded area. Then a pair of vise grips will probably be able to crank it out. You should be able to pick up the allen head screws at any fastener supply place. Might want to replace them all, I'd at least inspect the remaining ones to make sure they aren't hacked up.

I had one break off right at the hub. I said screw it and just left it out, but I put a dab of silicon sealeant in the hold to keep water out. One less to take out when I'm packing the bearings.
