Rear Hub Problems

I started to remove my rotor from the rear hub and only two of the nuts came loose. The other two felt as if they were moving but did not come off. I believe the studs or bolts are turning in the hub. I stopped and tried to remove the sprocket. Same result , two of them turned but did not loosen. Did I damage the hub ? Is there any way to take off the sprocket and rotor without cutting the nuts or studs ?

Rear hub 77 Triumph has 4 through bolts bolt head is by sprocket nuts go on rotor side. Place a wrench on bolt head. Place another on the nut. Apply correct amount of force everything should come apart.

Other choice is a little C4 will loosen everything.

Better than I even imagined, K. Thanks so much. I was kinda saving the C4 for a special occasion.

I sure hope wherever you are working there is heat. It's cold around here!

I'm in the dungeon under a quartz work light. I have light, heat, tunes, and warm wrenches.

Sprocket/Disk Bolts and Nuts

When I rebuilt the wheel I had to put the bolt thru the disk side cause the other way it interfered with the speedo drive which is on the disk side.

It doesn't actually matter which way round they go aslong as they're all there and they're all tight (and not interfering with anything else!). I always use new Nyloc nuts and a drop of Loctite 243 if I have any handy.

Mine have a nut on each side ? PO must have put in studs or threaded rods assuming that didn't come that way. I still haven't pulled the rotor and sprocket as I'm playing with the clutch at the moment. I'll do it tomorrow. There are lock nuts on it now that appear to be Triumph.
