    Polish any scoring or grooving in the hub wiht some 600 sandpaper and clean up the surface thoroughly afterward.


    It is a good idea to pack some grease between the front seal lips before installing the hub. Lube the inside and outside of the hub with engine oil when you install it. Pull the hub on with a threaded installer....not a hammer.

    You can get a sleeve called a "speedy sleeve" for most engines that will provide a non grooved surface that slips over the hub, check to see if they make one for your engine.
