How to disassemble phil wood hubs

Dear all;
I have a pair of Phil Wood hubs I bought on eBay and would like to replace the bearings with newer ones. My question is how do you take them apart? Hubs are mid 70s vintage. I'm overseas so sending to Phil would equal a new pair of hubs after appropriate taxes and shipping are paid!
4mm allen key fits in easy inside skewer hole with nothing inside to turn, 5mm wont fit!
Thanks in advance for your help.

Contact Phil Wood to see if they can e-mail you an instruction sheet. They don't have one posted on their web site so you will have to talk to or e-mail them directly.
