Well, I tackled my first front hub disassembly last week. I probably didn't do all the stuff that I should have done (be organized, take notes, be neat, etc) but I didn't lose any ball bearings, so that was a good thing!
Anyhow, everything went back together fine BUT does the skewer/cut/cone go into the wheel only one way? I fitted the wheel back onto the bike and it seems to fit better one way, rather than the other. Remember when I said that I didn't take notes? Well, I'm not sure if I stuck the assembly back into the wheel from the correct side or not? I think I might have done that ...
Does it matter? Is it marked somehow as to left side or right side? I haven't had a chance to take it all apart again and try it. I guess I will if I have to. Also, is white lithium grease OK for the bearings?
