    White Industries hub-can it be rebuilt?-Worth it?

    I came into some Katrina stuff recently.One item is wheelset-White industry hubs with 217 rims.They are pretty smooth considering they spent 4 weeks underwater, but I'm wondering if these hubs are rebuildable-can you change the bearings-and it is worth doing?They are pretty nice wheels.
    There is a little oil hole on one side of the hubs; it probably leads to the bearings, so they must not be sealed bearings.How can I get the hub apart and get at the bearings.Thanks,Charlie
    PS They are really nice, true wheels-very light also.I really want to save them.

    I have never worked on them, but other mechanics (very good ones) that I trust, hated the thought of having to do a repair on them.

    Thanks-got front apart

    Thanks guys.I got the front apart.The bearing are sealed-more or less-and replaceable 6903 rs.One is seized, the other isn't.Downside is they probably cost $10 each from a bearing supply house.Heck,I 'll fix it anyway.I feel for the wheel.Thanks.Charlie
