Help removing stuck lock nut- sealed bearing change fail
So I finally got around to replacing the sealed bearings on my bianchi wheel set.
Tried the rubber mallet but it was a no-go. Regular hammer popped them right out.
I was following the directions found here
, using my old bearings as a buffer between the lock nuts. Things went swimingly and the bearings on both sides eased right into place.
My only problem is that one side didnt unthread, and now it seems pretty well jammed in place. How can I get the one locknut to back off?
I can still get it out of the hub, but no matter what ways i thought of trying to tighten the other sides, when i attempt to loosen this now locked side, it just spins off the other nut.
