That's a problem with "repairing" wheels.
You have no idea how the spoke tensions etc. are until you check them.
You have to have your disclaimer up front that the wheel may have "unresolvable" problems AND what the course of action will be.

The customer may have already had the wheel "trued" and been dissatisfied.
In steps Clark and says "I can fix that wheel"!
You end up in a somewhat embarrassing situation as now......

You have to have a "PLAN B" in place before you start.
Never assume the customer is totally ignorant about the situation and you can fool them.
