Velocity hubs--rebuild parts and tips needed

I've got a Velocity Deep V wheelset that's been astoundingly bombproof under my 235 lbs. for about 10K miles now. They're beginning to show their age, though, in the form of increased bearing friction and a notched freehub body. I've had no luck getting responses from Velocity itself or their US dealers (including the one I bought the wheels from). Can't even figure out how to get them apart, and I've been doing my own wrenching for 35+ years now. Any tips on where to find replacement bearings and a freehub body for these wheels, or tips on how to get them apart? From a search it appears that the hubs are rebadged Formulas, but their site only shows current models, so any cross reference info would be helpful also.

You need to show us a picture of the hubs or tell us what they are. Velocity wheelset means velocity rims to me. Doesn't say anything about the hubs. Maybe someone who's familiar with the particular wheelset can chime in. All their website says is that they are "shimano compatible", gee thanks.
