I used to use something similar for cooling electronic parts, and it would work quite well on small things. With something as large as the face of the hub to absorb a lot of it, it'* hard to say how well it might work. Unfortunately, the options are sort of limited.

I tried Roadrunner'* suggestion when a tire shop broke 3 of the studs off my dad'* '95, and I couldn't quite get it on there. You may have better luck with it. It is certainly worth a shot.

Well, I have actually tried roadrunner'* suggestion but no, it didn't work. Sorry! It'* not my weekend, I believe. I have come back home for a rest. Just now a neighbor offers to help me when he comes back two hours later. We will see if it will be anything better. He actually lives dowstairs and just yards from my car. I bet I may ask to use his electricity and take him out for a meal or something, if he likes. But he said he thinks we should try a big hammer first and he appears to have a lot more experience than me. So we will see. He doesn't drive a Bonne though.

Anyway, let it rest a while for now. I have to do something else. The wife was complaining yesterday! :(

Yeah...a big hammer has been suggested a couple of times. Do that before drilling. Good luck...let us know how it goes.

You're wife was complaining yesterday - and today you're going to do something else? Let us know when you're out of the doghouse.

OK, my neighbor hasn't come back yet. But I bet PB Blaster and CRC freeze-off at last did the jobs correctly. It came off with a relatively small hammer! Already replaced the brake pads and I should assemble everything together pretty soon.

Don't worry. When I said I wanted to do something sles, I meant I went to do laundry, call the old bank to close account, all those things she likes to hear. She is in her office making big money today, anyway. She will be happy when she comes back.

Ha, Archon, I just noticed you live in Grand Rapids. I may see you on the street sometimes. I work there.

Great news. Glad that it finally decided to cooperate with you! It must have heard about the bigger hammer.
I wasn't worried, except for you. If it takes you 24 hours to do something that wifey suggests, it often leads to being deep in the doo-doo.
Yup, I'm in GR...just look for the "old man" (I think that'* at least one of the names that Boosty has for me...my son likes it too) in the Black 2000 Ei. If you couldn't get the sucker off, my offer was to be that if you wanted to drive here, we'd see what we could do with the thing.
