How is the ring removed so the wheel seal can be replaced?
Is their a pin holding it at about 4 o'clock?
Picture is attached.

I don't know what the original locking "pin" was, but when I did mine, it was a short threaded set-screw.  I had to first remove it, and then work on getting the retaining ring to unscrew.

Thanks Scott,

Does the ring turn clockwise to tighten?

My recollection is that both wheels were the same, and that clockwise did tighten the ring.
It was about 8 years ago when I did it and that was before I started taking detailed pictures.  Sorry.

If you need new rings, I had some made. I did not keep extras to sell but I did sell them to Niemoeller and Werner Karasch.

Henry,

It looks like I have to drill out the set screw since someone damaged it.

What do you want for the ring?

Can you send a picture of the ring?

Charles, I don't have extras to sell. I sold stock to Niemoeller and Karasch. Niemoeller has cheaper shipping to the US. I would e-mail Sven Jacob s.jacob@niemoeller.de and ask. I would be surprised if they sold them all, already. They will definitely be over $ 100 ea. Yes you may have to drill out the set screw which I believe is 5 mm. My routine is to drill and tap for a new set screw in different location when reassembling.

For what it's worth, I recall that the toughest part of the whole job for me was getting that ring removed.
If I had it to do again, I believe I would fabricate a piece of flat steel stock with three hardened pins to match the three holes in the ring.
It was very tight and hard to loosen.

Thanks to Henry and Scott for their information.

For now, I put the hub back on the car. It looks like a previous owner had done this project before.
The grease seal had some letters and numbers on it, BA 45 -60 -10.
The width is 60 mm and the depth is 10 mm.
The bearing was 53DE.

I asked Sven at Niemoeller about the rings which were showing on the website as not available. This is an error, they are available. I must say that my machinist did a great job on these. We had an NOS ring to copy which helped.
