Yep, I did just that and was able to loosen the hex nuts. Once I got the one side done, I was able to shove the shaft far enough in the other direction to expose the hex nuts and remove them as well. Problem is that the shaft will still not come out. The collars on both ends are free wheeling and the shaft turns freely. It looks like the collars are integral to the bearings. I really don't want to force the bearings out. I may never be able to re-insert them.Originally Posted by Greg ShafferYou may be able to cut down an allen wrench (hex tool) short enough.....dremel tool etc.
