    45 front hub races

    A couple of these hubs have scored races. Has anyone turned them in a lathe, and used oversized ball bearings?

    I'd find a better hub - they are not that rare. If I was going to fix them I would probably use a carbide round bit for a dremel the same diameter as the ball and mount the wheel hub in a lathe and the dremel in the tool holder and try to 'sink' the race slightly deeper. Another option would be to go to a different bearing set-up and cut the old races out.
