I have an old project 93 Integra I'm working on and I have some minor front
end work to do before it's on the road again. I have a question about the
registration or alignment of the hub-axle splines...
In order to ensure that the hub and axle splines mate up perfectly, is there
a registration mark or preferred method? Do I need to drag a marking knife
from one part to the next to ensure perfect assembly? I damaged the splines
on an old hub years ago and I was wondering if maybe there's a better way?
Do I need graphite, heat or assy lube??
To make sure I'm being clear:
1) hub is separated from knuckle (I have a press so no issues there)
2) pass side half shaft axle is being replaced
3) Is there a sure-fire method of ensuring that the mating splines between
the hub and axle mesh and don't get damaged? I assume I will need a slide
hammer or mallet to get them in flush with each other once they're aligned
Thanks in advance.
