Rear Wheel Hub

Ok. I snapped 3 bolts on the chain sprocket that mounts to the rear hub. Must be too much horsepower. No, not really sure how they snapped. But my problem is where to get a new hub. I got one bolt out, but the other 2, no dice. I think it is a Performance Machine wheel. There are numbers on the hub, 213142 0124-6435. Where can I find one? Every time something goes wrong it is hard to find anything. Thanks guys

use an Easy-Out or take to a machine shop. Way cheaper than replacing! I can tell you that happened because you didn't have locktite in threads. It has happened to me a couple of times when I took rear wheel to have tire replaced and thread locker wasn't used. I learned a hard lesson, but still run into this. I sheared off the bolts that hold my front rotor in place a week ago. You'd think I would have taken my own advice!

If it's a PM wheel I can get you a hub. Have you tried a left hand drill bit? Sometimes they work. Basically when it snags in the hole it catches and unscrews the bolt. It that don't work just dril it out with drill bit slightly smaller than the threads. Usually you can pick out what's left once the pressure is taken away. Also knowing when to stop if it's not coming out is a good thing too. Most machine shops can fix it. I used to have a buddy at the local race car chassis shop that would bail me out when I did screw shit up. I learned a lot watching him and rarely get into those situations as I get older.

Ok I ordered a new hub. If you are wondering about the old one I got 2 of the 3 bolts out and then there became a problem. Hub was only $180. I bought bearings and bolts. Now the question is, with a chrome hub, I need to remove 1 bearing and install 2. How should I go about doing it? Now going to put heat on the chrome. Maybe let it sit in the sun and freeze the bearings. What do you guys think?
Thanks

I tried to find a picture of your hub with those numbers...I couldn't find one, but would be nice to have one...You can't tap the bearing out with a long screw driver or something from the other side?....can't picture it.....Does your setup have 2 outside bearings and a center bearing?? 3 total.

I could tap the bearing out with a long screw driver. There is not much of a lip. But if it gets mangled on the way out who cares as long as the hub doesn't get damaged. Just wanted to get some ideas before I screwed it up. It has 2 bearings. One on each half of the hub. Looks to be easy but just like to get ideas before I do anything.

Can you unbolt the hub from the wheel then press the bearings out on a press?
