    Bought a brand new made in canada bendix splined hub for the 2nd bearing design D44/10bolt. Looks great, but when I go to put my MM hub body into the splines it's to tight. Have to lightly hammer it in and use a puller to pull it out. I have a good OEM used hub that the MM hub body slips right in and out no issues. So does anyone know what's up with this bendix hub? Are they supposed to be this tight? b/c I'm thinking about returning the thing getting my $80 and looking for another good OEM hub.

    Those hubs are not very common, and the sales rate is flat, I am guessing
    that wharehousee sell a few in a years time. I have only installed them
    twice, but I have installed the hub and rotor as one assembly 3857093209
    times fron Bendix never a tight fit. They make a good quailty product, maybe
    your got damage/warped, or is just out of tolarence.
