Just about ready to begin the assembly of the front hub. Managed to get the old speedo drive off as suggested in Stick's. Is there a tried and tested method of fitting the speedo drive wheel? Is it best pressed on with a vice or tapped on with mallet and block of wood?. Should I grease it prior to fitting? Just for info it is the metal type from MB
Cheers
Paul

Putting it in hot water prior to fitting seems to be one of the methods suggested, I think it states this in Stickys manual ;)
