Is the keyway worn in the hub? If the set screw and jamb nut loosen up, the key AND the hub will wear, causing a loose wheel.....

The keyway is OK, and I didn't see any setscrew or jam nut in the hub. There is just a washer and Bear Hug Nut that keep the hub on the taper. My problem is when Gravely people machined the parts, the milled taper doesn't go through the casting on the hub and there is a coller left in there preventing the hub from going up onto the taper on the axle. I just wanted to remove them to paint them, and am finding this problem. Thank you.

That's weird, so adding another washer behind the nut won't force it up the taper because of that ridge? Something ain't right there.....I've never dealt with the 2 wheelers, sorry I can't help Bob.

Just responding and caring about others is important. You tried your best and have helped in the past, that means a lot to me. I did manage to remove one off the other Gravely, but had to remove the drive shaft to force the hub off. And yes the ridge left in the hub was the problem as the other hubs don't have it. Thank you.
