I'm in the process of rebuilding my axle and when I pulled the locking hub off one side, it came out pre-dissembled. The problem is that I can't figure out how to get it back together. Can anyone suggest and tips or tricks? Or is this one junk at this point?

It can be done easily if I had it in hand. Simply said the entire engage and disengage must take place with the 3/4 cycle of the handle. So with the inner hub ring out put the handle in lock and apply slight pressure so the screwing action begins immediately as you turn the hub handle to free. In Free it should be 100% retracted and on the threads evenly. Is that a stock hub. They are very easy once you get the knack. Good Luck. I hope I helped out.
