I'm neither mechanical nor a linear thinker, but I know of a couple
reasons for removing a wheelhead. One, if there is a problem with the
shaft mechanism or the wheelhead itself, the wheelhead may need to be
removed. Two, if you have a Shimpo Master Series wheel and desire to
install the large more-or-less permanent splash pan, the wheelhead needs
to be removed first. Three, if you ARE of a mechanical bent and are
incredibly curious like some people's support persons, then you might
remove the wheelhead just to see what's happening in there.

In the Mojave sorry about the flood, but enjoying the moist, damp feel
to the skin, carpet and furniture. Strange... we've been out of
Kentucky too long, maybe...
