Sorry bout the noob question but I need to know weather I should have picked up the steel adapter part that held the steering wheel to the axle thingy bit that looks like this





It was installed in a Dihatsu K type van in a junk yard and the hub bit wasn't a milled billet looking type but a plain factory looking yellowish galvanized steel item ...

I thought it wasnt so important since I scored the actual wheel ...also didnt have a removal tool etc.

Is this part important ,is it worth buying the removal tool and driving back to the junk yard???


Thanks ahead !!!

There are some Japanese ones here that are cheap and look OK (I'm no expert)

I'm not sure where they are made...re badged Chinese item Japanese package???

If they were Jap made it would be of decent quality

As far as non-quick release hubs are concerned, price is a very unreliable indicator of quality. Based on a recommendation from another member of this forum, I gambled $12.95 on this hub:

Turns out it's a HKB OR18 hub, though the ad has a photo of a generic hub. Like a lot of products these days, there is probably one or two factories somewhere in Asia cranking these out. The "racing shop" has them packaged in their box, and the item is priced accordingly. The words Hyper, Mega, JDM and a few others I forget right now are, I'm sure, worth a few extra bucks when printed on the box.

I seriously doubt there's any functional, aesthetic, or safety difference between my $12.95 cast aluminum hub and somebody elses $129.50 cast aluminum hub. If there is, I'm all ears and I certainly want to hear about it.
